Abstract

1. Fallopian tube catheterization is a simple extension of conventional hysterosalpingography with use of angiographic technique and angiographic equipment. 2. The procedure substantially improves diagnosis of fallopian tube disease and helped 59 of 66 (89%) patients avoid surgery for diagnosis and/or treatment of proximal fallopian tube obstruction. 3. The catheterization technique also has promising potential for nonsurgical treatment of infertility caused by proximal fallopian tube obstruction. In a mean follow up of 3.5 months, 10 of 52 (19%) women with patent tubes after the procedure became pregnant. For a final evaluation of the therapeutic effectiveness of the procedure, however, more experience will be needed.
