Abstract

Two hundred fifteen infertile women underwent hysterosalpingography (HSG) and laparoscopy. One hundred twenty-eight patients had bilaterally patent tubes on hysterosalpingography. Thirty-one percent of these women had pelvic adhesions diagnosed by laparoscopy. Eighty-seven women had either occluded tubes or suspected pelvic adhesions on hysterosalpingography. Thirty-nine percent of these women had patent tubes without any pelvic pathology on laparoscopy. Inaccurate diagnoses limit the value of hysterosalpingography in evaluation of tubal and peritubal pathology.
