Abstract

A total of 43 patients who had undergone laparoscopic tubal occlusion by means of bipolar cauterization underwent bilateral salpingectomy 6-30 months later. The macroscopic and microscopic changes in the fallopian tubes are described. Although 35 patients appeared to have occluded tubes on macroscopic examination, only 22 showed occlusion on microscopic examination.
