The article provides information related to tubal surgery. Most tubal surgery uses the woman's existing oviduct tissues. The surgery may follow a previous sterilization in which case the tubes should be healthy except for those parts involved in the previous operations. Tubal surgery may be required after other operations, such as excision of an ectopic pregnancy when a variable amount of the oviduct will have been removed.
