Material and Methods: - Fluoroscopic transcervical fallopian tube catheterization was performed in two hundred and four patient with infertility in whom proximal tubal obstruction was documented by at least two hysterosalpingography procedures. Bilateral block in 147 and unilateral block was seen in 57 cases. All patients were submitted to selective salpingography, patients were followed up for six months at bimonthly interval. Results: - H.S.G revealed proximal tube obstruction in total of 264 tubes of these 258 tubes were successfully cannulated complete tubal patency was achieved in 249 cases. In 12 Cases recanalization was incomplete and hydrosalpinx was seen in 7 tubes. In six months follow up 72 out of 200 patients had pregnancy confirmed by material urine test for pregnancy and subsequent ultrasound examination. All pregnancies were intra uterine. Conclusion: - Fallopian tube catheterization is an effective procedure for infertility caused by proximal tubal obstruction.
