Surgery to open tube: That refers to a procedure to try to re-open a fallopian tube or tubes. It can be accomplished in several ways and is often but not always successful in opening up a previously blocked tube. Opening up a tube does not usually last long term and does not guarantee that the tube will work well.

Reopening: Fallopian tubes that are blocked can sometimes spontaneously open up. This is called recanalization.

Dr. Gerard Honore
Fertility Medicine 30 years experience
Fallopian tubes: Fallopian tubes are paired tubular structures, right and left, that connect the uterus to the pelvic cavity. The tube picks up an egg (oocyte) after ovulation at its far end and transports it down towards the uterus. If the woman had intercourse sperm swims through the uterus into the tube at the near end, when conception occurs it is in the mid-portion of the tube.
