The operation for tubal sterilization is commonly called "tying the tubes" or a "tubal". The fallopian tubes are the ducts that carry eggs from the ovary to the uterus (womb) and they will be blocked to prevent the sperm from fertilizing the egg.
The Laparoscopic Tubal Coagulation (LTC) is the most widely accepted operation for female sterilization. There are also have other techniques of abdominal tubal ligation. The first uses a silastic band (the Fallop-Ring) or a clip to close the tubes through the laparoscope. Another technique is the second Pomeroy tubal ligation which consists of cutting and tying the fallopian tubes through a 3 cm long mini-laparotory "bikini" incision.
A tubal coagulation cannot be reversed except with great difficulty and poor results. This procedure is considered permanent and therefore, suitable only for women who want to never be pregnant in the future.
Having a tubal ligation at the All Women's Clinic involves a consultation appointment consisting of a Pap smear, a pelvic and general examination and counseling, foIlowed by a surgical appointment. The procedure is done as an outpatient in the hospital for a flat fee.
We perform the laparoscopy technique or a minilaparotomy and use dedicated equipment designed to enhance the safety and efficacy of tubal ligation. However, because the uterus and the ovaries remain intact, a 100% perfect result cannot be guaranteed. A tubal ligation is successful in about 996 cases out of 1000.
