Disease relevance of Salpingostomy


High impact information on Salpingostomy


Chemical compound and disease context of Salpingostomy


Biological context of Salpingostomy

  • SETTING: Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Haemek Medical Center, Afula, Israel. PATIENT(S): One hundred one women who were treated for tubal pregnancy: 58 by salpingostomy and 43 by local MTX injection [10].

Anatomical context of Salpingostomy


Associations of Salpingostomy with chemical compounds

  • The tube was preserved in 46 (90%) patients in the methotrexate group versus 45 (92%) in the salpingostomy group (rate ratio 0.98 [95% CI 0.87-1.1]) [7].
  • INTERVENTIONS: After randomization, 20 of these patients were treated with a local injection of hyperosmolar (50%) glucose solution and 20 women by salpingostomy [13].
  • Laser CO2 microsurgical salpingostomies were performed on 76 patients between January 1979 and January 1984 [14].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether preoperative measurements of progesterone and hCG in serum can predict the risk of needing a second therapeutic intervention after laparoscopic salpingostomy [15].
  • It appears that linear salpingostomy could be done for ampullary pregnancy without jeopardizing luminal integrity [16].

Gene context of Salpingostomy

  • CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic salpingectomy should be considered for all women with hydrosalpinges due to undergo IVF; further research is required to assess other pre-IVF surgical interventions (such as needle aspiration of hydrosalpinx fluid, laparoscopic proximal tubal occlusion and laparoscopic salpingostomy) for women with hydrosalpinges [17].
