Laparoscopic Assisted Tubal Anastomosis, Reversal of Tubectomy, Ligation/sterilisation and Diagnosis and Treatment of Ectopic Pregnancy

Gynaecology Hospital in Hebbal, Bangalore

It is also known as tubal ligation, which works as permanent birth control. During this procedure, the fallopian tubes are blocked or cut to prevent pregnancy permanently. By performing this method, the egg is prevented from travelling through the fallopian tubes to the egg. The procedure is performed with the help og laparoscopy.

When is it Performed?

Sterilisation techniques include laparoscopic assisted tubal anastomosis. To permanently prevent pregnancy, this surgery is used; after the fallopian tubes are removed, it also aids in lowering the risk of ovarian cancer. Your doctor will advise you to get this treatment based on several variables.

How is it performed?

The procedure involves making an incision or inserting a needle through your belly. After that, a laparoscope is inserted into your abdomen. A second incision is also made to insert an instrument that is used to block the fallopian tubes. To know more visit our Gynae hospital in Hebbal, Bangalore.

If the procedure is carried out after vaginal childbirth, the doctor will make a small incision under the belly to access your uterus and fallopian tubes.

Reversal of Tubectomy

Tubectomy reversal is performed to allow the woman to become pregnant who has got her tubes tied. The reversal is only sometimes possible if the little tube is damaged.

How is the Procedure Performed?

During the surgical procedure, the surgeon will remove the fallopian tube's blacked area and attach it to allow the pregnancy to occur. 


Ligation or sterilisation is a procedure to prevent pregnancy. After the egg leaves, one of the ovaries moves through the fallopian tube and waits for sperm to fertilise it. Pregnancy occurs once sperm meets the egg, and the egg is implanted in the uterus after fertilisation. But sterilisation blocks your fallopian tube, and eggs cannot move through the tube. Thus it prevents pregnancy.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Ectopic Pregnancy

After getting fertilised, the egg is attached to the uterus lining. Ectopic pregnancy is caused due to the growth of fertilised eggs outside the uterus's central cavity. An ectopic pregnancy mainly occurs in a fallopian tube that carries eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. Book an appointment at our multi-specialty hospital today

Diagnosis of Ectopic Pregnancy

The diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy is carried out by blood test or ultrasound.

  • Blood Test

The doctor will recommend a blood test to confirm your pregnancy. The blood tests and profiling may be continued every few days until the ultrasound confirms the ectopic pregnancy.

  • Ultrasound

The ultrasound helps your doctor see the pregnancy's exact location. This test takes an image of your uterus to monitor everything properly.

Treatment of Ectopic Pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancy needs to be treated with care to prevent the life-threatening risk. The treatment method is based on the severity and other conditions, including medication and laparoscopic surgery.

  • Medication 

The treatment of ectopic pregnancy is possible through methotrexate at the early stage, and it prevents the growth of the cells and dissolves the existing cell. 

  • Laparoscopic Procedure

Two laparoscopic surgical procedures, salpingostomy and salpingectomy, are used to treat ectopic pregnancies. The doctor will create a small incision in the belly during this surgery to see the location.

Salpingostomy is performed by removing ectopic pregnancy and the tube left to heal on its own. Whereas in salpingectomy, both the ectopic pregnancy and the tube are removed.
