The ascent of infection from vagina to upper genital tract may lead to hydrosalpinx, pyosalpinx and tubo-ovarian mass.
This study again consistently demonstrates that bilateral salpingectomy increases the operative time, but only minimally, which is unlikely clinically significant, especially when considering the potential benefits from total salpingectomy (increased ovarian cancer protection, higher contraceptive efficacy, decreased ectopic pregnancy rates, reduced risk of future surgeries for such tubal pathology as hydrosalpinx, etc).
Acute inflammatory pelvic disease was suspected and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a collection in the right adnexal region, consistent with hydrosalpinx.
The differential diagnosis for adnexal mass is broad and includes follicular or corpus luteum cysts, mature teratoma, theca lutein cyst, hydrosalpinx, endometrioma, cystadenoma, pedunculated leiomyoma, luteoma, as well as malignant neoplasms of epithelial, germ cell, and sex cord-stromal origin (J Ultrasound Med.
Bilateral hydrosalpinx was present in 10% of patients and unilateral loculated spill was found in 5% of patients with primary infertility.
The most commonly encountered are ovarian cyst rupture or torsion, haemorrhage into an ovarian cyst, hydrosalpinx or pyosalpinx, endometriosis and ectopic pregnancy.
In female patients, however, a retrovesical hydatid cyst may mimic any one of the gynecological conditions, such as ovarian neoplasm or a hydrosalpinx.
A higher number of hydrosalpinx occurred within infected ASC KO UGT mice compared to infected WT mice.
Hydrosalpinx or pyosalpinx often accompany these cases.
2,3 It detects congenital tubal anomalies, tubal occlusion, salpingitis isthmica nodosum, polyps, hydrosalpinx, and peritubal disease.
During this period, 30 infertile women, with a mean age of 33 [+ or -] 5 years (range 24-41), in which a laparoscopy, performed as part of their infertility investigation, revealed a tubal abnormality (tubal fimosis, hydrosalpinx, and/or periampular or fimbrio tubal adherences) were included in this study (tubo-peritoneal infertility).
