40% to 85%.: But it depends on several factors: the best candidates for tubal reversal are women younger than age 40 who had sterilization surgery immediately following childbirth. Have you considered adopting? Probably cheaper, and the success rate is 100%! and you would be doing a good thing. A very good thing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tough one!: There is an ileorectal anastomosis - when the colon is removed we can attach the ileum - part of the end of the small intestine - to the rectum. There is also an ileosigmoid anastomosis - when the ileum is attached to the sigmoid colon. Often the area is called the rectosigmoid region so this leads to the confusion. There is no ileorectal sigmoid anastomosis. ...Read more
Not always: The success of a stoma reversal depends on many factors including the original reason for the stoma, the overall condition of the patient and the amount of bowel remaining. Often a temporary stoma is constructed for diverticulitis. In this situation, reversal is often successful assuming a healthy remaining rectum. Each case should be looked at individually for the pros and cons of reversal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sterilization : The tubes are ducts that extend from near the ovary and go into the uterus. The egg moves don the tube and get fertilized in the lower 1/3 of the tube. Ligation is the slicing of the tube often the tube is coagulated and clipped as well. By interrupting this tube the path of the egg to the uterus is blocked making pregnancy improbable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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. ...Read more
Remote surgery: Bypass surgery done through tubes or scopes in which the surgery operates by sitting at a console and operates the scopes or tubes remotely. Much less invasive in that the cutting of the sternum or breastbone is not needed. The disadvantage is that it cannot reached all areas of blockage in some patients. ...Read more
Can a Selective Tubal Cannalization or Fallopian Tubal Recanalization be done rather than having a Tubal Reversal done?
Maybe , maybe not: U can do a laparoscopic sterilization by cautery or clips or other ways, either way is old fashioned, the newer safer way that I do 99.9% of all my sterilizations on my patients is in office - adiana( for about another month, until i run out of catheters) or in office essure- both are easy, my pts stay awake , takes 5 minutes, no cutting, only miss 1/2 day of work, u can read about it online. ...Read more

Many possibilities: Many things can cause a leak--poor blood supply, too much tension on the anastomosis, poor nutrition, use of immunosuppresants such as steroids, infection, distal obstruction, etc. A recent large study from Germany showed a leak occurs in around 10% of cases. Sometimes it's treated with bowel rest and drainage of the fluid, sometimes it requires another operation. ...Read more
Tubal vs essure: They both provide permanent sterilization but the tubal requires general anesthesia and surgery into the abdomen with incisions that have to heal. It is immediately effective. An essure can be done in the office under a local cervical block and has no incisions. It takes about 3 months to become effective. You have to do a simple test at 3 months to prove the tubes are blocked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Easily: Sometimes the fallopian tube is clogged with natural secretions that have become thickened, preventing conception. Fallopian tube recanalization is an attempt to either flush these away or push them out of the way. This reopens the tube and restores the potential for conception. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
