Tubal microsurgery

Tubal reversal microsurgery treatment at the Clínica

The technique of tubal ligation reversal is an extremely complex microsurgical procedure.

55% of women who undergo this surgery are then successful in becoming pregnant, a success rate that could be over 70% in women under 35.

The procedure consists in reconnecting the orifices in each segment of the tubes that has been cut in the tubal ligation.

In the majority of cases, the complexity of the reversal depends on how the original tubal ligation was carried out. When considering the selection criteria for carrying out a reversal operation, it is very important to note the age of the patient.

Success rates for conceiving a child are much lower in women above 40 years old.

10-15% of women who have had a tubal ligation say afterwards that they want to reverse the sterilisation procedure so that they can have children again.

In these cases, it is necessary to consult a gynaecologist who specialises in this treatment as the success of the reverse tubal ligation relies on how the success of the original procedure.

Through tubal ligation reversal, conceiving a child can once again be achieved naturally,without being limited to any treatment cycles".

  • To carry out an effective tubal ligation reversal procedure, it is first necessary that the distal part of the tubes (the fimbrial portion) is still viable after the original tubal ligation.
  • Furthermore, to avoid harmful results, it's important that a certain length of the tubes has been preserved, at least 4cm, so that it hasn't completely lost its functionality.
  • Another important factor in the selection criteria for carrying out a reversal operation is the age of the patient. This is because, when a woman is older than 40, the success rates of conceiving a child are much lower, because a woman's fertility is generally much lower.
