Treatment For Blocked Fallopian Tubes | Symptoms of Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Treatment for blocked fallopian tubes, In this video, SimpliHealth expert, Dr. Heena Chawla, consultant gynecologist at Apollo Clinic and CHD City Hospital is talking about the treatment for blocked fallopian tubes.
What are the treatment options available for blocked tubes?
When we do HSG, it helps open any proximal blockage of tubes. Apart from this, if the tubes are healthy, we try to open them by laparoscopic procedures. More commonly known as tubal cannulation.
Tubal cannulation is a very easy procedure.
Factors to assist before surgery :
But before doing this surgery for fallopian tubes, it is very important to assess the other factors. Like ovaries are functioning correctly or the husband has normal sperm counts.
If there is a problem in the husband’s sperm count, or if I say there is impairment in the formation of eggs in the ovaries; then instead of going for laparoscopic procedures for fallopian tubes. We must directly opt for IVF which is In-vitro fertilization.
If there are other factors also contributing to infertility, then in these cases, IVF helps a lot. But if there is water filled in the tubes, then the success rate of IVF is reduced to 50% in the hydrosalpinx condition.
So under these circumstances, we either remove the tubes or clip them off. Or chip off their communication with the uterus. By doing this, we can increase the success rate of IVF to a great extent.
