What Is Bilateral Patent Tubes
Tubes are open : It means both tubes are open.Get a more detailed answer ›
Normal finding.: "Bilateral" = both sides (right & left). "Patent" = open. The "fallopian tubes" are the tubes leading from the uterus to the ovary, i.e. the tube where eggs travel down in order to implant in the womb. Having fallopian tubes open on both sides is a normal finding; unlike a blockage on one side (where the chances of conception go down by at least 50%), both sides being open is considered "normal". ...Read more

Bth fallopian tube shw mild dilatation of d distal 3rd due 2 fimbrail adhesions with forced peritoneal spillage in keeping with bilateral patent tubes?
Unlikely to happen: Tubal function is more complex than simple blockage. The delicate membranes need to permit passage of the egg without trapping it in an area that could result in a life threatening tubal pregnancy. If you have a scarred but open remaining tube, pregnancy might be possible through assisted reproduction. Harvesting your eggs & creating embryos that can be inserted in your womb at a fertility center. ...Read more
Sometimes, consider: Depends on alot of factors, mainly where is the tube blocked and why is it blocked. Proximal/near blocks are often amenable to opening by tubal cannulation. Blocks anywhere due to inflammation or infection may be less succesful. Also, women likely to have trouble conceiving anyway might not be helped much with surgery. ...Read more
I've seen it work: I perform hsg's on all of my own patients, and have been doing so (with water based contrast) for over 20 yrs. Many of my patients conceived right after the hsg was done! ...Read more
I was diagnosed with bilateral hydrosalphinges, last month I had both tubes remove, its 4weeks since the op and im still bleeding, is this normal?
Ovaries removed too?: Were the ovaries also removed? If not, there are blood vessels that connect the Fallopian tubes and ovaries to the uterus that may be a source of your bleeding due to their interruption at surgery. Discuss this with your previous surgeon as there may also be other sources causing your bleeding that only he/she will know. ...Read more

More than 5 weeks after ectopic, one tube removed, the other tube checked patency, still have pain on both sides occasionally, is it normal? When to try to conceive again?
In theory, but...: Theoretically yes, hsg could flush tubes open. In practice this might happen more often than we're aware. But, hsg has not been shown to change pregnancy rates consistently, so it should be considered a test and not a treatment. A few small studies suggested possible small improvements in pregnancy following hsg, but these have not been confirmed by larger better studies. ...Read more

It's generally difficult to clear out blocked fallopian tubes because the blockage often comes from previous infection like chlamydia or from abdominal surgery.
There are some infertility doctors that can use a small camera in the uterus called a hysteroscope and open the tubes that way, but it's still difficult. I recommend that you talk to an infertility expert. ...Read more
HSG: There is an x-ray study called hystero-salpingogram (hsg) that's usually done for this purpose. It is basically an office pelvic exam with some x-ray pictures taken, and it's quite reliabel for testing tubes. Caution: there is alot of bad press on hsg on some message boards, please read with a grain of salt. I've done over 2000 of them myself with never a bad outcome. ...Read more

Can I do (AI) Artificial Insemmination with the left tube partially open and the right tube closed? What is the probability to conceive?
Individual cases: This is a very specific question where the answer is going to be unique for each individual. You will need to see a fertility specialist who can evaluate the HSG X-ray that showed your fallopian tubes. They will need to determine if they feel there is enough patency in the left tube to permit the sperm and egg to reach each other for fertilization. ...Read more

The main symptom is muffled or dulled hearing. You may also have ear pain because the eardrum is tensed and stretched. Other symptoms that may also develop include a feeling of fullness in the ear, ringing or buzzing in the ear (tinnitus) and dizziness. One or both ears may be affected.
See ENT doc to manage this problem. ...Read more
Additional screening: A positive initial screening test should be followed by a more involved and dependable test looking for this possibility. A diagnostic high resolution ultrasound can be performed that can evaluate baby from top to bottom and see if there is any direct evidence of a problem. Discussion of these findings with a geneticist or perinatologist may then be needed if the problem is not excluded by the test. ...Read more
Am ttc, in HSG test both the tubes are open but dr suggest me for laproscopy. Is it possible that in laproscopy found that the tubes are block?
Bilateral hydrosalpinx, right tube blocked, left tube wt small restriction spill at the end. The Dr told me left tube can be treated. My question is HOW?
What does it mean "the left fallopian tube is patent. However, it demonstrates contained spillage of contrast"?
Tube open, : & some 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
Does HSG provide information on tube patency that laparoscopy does not tell? If laparoscopy says tube is open, is there need to check HSG for potential subtle blockage? HSG has Any side effect?
Laparoscopy Maybe: The only way to see if your tubes are open is to do some sort of dye test. You can either do a dye test with HSG or with a laparoscopy (LSC). With HSG a dye is squirted through your tubes and if they're open then you see dye flow on X-Ray. With LSC a special procedure called a chromopertubation is performed to see if dye goes through. You can only be sure if this specific procedure was done. ...Read more
