salpingostomy

(săl′pĭng-gŏs′tə-mē)
n.
Surgical formation of an opening in a fallopian tube that has been closed by inflammation.

salpingostomy

[sal′ping·gos′təmē]
Etymology: Gk, salpinx + stoma, mouth
the formation of an artificial opening in a fallopian tube to restore patency in a tube whose fimbriated opening has been closed by infection or by chronic inflammation or to drain an abscess or a fluid accumulation. A prosthesis may be inserted to maintain the patency of the fallopian tube and to direct the route of the ova to assist fertilization. Postoperatively the nurse cautions the patient against sharply flexing the thighs or the knees. Low back pain or scanty or bloody urine may indicate that a ureter has been injured during the procedure, requiring surgical intervention.
