Abstract

STUDY OBJECTIVE:

To compare tubal sterilization performed by microlaparoscopy and conventional laparoscopy.

DESIGN:

Prospective, randomized trial (Canadian Task Force classification I).

SETTING:

Gazi University School of Medicine.

PATIENTS:

Twenty women undergoing surgical sterilization.

INTERVENTION:

Ten sterilizations by conventional laparoscopy and 10 by microlaparoscopy.

MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS:

The techniques were comparable in quality of visualization, operating time, amount of drugs used for sedation and local anesthesia, and intraoperative pain scores. However, the postoperative analgesic requirement was significantly less in women treated by by microlaparoscopy.

CONCLUSION:

Tubal sterilization by microlaparoscopy does not differ greatly from conventional laparoscopic sterilization.
