Sometimes yes!: It depends on the patient and the reason the tube(s) is (are) blocked. Tubal cannulation under fluoroscopy and by hysteroscopy have both been studied extensively since the early 1990s (it was actually first done with a whale bone in the 1890s!) the most important consideration is whether the woman is a appropriate candidate for the procedure.
