Abstract

Congenital Ampullary Atresia of the Fallopian Tube and the Coexistence of Fimbrial Tissue

Objectives: To contribute 3 additional cases of congenital ampullary atresia to the 5 in our previously published case series. To document the constant coexistence of ipsilateral fimbrial tissue, to review the literature and to reconcile this finding with novel concepts of ovarian carcinogenesis.

Design: Case series.

Setting: Tertiary academic referral centre.

Patients: Cases of congenital ampullary atresia referred with infertility due to unilateral or bilateral ampullary obstruction over the years 2003-2012.

Keywords: Congenital ampullary atresia; Fallopian tube oviduct
