Dilators, Surgical, Fallopian Tube, Microsurgery
Definition : Surgical dilators designed for mechanically augmenting the diameter of the internal lumen of the fallopian tubes during surgery. Fallopian tube dilators vary according to the surgical procedure to be performed; they are usually solid, handheld dilators with a very thin tapered blunt distal tip, either straight or angled that is attached to a solid handle with a larger diameter to facilitate placement. They are used in a variety of gynecologic and obstetric procedures, including occlusion of the Fallopian tubes and in-vitro fertilization.
