Torsion of the fallopian tube following tubal sterilization by electrocoagulation via a laparoscope.

Abstract

Sterilization of the fallopian tube via a laparoscope is being performed with increasing frequency. A rare but serious late complication of this procedure is tubal torsion, which occurs especially after monopolar electrocoagulation where the mesosalpinx is extensively damaged. We present a case in which this complication occurred after bipolar electrocoagulation.
