Background: Laparoscopic surgery for fallopian tubal occlusion (LSFFTO) could be an alternative method for tubal factor infertility. Here, we conducted this study to identify the factors associated with the success rate of LSFFTO in Vietnamese infertile women.
Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted on infertile women (n=50). These patients were infertile due to distal tubal occlusions, and diagnosed via laparoscopic surgery (LS) with methylene blue administration. Both fallopian tubes (FT) were repaired and opened after LS. We used a self-developed tool to collect information from study subjects. The binary logistic regression method was used to find the associated factors with surgery outcome each side and both sides.
Results: Among 50 infertile women in the study, the percentage of opening status for FT was quite similar in both sides, 48% in left tube and 50% in right one. There were three factors associated with surgery outcomes in each side including secondary infertility, did not have tubal occlusion before LS, having history of miscarriage (induced abortions). For both tubes, there were 2 factors associated with the surgery outcomes: being no fallopian tubal occlusions before LS and having adhesions at the proximal part of Fallopian tube during the LS.
Conclusion: Our findings had highlighted the evidence of associated factors which affected LS in each side and both sides of fallopian tubes among Vietnamese infertile women.
