1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not often

The rate of tubal failure depends on the technique used but is roughly 1/400.
When I have a patient experience a tubal failure i recommend removing the tubes completely so that it does not happen again. The lowest rate of tubal failure is with essure in patients who do the confirmatory xray (hsg) 3 months after the procedure.
