Gamete intrafallopian transfer in a woman with tubal occlusion. A case report.

Author information

Center for Reproductive Medicine, Milan, Italy.


Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) is usually performed when at least one fallopian tube is normally patent. We used GIFT in a case of bilateral tubal occlusion. The patient, who had primary ovarian failure, was enrolled in our GIFT program since it was assumed that her tubes were normally patent. Unexpectedly, at laparoscopy both tubes turned out to be distally occluded; nevertheless, GIFT was carried out by piercing the tubal wall. At this writing the patient had reached the 11th week of a normal intrauterine gestation and was still undergoing hormone replacement therapy.
