Research Grant to Fund Free Surgeries for Women Suffering From Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Date:5/20/2008

roblematic tissue and may cause new scar tissue and decrease healthy blood flow to the ovary that might affect pregnancy rates adhesions that interfere with successful embryo implantation. Laparoscopic surgeries also require general anesthesia, which poses higher risks of complications, involve up to a week of recovery, and cost an average of $6,500.

Compass Clinical Research's study will use a new procedure that does not involve any surgical incisions. The doctor inserts spring-like coils, called Essure micro-inserts, which are made from polyester fibers and metals like those used in heart valve replacements. They are inserted through the body's natural pathways (i.e., vagina, cervix, and uterus) and into the fallopian tubes. The inserts block the fallopian tubes, potentially preventing harmful fluids of the hydrosalpinx from flowing into the uterus and contacting the embryo. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, so patients have a fast recovery 92 percent of women studied so far missed one day or less of work.

Three months following the procedure a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) will be performed to confirm sealing of the tubes. This X-ray test examines the interior of the uterus, the fallopian tubes, and surrounding areas. It injects a special contrasting dye through a thin flexible tube, or catheter that is inserted through the vagina and the cervix into the uterus. Because the uterus and the fallopian tubes are connected, the contrast material then flows into the fallopian tubes. As the dye circulates, X-ray pictures are taken to determine that the has been closed or occluded. At this time, the woman may proceed with IVF (separate from the no-fee Essure micro-insert procedure.)

Participation in the study may last eighteen months. As is the case for all procedures, there are possible risks associated with Essure micro-inserts, such as the possibility that the device(s) cannot be successfully placed, a risk of uterine perforation duri
