Use of Adiana Tubal Occlusive Devices in Women With Hydrosalpinx Prior to In Vitro Fertilization

The recruitment status of this study is unknown. The completion date has passed and the status has not been verified in more than two years.

A condition called hydrosalpinx occurs when one or both of the fallopian tubes is blocked with fluid. The fluid can leak into the tube and the uterus. The theory is that the fluid can harm the tubes and uterus making implantation more difficult or harm the embryo.

Condition Intervention Phase
Women Suffering From Unilateral or Bilateral Tubal Occlusion Due to Hydrosalpinx Device: Adiana placement Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the success rate of proximal tubal occlusion with Adiana inserts in women with hydrosalpinx [ Time Frame: 1 Year ]
    Analysis of results will be performed on the intent-to-treat population defined as all subjects in whom device placement was attempted and on the per protocol population defined as all subjects who had successful placement of the Adiana occlusion device and were followed for a minimum of one year post HSG confirmation test.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Observe implantation and clinical pregnancy rates post IVF [ Time Frame: 1Year ]
    Factors affecting the placement rate, tubal occlusion rate, and clinical pregnancy rate will be reviewed. This study employs an unblended, non randomized, single group design, in which subjects serve as their own controls. Because this feasibility study will enroll a maximum of ten (10) subjects, it is not designed with success/failure benchmarks, nor is it statistically powered to make any claims regarding effectiveness of hysteroscopic proximal tubal occlusion in women with hydrosalpinx who are planning to undergo IVF.

Estimated Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: October 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
