The Fallopian Tube honors perhaps, the most intricately structured, yet, one of the most functionally significant and competent organs of the reproductive apparatus. Serving as a bridge between the ovary and the uterus, it is structurally and functionally equipped to carry out the sequential cascade of events from egg pick-up, its peristaltic transport to the site of fertilization (the ampulla), providing the right microenvironment for fertilization - the most promising feature of human reproduction - and transport of the embryo to the uterus for implantation. Nevertheless, the Fallopian tubes are highly susceptible to infectious/inflammatory insults such as sexually transmitted diseases, infection after childbirth, miscarriage, termination of pregnancy (MTP) or IUD (intrauterine device) insertion, post-operative pelvic infection, tuberculosis, and severe endometriosis that may culminate in tubal damage and ultimately infertility. Tubal abnormalities account for between 25 percent and 50 percent of female infertility. The methodically organized sections of the book unravel every aspect of the Fallopian tube in detail from its anatomy, physiology, hormonal control, clinical methods of assessment, to the causes of tubal disease, the management and treatment of tubal and non-tubal infertility, ART options and eventually fertility control and the recent advances.The judiciously framed chapters, contributed by pioneers and authorities in the field of gynecology and infertility, surface some of the most commonly experienced dilemmas and problems while helping the clinician re-evaluate his own clinical practice with an evidence-based perspective. This comprehensive compilation reflects the remarkable scientific intellect, efforts and experience of the editors Dr. Gautam N Allahbadia, Dr. Ertan Saridogan and Prof. Ovrang Djahanbakhch and would serve as an indispensable, updated practical guide for clinicians, researchers and patients groping for the right knowledge in the field.
