Pre-operative Preparations

Pre-operative Preparations include counseling and measures to improve the outcome of surgery


1. Informed consent-written consent is obtained from the patient prior to performing the surgery

2. In Preoperative counseling the patient needs to be informed that the procedure of Tubal sterilization is permanent and irreversible and that a small chance of failure exists. The relative likelihood of an ectopic pregnancy is increased when sterilization failure occurs

3. It can be done as day-surgery or may require an overnight stay in the hospital

4. It is recommended that the patient take nothing by mouth (food, water, etc.) for at least 6 hours before the scheduled operation or after midnight if the operation is planned in the morning

5. Painkillers and antibiotics may be prescribed before the procedure

6. A sedative maybe useful to relieve the anxiety of surgery

7. The Abdomen and genital area may be shaved and prepared for the surgery

8. Before surgery or during the previous night a bath maybe advisable. During the bath thorough cleaning of the abdomen and genital area with soap and water a few times can help in lowering the bacterial count and lessen the chances of any infection from surgery

9. An enema maybe administered to the patient prior to performing the surgery. Sometimes a laxative maybe given to clear the bowels prior to the surgery
