Various studies demonstrated that there is no close correlation between the intratubal damage and the extent and type of pelvic adhesions. Moreover, the results of prospective studies on the prognostic value of salpingoscopy showed that the tubal mucosal status is the most important prognostic factor in terms of reproductive outcome. Salpingoscopy has modified the management of patients with tubal infertility, since the accurate evaluation of the tubal mucosa permits the selection of patients with a normal mucosa (34-42% of the patients with hydrosalpinx and 76-80% of those with periadnexal adhesions) who can benefit from tubal reconstructive surgery. In these patients the term pregnancy rate is 60% in case of hydrosalpinx and 70% in case of periadnexal adhesions.
