Objective To investigate the safe, effective, simple and direct method in the recanalization of fallopian tubal obstruction. Methods Fallopian tubal obstructive infertility in 37 cases were recanalized with Foley catheter under pressure infusion through DSA, including primary infertility in 17 cases and se condary infertility in 20 cases. The average infertility term was 4 years. Results In the 37 cases, 18 cases were treated once, twice in 16 cases, and thrice in 3 cases. The oviduct recanalization rate was 95%(35/37) with one failure and another unsatisfactory. After several times of recanalization in 19 cases, the pelvic cavity adhesion were reduced in 15 cases (79%), no change in 3 cases (16%), and aggravated in one case (5%). Conclusions This method is simple, cheap, safety, effective and low in X ray exposure. We insist on the pelvic cavity adhesion is still the chief cause of infertility after recanalization and still need other kind of treatment.
