Did You Know the Hydrosalpinx Causes?

Door Bonnie Colinton gepubliceerd op Tuesday 06 September 09:54

A hydrosalpinx is a descriptive term and refers to a fluid filled dilatation of the fallopian tube. The condition can be bilateral or uniateral, and the affected tubes may reach several centimeters in diameter. The blocked tube causes infertility, while incomplete blockage or adhesions often lead to tubal pregnancy.

Hydrosalpinx causes

The major cause of this condition is pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or chronic salpingitis (the inflammation of fallopian tubes), which can be triggered by the infection of chlamydia or gonorrhea. Fortunately, not all pelvic infections will cause the malfunction or pathological changes of fallopian tubes.

IUDs, endometriosis, and abdominal surgery sometimes are associated with this problem. As a reaction to injury, the body rushes inflammatory cells into the area, and inflammation and later healing result in loss of the fimbria and closure of the tube. These infections usually affect both fallopian tubes, and although a hydrosalpinx can be one-sided, the other tube on the opposite side is often abnormal. By the time it is detected, the tubal fluid usually is sterile, and does not contain an active infection.
