  • Fallopian Tube Recanilization (Lower Mainland) [English] Public

    This pamphlet provides a brief description of the medical imaging procedure fallopian tube recanalization including information on who will be performing procedure?, prior to procedure instructions, what happens during procedure?, will it hurt?, how long it will take?, risks or complications, what happens afterwards?, follow-up instructions and information on who to contact if experiencing problems. Normally, eggs produced by the ovaries, pass down fine, narrow tubes called the fallopian tubes, to reach the uterus. If either or both of these tubes are blocked, the chances of becoming pregnant are reduced. Sometimes the block is only a plug of mucus. The tube can be flushed out by passing a tiny, flexible tube, called a catheter, through the neck of the womb (uterus) and up into the fallopian tube. Recanalization is the medical term for reopening the blocked fallopian tube. (English) Colour
