Selective salpingography and transvaginal catheter dilatation were performed in 157 women with infertility to diagnose, localize, and classify obstructive diseases of the fallopian tubes and to correct obstruction of the proximal (uterine-end) tube. In 61 (39%) of the patients, the selective salpingograms showed patent tubes despite the fact that two previous hysterosalpingograms showed obstruction of the proximal (uterine-end) tube. Transvaginal catheter dilatation successfully recanalized the proximal portion of the tubes in 79 (82%) of 96 patients with obstructed tubes. In 18 of 25 with successful transvaginal catheter dilatation and 6-month follow-up salpingography, the tubes remained patent. Coexisting disease of the distal (ovarian-end) tubes was diagnosed in 29 (18%) of the patients. Pregnancy was achieved in 11 of the 157 patients (six in whom obstructions were corrected by transvaginal catheter dilatation and five in whom selective salpingograms showed patent tubes). There were no complications due to the procedure. The excellent diagnostic and therapeutic yield, lack of complications, and low cost justify the use of these percutaneous techniques to investigate female infertility and to treat obstruction of the uterine end of the fallopian tube.
