Catheters, Intrauterine, Fallopian Tube Cannulation
Definition : Intrauterine catheters designed to eliminate (i.e., cannulation or recanalization) fallopian tube obstructions. These catheters usually consist of a 3 Fr Teflon tube; catheters tapered to 3 Fr to 2.2 Fr are sometimes used for obstructions that are more than 2 cm from the tubal ostium or for acute angles in the fallopian tube. They are introduced using several different methods, including special sets, rigid hysteroscopes, and coaxial passage through double-balloon catheters used for cervical cannulation and radiography. Fallopian tube cannulation catheters are used for treatment of infertility.
