Minimally Invasive Surgery
Salpingectomy is the removal of one or both Fallopian Tubes. Similarly to removing the uterus or any other organ, the main vessels providing blood supply to the tube are secured using a suture or diathermy and the organ is then removed.
The main reasons to perform a salpingectomy are cases of Ectopic Pregnancies or cases of tubal blockage that cause to tube became swollen and enlarged causing pain (Hydrosalpinx). Sometime the tube is removed together with the ovary when there is an indication for oophorectomy.
Again, almost every time when a salpingectomy is required, this can be done laparoscopically.
