abstract

  • Thirteen domestic swine underwent laparotomy and sterilization using the Falope‐Ring®. The silastic band was applied to the isthmus in 6 swine, and to the isthmic‐ampullary junction in 7 swine. Tubal reconstruction was performed using the OPMI–6 Zeiss operating microscope. Pregnancy was observed in 5 (83%) of 6 swine following isthmic‐isthmic anastomosis, and in 5 (71%) of 7 swine following isthmic‐ampullary anastomosis. Overall, 10 (77%) of 13 swine conceived following tubal anastomosis. An advantage to the placement of the Falope‐Ring® in the isthmus of the swine oviduct could not be demonstrated by chi‐square analysis. Copyright © 1979 Wiley‐Liss, Inc., A Wiley Company
