Although many gynecologists may utilize the vaginal approach for sterilization, little information is available regarding the indications, the technic, or the result of this procedure. The records of 161 patients sterilized by salpingectomy through the vagina were reviewed. Low morbidity and rapid convalescence were noted. No pregnancies occurred after a follow-up interval averaging 3.3 years in 95% of the patients.
