Abstract

A device was developed for hysterosalpingography and fallopian tube recanalization. It differs from the previously used vacuum-cup device in that the central shaft slides and has an acorn-shaped tip. Optimal results were obtained in all 14 women (100%) who underwent catheterization with the new device; optimal results were achieved in only five of eight women (62%) who underwent catheterization with the fixed-shaft device during the same time period.
