Salpingectomy refers to the surgical removal of a Fallopian tube. It is often related to tubal pregnancies and is a procedure that is preferred over its ovarian tube-sparing counterparts due to the high rate of recurrence in said ectopic pregnancies.
Salpingectomy is different from a salpingostomy and salpingotomy. The latter two terms are often used interchangeably and refer to creating an opening into the tube (e.g. to remove an ectopic pregnancy), but the tube itself is not removed. Technically, the creation of a new tubal opening (os) by surgery would be a salpingostomy, while the incision into the tube to remove an ectopic is a salpingotomy.
A blockage of both fallopian tubes.
Cancer that arises from the endometrium, the lining of the uterus.
A hydrosalpinx is an abnormal pouch containing liquid in a fallopian tube.
A type of cancer in which abnormal cells begin to grow in one or both of a woman's ovaries.
A distally blocked Fallopian tube filled with pus.
A condition of blocked passage through one of the Fallopian tubes.
