During laparoscopic salpingectomy, a fallopian tube
is removed. This procedure is performed with a minimally invasive method
that utilizes a laparoscope (a small video camera) and small instruments
inserted through small incisions.
Treated with Laparoscopic Salpingectomy:
Laparoscopic salpingectomy may be performed in cases
of blocked fallopian tube, fallopian tube cancer or infection, ectopic
pregnancy and ruptured fallopian tube.
An ectopic pregnancy might resolve on its own.
Surgical alternatives to laparoscopic salpingectomy include open salpingectomy,
salpingostomy and laparoscopic salpingostomy.
with Laparoscopic Salpingectomy:
Laparoscopic salpingectomy is performed under
general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely
unaware during the procedure.
Complications from Laparoscopic Salpingectomy:
Possible risks following laparoscopic salpingectomy
include infection, bleeding and a negative reaction to the anesthesia.
after Laparoscopic Salpingectomy:
The prognosis for a positive end result following
laparoscopic salpingectomy is good. However, the patient will be infertile if
both fallopian tubes are removed.
from Laparoscopic Salpingectomy:
Total recovery from laparoscopic salpingectomy takes three to four
