Tubal reanastomosis results of our clinic: A tertiary center experience
Keywords:tubal reanastomosis, fertility, laparoscopic surgery
Objective: In our study, it was aimed to determine the clinical results of 42 patients who underwent tubal reanastomosis for various reasons.
Materials and Methods: Our study included 42 patients at fertile age who presented to our clinic for tubal reanastomosis between 2017 and 2019. Demographic information and surgery notes of the patients were accessed through the hospital files and hospital archive system. For retrospective screening, patients were contacted by phone and their pregnancy status was learned.
Results: Of the patients, 47.6% (n=20) were operated on due to a wish for fertility, 53.4% (n=22) because of other reasons. The mean age of the patients was 36.2 and the mean number of children of the patients was 4.85. Laparotomy was performed in 23.8% (n=10) of the patients, and laparoscopic surgery in 76.2% (n=32). Our intrauterine pregnancy rate after tubal reanastomosis was calculated as 9.5%.
Conclusion: Tubal reanastomosis can be performed by both laparoscopic and mini-laparotomy methods. We recommend performing bilateral reanastomosis if possible. We think that it would be appropriate to prioritize laparoscopic surgery because it is minimally invasive and provides high pregnancy success.
