The authors discuss the importance of prone hysterosalpingography to the aim of a careful tubal examination. Nearly all the complete or partial tubal obstructions, observed during supine hysterosalpingography, have been resolved by the simple prone position. The high percentage (91%) of successes, without pharmacological help, recommends the routine use of this simple method in all cases of doubtful tubal obstructions.

Abstract

The authors discuss the importance of prone hysterosalpingography to the aim of a careful tubal examination. Nearly all the complete or partial tubal obstructions, observed during supine hysterosalpingography, have been resolved by the simple prone position. The high percentage (91%) of successes, without pharmacological help, recommends the routine use of this simple method in all cases of doubtful tubal obstructions.
