Laparoscopic Infertility Treatment in India
Laparoscopy is direct visualization of the peritoneal cavity, ovaries, outside of the tubes and uterus by using a laparoscopy. The laparoscopy is an instrument somewhat like a miniature telescope with a fiber optic system which brings light into the abdomen. It is about as big around as a fountain pen and twice as long.
Microlaparoscopy a new minimally invasive diagnostic surgical procedure uses telescopes and instruments that are much smaller than normal. If this procedure is appropriate for your condition, smaller incisions will be made and postoperative abdominal tenderness may be reduced.
The laparoscopy and dye test is the golden standard method to check the Fallopian tubes, particularly in high-risk patients (women with a past history of pelvic infection or abdominal surgery). Laparoscopy allows the internal organs of the abdomen and pelvis to be inspected visually and excludes other problems such as endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts and adhesions. Most infertile couples require a diagnostic laparoscopy for complete evaluation of their infertility. Among women whose tubes were found to be unobstructed using HSG, 18% were found to have tubal obstruction or peritubal adhesions using laparoscopy and a further 34% were found to have endometriosis or fibroids.
The laparoscopy procedure is usually done as a day case surgery under general anesthetic. It takes about 15-30 minutes.
When performing the laparoscopy procedure, a fine needle is inserted into the abdomen and gas (carbon dioxide) is pumped into the abdomen to push the intestine away. The laparoscope is placed safely into the abdomen thus decreasing the risk of injury to internal organs and blood vessels. A fibre-optic telescope (laparoscope) is then inserted through a small incision under the belly button; (this leaves a minute scar which is almost invisible). A powerful light is then shone down through the laparoscope. The doctor then inspects the inside of the abdomen and pelvis including the outside of the womb, the tubes and ovaries. A second incision might also be made so that a probe can be inserted in order to move pelvic organs such as the ovaries into clear view.
A colored dye (methylene blue) is then injected through the cervix. If the tubes are not blocked the dye should pass along them and spill into the abdomen.
If an abnormality is found during laparoscopy, this may be dealt with at the same time thus avoiding another operation. When performing operative laparoscopy such as opening of blocked tubes, cutting of adhesions and freeing of the tubes etc. Additional instrument such as micro-scissors and forceps are placed in the abdomen through additional cuts.
When the surgery is completed, the gas is removed and a stitch may be inserted to close the incision. After the laparoscopy procedure the patient may experience some discomfort and shoulder tip pain, this is due to the gas that was injected into the abdomen. She may also feel bloated. The discomfort usually lasts about 24-48 hours.
