In brief: Reopening
Fallopian tubes that are blocked can sometimes spontaneously open up.
This is called recanalization.

In brief: Surgery to open tube
That refers to a procedure to try to re-open a fallopian tube or tubes.
It can be accomplished in several ways and is often but not always successful in opening up a previously blocked tube. Opening up a tube does not usually last long term and does not guarantee that the tube will work well.
