Laparoscopic Salpingectomy

What is Laparoscopic Salpingectomy?

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.

Also Known As:

·         Fallopian tube removal

·         Laparoscopic surgery

Conditions 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.

Non-Surgical or Other Surgical Alternatives to Laparoscopic Salpingectomy:

An ectopic pregnancy might resolve on its own. Surgical alternatives to laparoscopic salpingectomy include open salpingectomy, salpingostomy and laparoscopic salpingostomy.

Anesthesia with Laparoscopic Salpingectomy:

Laparoscopic salpingectomy is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware during the procedure.

Potential Complications from Laparoscopic Salpingectomy:

Possible risks following laparoscopic salpingectomy include infection, bleeding and a negative reaction to the anesthesia.

Prognosis 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.

Recovery from Laparoscopic Salpingectomy:

Total recovery from laparoscopic salpingectomy takes three to four weeks.
