Fallopian Tube Patency

There are different methods used to check the patency of the fallopian tubes. One option is a laparoscopy with tubal patency testing (chromopertubation). With the help of a catheter, coloured fluid is injected via the uterus into the fallopian tubes, which then passes into the free abdominal cavity, and can be observed directly with a camera during the laparoscopy. The procedure is performed under general anasthesia, but usually on an outpatient basis, which means that you can leave the clinic again on the same day. This method provides the most reliable information about the condition oft he fallopian tubes and is especially recommended for patients with previous operations or after abdominal

Es gibt verschiedene Methoden, die Durchgängigkeit der Eileiter zu prüfen. Eine Möglichkeit ist eine Bauchspiegelung mit Eileiterdurchgängigkeitsprüfung (Chromopertubation). Mit Hilfe eines Katheters wird farbige Flüssigkeit durch die Gebärmutter in die Eileiter gespritzt, die anschließend in die freie Bauchhöhle

The least invasive method (also without anasthesia) to check tubal patency is by sonography (ultrasound). Since the fallopian tubes cannot normally be visualized by sonography, a harmless solution (foam ExEm® Foam Kit) is introduced into the uterus via a small plastic catheter. This foam produces a quick and easy expansion of the fallopian tube walls, which can be seen on the ultrasound image. This examination is performed in our practice and is particularly suitable for patients without previous gynecological disease.
