Opportunistic Salpingectomy for Permanent Sterilization at the Time of Cesarean Delivery

This study is not yet open for participant recruitment. (see Contacts and Locations)
Verified April 2017 by Mayo Clinic

Vanessa Torbenson, Mayo Clinic Identifier:
First received: April 27, 2017

Last verified: April 2017
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety of performing a bilateral tubal ligation vs. bilateral salpingectomy, two procedures performed for permanent sterilization, at the time of cesarean delivery. The investigators want to determine if performing bilateral salpingectomy at the time of cesarean delivery poses any greater risk for blood loss, as compared to a bilateral tubal ligation.

Condition Intervention
Procedure: Bilateral Salpingectomy
Procedure: Bilateral Tubal Ligation

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:
Two-arm randomized controlled trial
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Opportunistic Salpingectomy at the Time of Cesarean Delivery: A Randomized Controlled Trial of the Safety of Salpingectomy vs Tubal Ligation

Further study details as provided by Mayo Clinic:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean difference between pre and postoperative hemoglobin (g/dl) [ Time Frame: At least 24 but not greater than 48 hours after surgery ]
    Identify the mean difference in pre and postoperative hemoglobin for patients undergoing salpingectomy for sterilization vs. patients undergoing standard bilateral tubal ligation via mid-segment resection of the fallopian tube at the time of cesarean delivery.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Operative time [ Time Frame: Day of surgery ]
    Compare mean difference in length of operative time (in minutes) to perform bilateral salpingectomy as compared to standard bilateral tubal ligation, following cesarean delivery.

  • Estimated blood loss [ Time Frame: Day of surgery ]
    Identify mean difference in estimated total blood loss as a result of standard bilateral tubal ligation surgical procedure and bilateral salpingectomy procedure, following cesarean delivery.

Estimated Enrollment: 120
Anticipated Study Start Date: June 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Salpingectomy
Bilateral salpingectomy following cesarean delivery
Procedure: Bilateral Salpingectomy
Surgical removal of entire fallopian tubes
Active Comparator: Tubal Ligation
Bilateral tubal ligation following cesarean delivery via Parkland or modified Pomeroy methods.
Procedure: Bilateral Tubal Ligation
Surgical tying, cutting, or removal of a portion of the fallopian tubes

Detailed Description:
A non-inferiority, two-arm randomized controlled trial to evaluate the safety and feasibility of prophylactic salpingectomy at the time of a cesarean delivery will be conducted as an initiative to avoid a missed opportunity in the primary prevention of ovarian cancer. Once enrolled and consented, women will be randomized using a stratified block randomization algorithm according to number of prior cesarean deliveries and BMI to either salpingectomy or bilateral tubal ligation. The data collection will include preoperative CBC, time of procedure, postoperative CBC at 24 hours, standard patient demographics, procedural complications, estimated blood loss, return to the OR, length of stay, pain scores, and postoperative complications, including readmission within 6 weeks.
