what is a recanalization of the fallopian tubes?

2 doctor answers
Dr. Michael Traub

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.
