Fimbrioscopy and salpingoscopy were performed with a rigid salpingoscope during operative laparoscopy in 100 patients with minimal to moderate endometriosis and in 20 normal controls. Five women with endometriosis had perifimbrial adhesions, compared with none of the controls. No subject in either group had adhesion formation of the endosalpinx. These observations indicate that there is no association between endometriosis and intratubal disease.
