Feasibility, Safety, and Provider Perspectives of Bipolar Electrosurgical Cautery Device for (Opportunistic or Complete) Salpingectomy at the Time of Cesarean Delivery.

Am J Perinatol 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Center for Women's Reproductive Health, Birmingham, Alabama.

Objectives:  The aim of the study is to evaluate the use of a bipolar electrocautery device for complete salpingectomy at cesarean to improve procedure completion rates, operative time, and surgeon reported satisfaction as compared with standard bilateral tubal ligation (BTL) and suture-cut-tie salpingectomy.

Study Design:  This is a prospective cohort study of women undergoing planned, non-emergent cesarean with desired sterilization with complete salpingectomy utilizing a bipolar electrocautery device. Study patients were compared with historic controls from a randomized controlled trial (RCT) of complete salpingectomy via suture-cut-tie method versus BTL conducted at our institution (SCORE trial, NCT02374827).

CMAJ Open 2022 Apr-Jun;10(2):E466-E475. Epub 2022 May 31.

Division of Gynaecologic Oncology (Hanley, Kwon, Huntsman, Finlayson, McAlpine, Miller), Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, and Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (Huntsman), University of British Columbia; Vancouver Coastal Health (Finlayson), Vancouver, BC; Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (Niu, Han, Fung, Bryant, Huntsman, Earle), Toronto, Ont.; Department of Community Health Sciences (Bryant) and Department of Oncology (Bryant), University of Calgary, Calgary, Alta.

Background: Opportunistic salpingectomy (OS) is the removal of fallopian tubes during hysterectomy for benign indications or instead of tubal ligation, for the purpose of preventing ovarian cancer.

The Desire for Advanced Technology and the Reversal of Appropriateness: the Technological Competition between Laparoscopic Sterilization and Mini-laparotomy in 1960-80s South Korea.

Seungmann Park

Uisahak 2022 04;31(1):263-296

Research Fellow, Department of Humanities and Social Medicine, the Catholic University of Korea.

This article examines the technological competition between laparoscopic sterilization and mini-laparotomy from the 1960s to the 1980s in South Korea and analyzes the motives of obstetricians and gynecologists for participating in the Family Planning Program. Obstetricians and gynecologists were key actors in implementing the Program in the front line, but there is not enough research on why they became involved in the Program. Preceding studies describe the doctors as those who internalized historicism combined with population problems and devoted themselves to the cause of the state. Read More

Release of metal elements from the Essure implant: A prospective cohort study.

Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol 2022 Jun 16;273:20-25. Epub 2022 Apr 16.

Department of Gynecology, Hôpital Femme Mère Enfant, HFME, 59 boulevard Pinel, University Hospital of Lyon, 69500 Bron, France; University Claude Bernard of Lyon 1, EMR 3738 CICLY, 69000 Lyon, France. Electronic address:

Objective(s): The causal mechanistic relationships between Essure® and adverse effects are unclear, but corrosion in the in-vivo environment with release of metal ions may be suspected. Here we evaluated the concentrations of nickel (Ni), chromium (Cr) and tin (Sn) in the peritoneal fluid (PF) and in the fallopian tube (FT) during laparoscopic Essure® removal compared to a control group.

Study Design: Ni, Cr and Sn concentrations were determined in the PF and FT from two groups(group A: symptomatic patients with Essure®) vs group B (control group without Essure®) by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry analysis. Read More

Could the anatomic location of Essure® device explain the impairment of quality of life?

Minerva Obstet Gynecol 2022 Apr;74(2):123-129

Department of Gynecology, Hôpital Femme Mère Enfant - HFME, University of Lyon, Lyon, France.

Background: Since health-related quality of life (HRQL) could improve after removal of Essure (Bayer, Leverkusen, Germany) inserts in symptomatic patients, we aimed to assess whether such postoperative enhancement was linked to the anatomic placement of the device.

Methods: Correct and incorrect placed Essure (Bayer) were identified in the electronic database of the French cohort Ablimco (cohort of consenting patients with laparoscopic Essure [Bayer] removal). HRQL, pain and heavy menstrual bleeding were evaluated after Essure (Bayer) removal with validated quality of life questionnaires (Short Form12 Questionnaire, Visual Analogue Scale, French version of the McGill Pain Questionnaire and the pictorial blood assessment chart PBAC).

Interstitial Ectopic Pregnancy in a 34-Year-Old Woman After Removal of Essure Microinserts and Reversal of Hysteroscopic Sterilization.

Am J Case Rep 2022 Apr 7;23:e936182. Epub 2022 Apr 7.

Department of Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility, University of Cincinnati, College of Medicine, West Chester, OH, USA.

BACKGROUND Interstitial ectopic pregnancy, a pregnancy occurring in the part of the fallopian tube that is within the body of the uterus, poses a significant risk to patients, with a mortality rate of up to 2.5%, which is 7 times higher than for tubal ectopic pregnancies. Hysteroscopic sterilization reversal carries a potential risk of interstitial ectopic pregnancy; therefore, it is important to counsel patients appropriate and review the alternative option for in vitro fertilization.

STop OVarian CAncer (STOPOVCA) young: Protocol for a multicenter follow-up study to determine the long-term effects of opportunistic salpingectomy on age at menopause.

Maturitas 2022 May 15;159:62-68. Epub 2022 Jan 15.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Catharina Cancer Institute, Catharina Hospital, Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

Background: Opportunistic salpingectomy comprises additional bilateral salpingectomy during abdominal surgery as a prophylactic method to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer. However, opportunistic salpingectomy may potentially damage (micro)blood circulation to the ovaries, resulting in earlier onset of menopause.

Primary Objective: To evaluate the long-term effects of opportunistic salpingectomy on the onset of menopause in women who underwent sterilization through salpingectomy compared with a control group who underwent sterilization by tubal ligation or no surgery at all. Read More

Benefits and Risks of Bilateral Salpingectomy Compared With Standard Tubal Ligation During Cesarean Delivery for Permanent Postpartum Contraception.

Obstet Gynecol Surv 2022 Mar;77(3):167-173

Associate Professor, Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, NC.

Importance: Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecologic malignancy, but the most deadly female reproductive cancer in the United States. Epithelial ovarian cancer makes up approximately 90% of all cases and is responsible for more than 90% of ovarian cancer deaths. Elective salpingectomy has been shown to reduce ovarian cancer risk when performed at the time of a benign hysterectomy. Read More

Combination of Laparoscopic Salpingectomy and Endometrial Ablation: A Potentially Underused Procedure.

J Gynecol Surg 2021 Feb 10;37(1):89-91. Epub 2021 Feb 10.

Marchand Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery, Mesa, Arizona, USA.

Despite the advantages of a decreased risk of epithelial-cell ovarian cancer and the extremely minimally invasive nature of the procedure, combined salpingectomy and endometrial ablation is a potentially underused procedure in the United States to treat abnormal uterine bleeding and desired sterilization. The lack of utilization of this combined procedure might be based on factors other than clinical considerations, including slow acceptance and adoption of Committee Opinions expressing the value of salpingectomy over sterilization. Committee Opinions and randomized clinical trials have demonstrated the benefit of salpingectomy for sterilization and epithelial-cancer risk reduction, and there could be an additional protection against postablation tubal sterilization syndrome.
