Types of Tubectomy

Blocking the fallopian tubes for Tubal sterilization can be done in several ways. The tubes can be closed by placing implants, by applying clips, clamps or rings and by cutting and tying the ends


The preferred method that is used commonly is to use a laparoscopic approach to identify the fallopian tubes on both the sides and apply plastic clips.

There are different surgical approaches for the tubal sterilization operations are

1. Laparoscopy
2. Microlaparoscopy
3. Laparotomy (concurrent with cesarean delivery)
4. Minilaparotomy
5. Hysteroscopy
6. Vaginal approaches.

The most popular is using a laparoscope; where the patient has just a couple of small scars and is discharged home the same day.

If laparoscopy is not available an open surgical operation maybe required. Here the tubes are completely divided and a section is excised.
