Fallopian tube recanalization (FTR) is a therapeutic procedure performed to open an obstructed fallopian tube.
Tubal recanalization is a reversal of tubectomy by removing blocked parts and resuturing fallopian tubes to facilitate natural conception.
Bilaterally blocked tubes may be due to the previous tubectomy. Couples who are otherwise fertile and do not have time limitations or other causes of infertility may try tubal recanalization.
Success rates may vary and the possibility of ectopic pregnancy is also explained before tubal recanalization.
IVF is an alternative option for those who do not want to undergo reversal surgery.
