Abstract The effectiveness of selective tubal cannulation using a simple and inexpensive tubal insemination catheter was evaluated in 23 infertile patients with cornual obstruction demonstrated by hysterosalpingography. Selective fluoroscopic tubal catheterization was accomplished in 95% of the patients with resulting tubal patency in 70% of the procedures (28 recanalizations out of 40 Fallopian tubes). Eight patients (34.8%, eight out of 23) became pregnant, six went on to full-term deliveries and two experienced spontaneous first-trimester abortions. One woman conceived twice, and delivered a singleton pregnancy after the first recanalization and a twin gestation after the second salpingography. No complications were reported, The results of this study emphasize the ease, cost effectiveness and safety of this method, encouraging its use in patients with cornual Fallopian tube obstruction either as the sole therapeutic approach or in association with other assisted conception treatment alternatives.
