2] Eustachian tuboplasty
by balloon dilation can improve the pathological state of ET via specific mechanisms to achieve functional recovery and satisfactory clinical efficacy.
Doctors at the Nairobi Women's Hospital advised her to undergo tuboplasty
, a minor surgical procedure to unblock the tubes, which would have cost them Sh100,000.
Laparoscopy prior to tuboplasty
prevented unnecessary operation in 4 of 10 patients.
The final section looks at emerging techniques such as Eustachian tuboplasty
and endoscopic ear surgery.
In the previous study carried out in 1997 at the yaounde General Hospital, Cameroon on 194 patients, the overall pregnancy rate after laparoscopic distal tuboplasty
was 27, 3% (14).
Operatively, we have utilized minilaparoscopic instrumentation for excision of endometriosis, ovarian cystectomy, adhesiolysis, enterolysis, tuboplasty
, and supracervical and total hysterectomy with or without bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
Surgical procedures associated with a significant incidence of pelvic adhesions include myomectomy, resection/vaporization of endometriosis, lysis of adhesions, tuboplasty
, ovarian cystectomy, and hysterectomy.
Surgical procedures that have been performed in patients with CSOM include adenoidectomy, tympanoplasty, mastoidectomy, sinus surgery, tympanostomy tube removal, and eustachian tuboplasty
In that prospective trial, 7 of 10 patients with intractable otitis media with effusion despite tympanostomy tubes who were treated with unilateral laser eustachian tuboplasty
had no intraoperative complications and were free of effusion 6 months later.
9) Because the scarring and blockage from tuberculosis is usually more serious than that which is secondary to an STI, women with pelvic TB are not usually candidates for tuboplasty
9) A case reported by Evans and colleagues dramatically illustrates the potential effects of these treatments: One woman's reproductive history included three cesarean sections, a tubal ligation, a tuboplasty
(after which she remained infertile), in vitro fertilization with subsequent implantation of four embryos, selective termination of two of the fetuses, revelation via ultrasound that one of the remaining twins had "severe oligohydramnios and no evidence of a bladder or kidneys," spontaneous miscarriage of the abnormal twin, and intrauterine death of the remaining fetus (291).
Suspected ectopic pregnancy or pregnancy occurring after tuboplasty
or phor ectopic gestation
