In brief: Occlusion vs. remove

Depending on the severity of the hydrosalpinx, the fertility specialist may want to either have it removed or blocked off (occluded where it meets the uterus).
Removal is generally recommended to avoid the risk of ectopic pregnancy and chronic pain/infection as well as fertility problems getting and staying pregnant.
