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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Was told that I have swollen fallopian tubes. What exactly does this mean. Never had an STD so how did it happen? What treatments exist for it?
Swollen or closed?: Your fallopian tubes can get "swollen" or blocked from endometriosis. Also, chlamydia, a common cause of swollen tubes does not always have symptoms.

You will need to see a fertility specialist. ...Read more
