Abstract

A WHO survey in 1992 estimated that about 100 million women rely on permanent sterilization as a form of contraception. A 1995 survey of several thousand US women found that the most popular contraceptive methods for a couple were female surgical sterilization (28%) and oral contraceptives (27%). Transcervical sterilization was initially attempted in the 19th century and a variety of techniques have been assessed in an attempt to provide an alternative to traditional sterilization methods. Laparoscopic sterilization is an invasive abdominal procedure associated with recognized complications. A prospective study of the complications of diagnostic laparoscopy by Kane and Krejs revealed rates of 5.1% for minor complications and 2.3% for major complications requiring surgery or transfusion.
