Surgery is known as a Salpingectomy for removal of one or both Falopian tubes. Falopian tubes have a path from the ovary to the cervix with an ovum.

a) Salpingectomy unilateral: one trunk of trombone is cut only.

b) Bilateral salpingectomy: cutting of both Falopian vessels.

A Salpingectomy may be undertaken for different purposes. One tube is normally cut (Unilateral Salpingectomy) if the tube is contaminated, a disease called Salpingitis. Additional reasons:

a) Ectopic pregnancy: is a situation in which, rather than inside the womb, the fertilised egg is inserted into the tube. The tube is normally recovered only after pharmaceuticals have failed to save its structure.

b) Bilateral salpingectomy is typically performed (the closure of all tubes) while ovaries and uterus are also separated. The so named salpingo-ooporectomy was where Falenopian tubes and the ovaries are all removed at the same time.


  • Depending on the type of treatment, spinal or general anaesthesia will be given. This style of treatment also uses a laparoscopic process, which results in a much smaller incision, and much shorter recovery time.
  • The surgeon makes a tiny incision under the navel under Lap-Salpingectomy. Then, in order to transfer intestines from their path, and also get a clearer view of the organ, a small hollow tube would be inserted into the abdomen and pumping into carbon dioxide gas if appropriate.
  • On the one hand, the laparoscope has a larger double channel, which enables other devices to be inserted through another narrow cut.
  • The tubing and equipment are removed after the procedure is done. The tiny incisions are sewed and the cuts are even less sewed.
