TLH with Bilateral Salpingectomy - Salpingectomy With Hysterectomy May Reduce Cancer Risk

This video demonstrate TLH with Bilateral Salpingectomy - Salpingectomy With Hysterectomy by Dr R K Mishra at World Laparoscopy Hospital. During Laparoscopic Hysterectomy doing Salpingectomy may Reduce Cancer Risk. Salpingectomy refers to the surgical removal of a Fallopian tube. This procedure is now sometimes preferred over its ovarian tube-sparing counterparts due to the risk of ectopic pregnancies. During hysterectomy also we routinely perform salpingectomy. Bilateral salpingectomy at the time of ovarian-preserving hysterectomy results in no increased morbidity and is becoming more accepted by patients and surgeons as a risk-reducing strategy for both serous carcinoma and adnexal masses, new research suggests. "Emerging data that point to the fallopian tube as the site of origin for serous pelvic tumors led us and others to hypothesize that salpingectomy at the time of hysterectomy could have a real impact on the roughly 600,000 hysterectomies performed each year.
