Tubal Ligation – Fimbriectomy

Tubal Reversal is Possible after Fimbriectomy

Fimbriectomy tubal ligation

Fimbriectomy tubal ligation removes a portion of the fallopian tube.

Fimbriectomy

Tubal ligation by fimbriectomy involves removing a portion (usually up to one-third) of the fallopian tube closest to the ovary. With microsurgical techniques, the end of the remaining fallopian tube can be opened and the inner tubal lining gently folded outward over the cuff to improve the chances of egg capture. This tubal reversal procedure is called microsurgical salpingostomy.

Reversing Fimbriectomy tubal ligation

Fimbriectomy tubal ligation has a 30-40% pregnancy rate after tubal reversal.

Final Result

It is generally thought that tubal reversal cannot be successful following a fimbriectomy because of the loss of the important egg-capturing fimbria. Fortunately, the inner lining of the remaining tube also has the cilia that help transport the egg into and down the tube once it has been reopened. Cilia are particularly abundant in the ampullary portion of the fallopian tube. The length of the remaining tube and presence or absence of its ampullary segment can be determined by x-ray (hysterosalpingogram). This is recommended prior to undergoing a salpingostomy procedure. The pregnancy rate after fimbriectomy tubal reversal is 30-40%.
