Infertility surgery :

we must distinguish :
  • microsurgery by laparotomy in order to treat lesions at the level of fallopian tubes, ovaries or in the peritoneum region.
  • laparoscopy is a type of minimally invasive surgery in which a small incision is performed in the abdominal wall through which is inserted a slender endoscope (illuminated tube with an optical system) that permits the visualization of the peritoneum region.

  • This last technique has the diagnostic interest to assess tubal and ovaries; but it can also be restorative of certain barriers that can be harmful to the encounter of the sperm with the egg in the tubal cavity or be restorative to some endometriotic lesions wich causes hypofecundidity. The IVF outcomes have enabled to better specify the applications of the laparoscopic surgery and to avoid unnecessary repeated interventions.
:
it consists in improving the quality of the ovulation and to specify the optimum time for conception. They are controlled with biological and ultrasound examinations starting a few days before the time of ovulation.
