Comparing options for women seeking permanent contraception in high-resource countries: a protocol for a systematic review.

Syst Rev 2019 Mar 26;8(1):74. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Contraception and Abortion Research Team-Groupe - de recherche sur l'avortement et la contraception (CART-GRAC), BC Women's Hospital, Vancouver, Canada.

Background: For women seeking permanent contraception, there are a variety of options available including surgical techniques such as tubal ligation or bilateral salpingectomy, in-clinic procedures such as hysteroscopic techniques using micro-inserts, or the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine contraceptive. Despite the various methods available for women who are seeking permanent contraception, there is not a review or decision-making tool that systematically brings together outcomes related to effectiveness, tolerability, adverse effects, non-contraceptive benefits, recovery, or accessibility: all of which are important for shared decision-making between patients and health care providers.

Methods: We registered our protocol [on Prospero: CRD42016038254] following PRISMA guidelines. Read More

ACOG Committee Opinion No. 774: Opportunistic Salpingectomy as a Strategy for Epithelial Ovarian Cancer Prevention.

Authors:

Obstet Gynecol 2019 Apr;133(4):e279-e284

Opportunistic salpingectomy may offer obstetrician-gynecologists and other health care providers the opportunity to decrease the risk of ovarian cancer in their patients who are already undergoing pelvic surgery for benign disease. By performing salpingectomy when patients undergo an operation during which the fallopian tubes could be removed in addition to the primary surgical procedure (eg, hysterectomy), the risk of ovarian cancer is reduced. Although opportunistic salpingectomy offers the opportunity to significantly decrease the risk of ovarian cancer, it does not eliminate the risk of ovarian cancer entirely. Read More

ACOG Practice Bulletin No. 208 Summary: Benefits and Risks of Sterilization.

Authors:

Obstet Gynecol 2019 Mar;133(3):592-594

Female and male sterilization are both safe and effective methods of permanent contraception used by more than 220 million couples worldwide (1). Approximately 600,000 tubal occlusions and 200,000 vasectomies are performed in the United States annually (2-4). For women seeking permanent contraception, sterilization obviates the need for user-dependent contraception throughout their reproductive years and provides an excellent alternative for those with medical contraindications to reversible methods.

Cost-effectiveness of opportunistic salpingectomy vs tubal ligation at the time of cesarean delivery.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2019 Jan 28;220(1):106.e1-106.e10. Epub 2018 Aug 28.

Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC.

Background: Removal of the fallopian tubes at the time of hysterectomy or interval sterilization has become routine practice to prevent ovarian cancer. While emerging as a strategy, uptake of this procedure at the time of cesarean delivery for pregnant women seeking permanent sterilization has not been widely adopted due to perceptions of increased morbidity and operative difficulty with a lack of available data in this setting.

Objective: We sought to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis comparing strategies for long-term sterilization and ovarian cancer risk reduction at the time of cesarean delivery, including bilateral tubal ligation, opportunistic salpingectomy, and long-acting reversible contraception. Read More

Anthropology Department, University of California.

Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork among black women, medical personnel, and activists in Brazil, this article highlights the implications of hierarchical medicalization. I show that the prioritization of particular forms of medicalized contraception for women located differentially in society enables different relations, political positions, and mobility. Denial of a tubal ligation in favor of modern reversible contraceptives, in a context of inequitable distribution, can perpetuate social stratification. Read More

Desire for Sterilization Reversal Among U.S. Females: Increasing Inequalities by Educational Level.

Perspect Sex Reprod Health 2018 09 10;50(3):139-145. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Ph.D. candidate, Department of Sociology, University of California, Los Angeles.

Context: For decades, high reliance on female sterilization in the United States has been accompanied by a high level of desire for sterilization reversal, and less-educated women have been more likely than better educated women to use the method and desire a reversal. Little is known about how levels of and educational differentials in such desire have changed in recent decades.

Methods: Data from 4,147 women who reported being sterile from a tubal sterilization in the 1995, 2002 and 2006-2010 waves of the National Survey of Family Growth were analyzed using chi-square and Wald tests and binary logistic regression analyses. Read More

Imaging findings in Essure-related complications: a pictorial review.

Br J Radiol 2018 Oct 13;91(1090):20170686. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

1 Department of Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Radiology, Caen University and Medical Center , Caen , France.

Tubal sterilization with Essure inserts has become a prevalent alternative to laparoscopic sterilization because of its minimal invasiveness. It is a well-tolerated ambulatory procedure that provides reliable permanent contraception without the risks associated with laparoscopic surgery and general anesthesia. Correct positioning of the Essure device is necessary to achieve the fibrotic reaction induced by the polyethylene terephthalate fibers, subsequently resulting in tubal occlusion usually within 3 months.

Extending the safety evidence for opportunistic salpingectomy in prevention of ovarian cancer: a cohort study from British Columbia, Canada.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2018 Aug 28;219(2):172.e1-172.e8. Epub 2018 May 28.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Division of Gynaecologic Oncology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver BC, Canada.

Background: Recent evidence has suggested that the fallopian tube may often be the site of origin for the most common and lethal form of ovarian cancer. As a result, many Colleges of Obstetrics and Gynecology, including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecology, are recommending surgical removal of the fallopian tube (bilateral salpingectomy) at the time of other gynecologic surgeries (particularly hysterectomy and tubal sterilization) in women at general population risk for ovarian cancer, collectively referred to as opportunistic salpingectomy.

Objective: Previous research with the use of hospital data has indicated good perioperative safety of opportunistic salpingectomy, but no data on minor complications have been presented. Read More

Laparoscopic salpingectomy and removal of Essure hysteroscopic sterilisation device: a case series.

Eur J Contracept Reprod Health Care 2018 Jun 29;23(3):227-230. Epub 2018 May 29.

a Department of Gynaecology , Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust , Norwich , UK.

Objectives: Tubal sterilisation using Essure is a minimally invasive technique for permanent contraception, with high rates of patient satisfaction. However, some women subsequently choose removal of the inserts, due to side effects such as pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, dyspareunia or allergic dermatitis. This case series presents the management of eight women who underwent laparoscopic removal of Essure inserts in conjunction with salpingectomy. Read More

Detection of endometrial cancer cells in the fallopian tube lumen is associated with adverse prognostic factors and reduced survival.

Gynecol Oncol 2018 07 10;150(1):38-43. Epub 2018 May 10.

Division of Pathology, The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Columbus, OH, United States.

Objective: Stage is a critical determinant of prognosis and treatment for endometrial cancer (EC) patients. Women who have had a tubal ligation for sterilization have improved EC survival, secondary to lower stage at presentation, suggesting that transtubal spread may represent an important route of metastasis. We evaluated detection of intraluminal tumor cells (ILTCs) in relation to tumor characteristics and survival. Read More

Regret, shame, and denials of women's voluntary sterilization.

Authors:
Dianne Lalonde

Bioethics 2018 06 23;32(5):281-288. Epub 2018 Apr 23.

Women face extraordinary difficulty in seeking sterilization as physicians routinely deny them the procedure. Physicians defend such denials by citing the possibility of future regret, a well-studied phenomenon in women's sterilization literature. Regret is, however, a problematic emotion upon which to deny reproductive freedom as regret is neither satisfactorily defined and measured, nor is it centered in analogous cases regarding men's decision to undergo sterilization or the decision of women to undergo fertility treatment.
