Tubal infertility mainly refers to infertility caused by the lack of smoothness of the fallopian tubes. Infertility caused by tubal factors is usually caused by blocked or incomplete fallopian tubes, which leads to sperm and egg not being able to unite and ectopic pregnancy, therefore, it should be resolved through examination to confirm the diagnosis and treatment to ensure that the fallopian tubes are smooth and natural conception can take place. What role can a medium C-arm machine play in tubal blockage intervention? This article will provide some insight.
When infertility is diagnosed as being caused by blocked or incomplete fallopian tubes after a hysterosalpingogram has been performed under radiologic or imaging equipment, then the associated surgery is required. Traditional surgery for tubal blockage usually requires open surgery, which can be more traumatic for the patient and has a longer recovery time. Moreover, there may be many risks such as bleeding and infection during the surgical operation, which will affect the patient’s fertility, quality of life and even life safety. Therefore, there are two minimally invasive methods of treatment – “laparoscopic surgery” or “tubal intervention”.
Among the treatments for infertility caused by tubal factors, tubal intervention has been widely used in clinic as a treatment method with good safety, high success rate, simple operation and little trauma. Specific operation methods include: Selective salpingography (SSG), Fallopian tube recanalization (FTR), Fallopian tube embolization (FTE). Depending on the diagnosis of the results of Hysterosalpinography (HSG) and the degree of tubal patency, the appropriate treatment is chosen.
SSG is a commonly used method of checking the patency of the fallopian tubes by visualizing the morphology and patency of the tubes through contrast development.SSG is indicated for assessing the patency of the tubes and is often used as a preliminary test for infertility patients. If the tubes are visualized, the mixture is then injected under pressure, and the tubes are opened by the pushing effect of the hydrostatic pressure of the fluid. If the tubes are not visualized, FTR is performed. Under X-ray or ultrasound guidance, the doctor inserts a catheter into the fallopian tube and injects special drugs or instruments through the catheter to remove blockages, separate adhesions and unblock the tubes. If unblocking is successful, a contrast agent and mixture is then injected to visualize the patency of the tubes through HSG.
Based on the HSG diagnosis, the patient has hydrosalpinx, Fallopian tube embolization (FTE) is performed. This is an interventional procedure in which an embolus is injected with an embolic agent or embolized with a device such as a spring coil, which can effectively block blood and tissue flow in the fallopian tubes, thereby treating the hydrosalpinx. This procedure is usually performed under X-ray or ultrasound guidance, which allows for clear visualization of the fallopian tubes.
The intervention of tubal embolization as a pretreatment for hydrosalpinx is an innovative and proven method. All operations can be performed under medical imaging equipment, which makes positioning accurate and easy. Meanwhile, because it is basically a minimally invasive procedure, it has no effect on ovarian function, can effectively improve symptoms caused by tubal hydrocele, such as abdominal pain and bloating, and improve the fertility of the patient, and breaks new ground in the development of In Vitro Fertilization-Embryo Transfer (IVF-ET), with a significant increase in the pregnancy rate.
With the help of image-guided technology, doctors are able to more accurately determine the cause of the disease, perform the procedure, and increase the success rate of conception. The PLX7100A can effectively assist doctors in treating problems such as tubal blockage and improve the fertility of patients, while also controlling conditions such as tubal bleeding and avoiding the need to remove the fallopian tubes. Therefore, PUAI Flat Plate Interventional C has a wide range of application prospects in gynecological interventional therapy. In addition to tubal blockage, it can also be applied to the treatment of a variety of gynecological diseases, such as ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, uterine fibroids, uterine adenomyosis, post-partum hemorrhage, and other diseases, which can bring better therapeutic effects and health protection for the majority of patients.
