Fallopian tube fimbria
1 Replies

Hi Dr. Jacobs,
I had a HSG in 2006 which indicated that my remaining fallopian tube is patent. No abnormalities were found during the exam.
Although the HSG indicated a patent tube, is it still possible for the inside of the tube to be abnormal? Does having a "patent tube" mean that the fimbria are still intact? Is there any other test that can tell me the condition of the inside of my tube (whether there is scarring, whether or not I have healthy fimbria, etc.)?
Thank you for your help!

There is no practicle way to evaluate the lining of the tube, without damaging it. We can use a laparoscope to evaluate the fimbriae. That is a day surgery procedure.
Good luck.
