Abstract

Ten infertile women 20 to 40 years of age, with a standard HSG diagnosis of unilateral proximal tubal obstruction, underwent a transvaginal catheterization and recanalization of the fallopian tubes. To set a fluoroscopic real-time guidance technique for improving the results of transvaginal catheterization and recanalization of the fallopian tubes and to increase its marginal safety, catheterization was performed under digital road mapping guidance. Transcervical catheterization resulted in an immediate patency of the obstructed tube in all 10 women. Three women conceived 2 to 3 months after the procedure. The improved catheterization technique enables good results in the diagnosis and treatment of proximal tubal obstructions.
