About the Authors
  • The Fallopian tube has until recently been a neglected structure, bypassed by IVF and seen only as a tube that transports the egg to the uterus. More recently, its central role as the site of fertilization and early embryogenesis has been recognized, along with the major effects of tubal disease, such as chlamydia trachomatis, on fertility. Tubal surgery is an option for those women who avoid IVF because of anxiety about medication side-effects or for religious reasons. The tube is also the site for female sterilization and its reversal. This definitive guide to the Fallopian tube and its disorders collates all these topics, with authoritative text covering the spectrum of clinically relevant topics in a digestible fashion. It will be of interest to gynecologists, specialists in reproductive medicine and infertility and family planning, and others with interest in this fascinating and underestimated organ of reproduction.

    • Will appeal to gynecologists, family planners and specialists in reproductive medicine
    • Examines basis of tubal disorders and female sterilization, offering practical guidance on clinical management
    • Leading authors highlight new alternatives to IVF treatment for tubal infertility

    "It is a definitive guide to all things fallopian tube. Given the prevalence of tubal factor infertility worldwide, it is imperative that healthcare providers have a better understanding of how certain infections mediate tubal infertility. The book also presents information about tubal surgery and pregnancy outcomes in those patients that are not candidates for in vitro fertilization....Overall, this is a worthy addition to the gynecology and infertility literature as it focuses on the role of the fallopian tube in infertility, a topic that often gets abridged in other textbooks."
