Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Reproductive surgery involves surgery in the field of reproductive medicine. Reproductive surgeons consist of gynecologists and urologists who specialize in reproductive surgery and are experts in the conservative treatment of reproductive organs in both men and women. Reproductive surgery includes a wide range of operations designed for different purposes. Most operations are carried out to restore normal uterus, tubes, and ovaries. This Special Issue, entitled ‘Update on Reproductive Surgery’ will present studies in the fields related to reproductive surgery. We are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on the potential value and impact of reproductive surgery with original contributions and review articles focusing on recent and related advances in the field, including the latest trends and future developments.

Prof. Dr. Simone Ferrero
Guest Editor

Our objective is to define a standard protocol for post-partum salpingectomy and provide a prospective assessment of safety and feasibility of such a procedure. Thus, a protocol for performing post-partum salpingectomy in limited-resource environments was created based on contemporary practices for tubal ligation. Gravidae presenting for post-partum tubal ligation following vaginal delivery or at time of cesarean were prospectively approached and, if consent was obtained, enrolled. Outcomes were compared to a historical cohort of gravidae who underwent standard post-partum tubal ligation following vaginal birth or at the time of cesarean as per institutional standard of care. The primary outcome was operative time. One hundred and fifty-seven subjects underwent post-partum salpingectomy following cesarean or vaginal delivery (on post-partum days 0–2). Post-partum salpingectomy performed after vaginal delivery (n = 97) resulted in slightly longer operative times (39.1 ± 11.8 vs. 34.3 ± 13.1 min, p = 0.003) and slightly greater blood loss (21.0 ± 22.0 vs. 13.4 ± 17.3 mL, p = 0.001) than modified Pomeroy tubal ligation (n = 200). Post-partum salpingectomy at cesarean resulted in no difference in estimated blood loss, but slightly longer operative times compared to Parkland tubal ligations (99.5 ± 47.3 vs. 86.5 ± 33.9 min, p = 0.048). Surgical complications for post-partum salpingectomy were similar to controls, regardless of when the procedure was performed. In conclusion, a standardized protocol created for post-partum salpingectomy using suture ligation is feasible and safe. Full article
