Objectives: To find out the comparative evaluation of Sonosalpingography, Hysterosalpingography and Laparoscopy for determination of tubal factors in cases of primary and secondary infertility.
Method: A total of 71 patients 45 with primary infertility and 26 with secondary infertility attending our obstetrics and gynaecology department were studied from June 2015 to July 2016. All underwent Sonosalpingography, Hysterosalpingography and Laparoscopic chromopertubation. Chi square tests were used for statistical analysis to find out the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
Result: Sonosalpingography has 100% sensitivity and 80.5% specificity in comparision to laparoscopy chromopertubation whereas hysterosalpingography has sensitivity of 94.6% and specificity of 73.1%.
Conclusion: As Sonosalpingography has high sensitivity and specificity and is less invasive. It should be used initially to assess tubal patency in case of infertility. Laparoscopy is the best technique for diagnosing tubal and peritoneal disease as it allows direct visualization of all the pelvic organs.
