Reverse tubal ligation

Tubal ostomy or tubal ligation reversal, a surgical method used for tubal ligation reversal (a procedure to prevent pregnancy by surgical ligation or burning of the fallopian tubes to prevent the passage of eggs from the ovary into the uterus) may be an option for women in Turkey who want to restore their fertility.

What is the success rate of tubal ligation? Tubal ligation reversal ?

The success of the ligation procedure depends on several factors:

  • The length and health of the remaining fallopian tubes to be joined, and the skill of the microsurgeon (surgeon with experience in microsurgery)
  • The woman's age at the time of the reverse surgery
  • Tubal sterilization method during fallopian tube ligation
  • Scar tissue formed in the pelvis after the fallopian tube ligation
  • Partner's sperm test results and other infertility factors. Re-opening the tubes provides a high chance (but not a guarantee) of pregnancy if the woman's tubes are healthy and there are no other factors for infertility.

Under optimal conditions, the pregnancy rate is 75 to 80 percent. This chance of success, as well as the time required to achieve pregnancy after salpingo-oophorectomy, is influenced by the factors mentioned above.

Happen or occur Pregnancy after opening the fallopian tubes Usually during the first year.

What does tubal ligation reversal involve?

Anostomy, or tubal ligation of the fallopian tubes, is a two- to three-hour operation under general anesthesia (sleep).
Laparoscopy (placement of a small scope through the navel) is usually done first to assess the reversibility of the tubes.
If conditions are right, a bikini cut or a small incision is made (from one side to the other) just above the pubic hairline.
A surgical microscope is used to connect the tiny ends of the fallopian tubes with a very fine thread.

A hospital stay is usually not necessary. After surgery, your obstetrician-gynecologist will provide instructions and pain medications for you to take at home. Most patients return to their normal activities within two weeks.

What are the risks of tubal ligation reversal?

Risks are extremely rare, but, as with any operation, complications from anesthesia, bleeding, infection, or damage to other organs may occur.

After a tubal reversal, the risk of an ectopic pregnancy (a tubal pregnancy) increases from 1 in 100 to 5 in 100 pregnancies.

Are you a candidate for tubal stoma?

You are a candidate if there are no medical contraindications for pregnancy, you have sufficient tubal segments and your partner's sperm analysis is normal. Keep in mind that older women have a significantly lower chance of success.

  • Male partner's sperm analysis
