What Does Undeveloped Fallopian Tube Mean
Aka oviduct, uterine tube, or salpinx. It is basically a small tube connecting between the ovary and the uterus. This tube carries the eggs from the ovary area to the unterus. This is the tube that is cut/tied-up/or burned in women having the tuboligation procedure for permanent birth control purpose. Have ...Read more
Clarification: You will need to get clarification on the findings. Opacification just means that the tubes were whited out. That is what one expects on an HSG. What you need to know is if they are patent (open). Contact the ordering physician and ask them to clarify the findings.
HSG: This sounds like a report from a hystosalpingogram.... They took an x-ray while they pushed dye through your tubes and they saw "localized" spillage" from the end of the tube. Not seeing the report, I would say this is a good thing, meaning that the tube is not blocked. Typically, when done to assess infertility, a blocked tube is a reason to be concerned that tube can't carry egg to uterus.
Infection: It means the tube contains infection. It may be a long term chronic infection. Or it may be an acute or immediate infection. An acute infection needs to be treated with antibiotics, sometimes requires hospitalization. Sometimes the tube must be surgically removed for a variety of reasons.
Fallopian tubes: Blocked Fallopian tubes means the egg is unable to follow the route from the ovary to the uterus, making pregnancy difficult. They may be blocked for various reasons, including infection. Ovulation should still be occurring if you are in the age of fertility. I'm not sure what non detected means. Ask your GYN. All the best.See 1 more doctor answer
My report say both Fallopian tubes are opacified in their entire extent, appears patent and normal in size... what does it means?
Normal: It means that they can see the contrast in all the right places and that your tubes are normal.
Hello good afternoon, please I got this from my wife's HSG report: Bilaterally Patent Fallopian Tubes. What does this mean please? Thanks alot. James
Normal: HSG (hysterosalpinogram), is a test to see if the Fallopian are open (patent)
Tubes are open: It means both tubes are open.Get a more detailed answer ›
Laparoscopy: The answer depends on your goals, overall health, medical history, and the reason for your surgery. Speak to your md.
No,: It usually means they are blocked or in temporary spasm, so the HSG contrast cannot get into them and they cannot be seen on xray.See 1 more doctor answer
What does it mean "the left fallopian tube is patent. However it demonstrates contained spillage of contrast"?
Tube open,: & some of the liquid (which absorbs X-rays; i.e. contrast) which exited the egg entry end of the tube remained within a limited "contained" space of the abdominal cavity instead of more diffusely spreading into a larger space. Containment implies some scar tissue around the fallopian tube preventing contrast diffusion, not optimal. Look up for hysterosalpingogram using Google & Google images.
If an ovulation test shows im ovulating that means an egg has been released into my fallopian tube already correct?
Anatomy: Bilateral means on both sides of your body. You have a left and a right fallopian tube just like you have a right and a left ovary.
Hi, good day. Please what those it mean to have a tortuous fallopian tube. Is it possible to conceive?
Tortuous: Tortuous means it has many twists and turns. Yes still possible to conceive. There is not a procedure to straighten out the tube as far as I am aware.
The xray technician mentioned one Fallopian tube was abnormal, like a hook, after a HSG, . what does this mean?
In general: A tech shouldn't comment on an unsupervised study - for exactly this reason. The patient worries and seeks information even further outside - when the responsible physician is the one who should answer the concern. As a fertility specialist for 20+ years I have personally done over 2000 HSG and there is no specific meaning to the word "hook." Do the right thing, be patient, ask your doctor.See 3 more doctor answers
What it means? FALLOPIAN TUBES SHOW PROGRESSIVE BALLOONING WITH INJECTED RESTRICTED SPILL ON THE LEFT SIDE but not spill was seen on the right side.
Interpretation: After any radiologic test it is important to meet with the doctor who ordered the test to help interpret the findings in their proper clinical context. It sounds like the left tube is open but partially obstructed and the right tube was closed. Schedule follow up to confirm the results.
No: Sexually transmitted diseases can cause scaring in the tubes which can cause them to become obstructed and fill with fluid (a hydrosalpinx). This can give the tube a cystic appearance; however, more commomly small peritubal cysts can exist and be completely normal.
