What is fallopian tube recanalization?

Fallopian tube recanalization is a minimally invasive technique in interventional radiology that removes obstructions in the fallopian tubes, allowing for increased fertility. It entails employing catheters and wires to go through the blocked area, followed by methods like balloon dilation or stent insertion to reopen the tubes and restore their function. For women who have tubal obstructions that are causing infertility, this technique could serve as a viable alternative to surgery.

What is fallopian tube ?

Fallopian tubes are a component of the female reproductive system that connects the ovaries to the uterus. They act as channels for eggs to migrate from the ovaries to the uterus and are the location of fertilization. Each fallopian tube is coated with cilia and has smooth muscle to aid the egg migrate to the uterus.

Advantages of Recanalization:

Fallopian tube recanalization has the following benefits:

Minimally invasive: It is a less intrusive alternative to surgical procedures, which reduces the risk of infection, bleeding, and scars. 

Fertility preservation: Restoring the patency of the fallopian tubes can increase a woman’s chances of spontaneously conceiving, reducing the need for more sophisticated fertility procedures.

Short recovery period: In comparison to surgery, patients usually heal more quickly, enabling them to return to their regular activities sooner.

Outpatient operation: In many situations, fallopian tube recanalization can be completed as an outpatient procedure, eliminating the requirement for hospitalization

Cost-effective: In comparison to more intrusive surgical procedures or assisted reproductive technologies, it might be a more affordable choice

Advantages over IVF and IUI

Advantages over IVF and IUI

Preserves natural conception: FTR seeks to restore natural fertility by removing obstructions in the fallopian tubes, allowing conception to occur spontaneously, whereas IVF and IUI use assisted reproductive technology.

Lower cost: FTR may be a more affordable choice than IVF, which can be costly due to the requirement for several rounds and laboratory procedures.

Lower risk of multiple pregnancies: FTR has a lower risk of multiple pregnancies than IVF, which involves implanting numerous embryos to boost the chances of success

Shorter treatment timeframe: FTR often has a shorter treatment timetable than IVF, which may necessitate several weeks of hormonal stimulation and monitoring prior to embryo transfer

Reduced risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS): Because FTR does not entail ovarian stimulation, it lowers the risk of OHSS, a potential IVF consequence.

Avoidance of donor sperm or eggs: While FTR allows couples to conceive using their own sperm and eggs, IVF or IUI may need the use of donor sperm or eggs in some situations

What is the need for FTR?

Tubal blockage: FTR is used when one or both fallopian tubes become blocked or obstructed, preventing eggs from passing naturally from the ovaries to the uterus.

Infertility: Couples who are infertile owing to tubal issues such as prior pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or endometriosis damaging the fallopian tubes may benefit from FTR to increase their chances of conceiving.

Desire for natural conception: Couples who want to conceive naturally may select FTR over assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Prior to fertility therapies: FTR may be advised as a first-line treatment or as a preparatory step before conducting further fertility treatments such as IVF, particularly if tubal factors are discovered.

FTR is a minimally invasive procedure used to clear blockages in the fallopian tubes, restoring their patency and improving fertility

FTR is typically performed using catheters and wires guided through the reproductive tract via imaging techniques such as fluoroscopy or ultrasound. The blockage is then cleared using balloon dilation, stent placement, or other techniques.

Candidates for FTR include women with tubal blockages or obstructions causing infertility, as diagnosed through imaging tests such as an HSG (hysterosalpingogram).

FTR can treat various conditions causing tubal blockages, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), endometriosis, or previous pelvic surgeries.

Risks of FTR include infection, bleeding, perforation of the fallopian tubes, or allergic reactions to contrast dye used during the procedure. However, these risks are generally low.

The success rate of FTR varies depending on factors such as the cause and severity of the tubal blockage. Generally, success rates range from  70% to 100%, with some women achieving pregnancy within a few months after the procedure.

Coverage for FTR may vary depending on your insurance provider and policy. It's essential to check with your insurance company beforehand to determine coverage and any out-of-pocket expenses.

Recovery time after FTR is typically minimal, with most women able to resume normal activities within a day or two. However, your healthcare provider may recommend avoiding strenuous activities or sexual intercourse for a short period following the procedure.

Yes, FTR can be repeated if necessary, especially if new blockages develop or if the initial procedure was not successful in restoring tubal patency.

FTR is a more natural approach to fertility treatment, aiming to restore natural conception by clearing tubal blockages. In contrast, IVF involves fertilizing eggs in a laboratory setting and transferring embryos to the uterus.
