Abstract

Chance observations made in 24 (0.91%) of the 2639 cases in whom tubal ligation was done by laparoscopic method in the department of obstetrics and gynaecology, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi during the last 4 years are reported and analysed. Congenital anomalies of the reproductive tract (0.30%), pelvic adhesions with or without thickened tubes due to inflammatory causes (0.49%) and other abnormalities (0.11%) were visualised. It is concluded that surgical correction of all uterine defects is not so necessary for a successful outcome of pregnancy.
