Postpartum tubal sterilization. A comparative study of the Hulka clip and modified Pomeroy technique.

Abstract

To assess the feasibility of Hulka clip application for postpartum sterilization, 50 women were enrolled in a randomized, prospective study comparing modified Pomeroy tubal ligation and Hulka clip application. Hulka clip tubal occlusion in the postpartum period compared favorably with the commonly performed postpartum sterilization technique. Because of the simplicity of the technique and its greater potential reversibility, Hulka clip application may have advantages over standard postpartum sterilization techniques and should be considered for use in the postpartum period.
