The study is a non-inferiority randomized controlled trial (RCT) that aims to demonstrate that tubal ligations by minilaparotomy (ML) conducted by trained clinical officers (COs) are no less safe as compared to those conducted by assistant medical officers (AMOs) in Tanzania. Participants will be randomized in a one to one ratio to ML by a CO and ML by an AMO. In addition to the screening and enrollment/ML visit, there will be three scheduled follow-up visits at 3, 7 and 42 days post-surgery.
The primary objective is to establish whether the safety of ML provided by trained COs is not inferior to the safety of ML provided by trained AMOs, as measured by rates of major adverse events (AEs) among women undergoing ML. The primary outcome is safety, defined by the overall rate of major AEs following ML. The investigators will address the primary objective by comparing the rate of major AEs observed following MLs conducted by COs vs. AMOs during the ML procedure and through 42 days follow-up. This study will be conducted among 1,970 women 18 years of age and older presenting at study sites for ML surgery. The duration of a woman's participation in the study is expected to be 6 weeks, unless additional follow-up beyond 42 days is clinically indicated due to complications or for other reasons. The study will be conducted in Arusha Region in northern Tanzania. The following health facilities will serve as study sites: Daraja Health Centre, Karatu Hospital, Kaloleni Health Centre, Levolosi Urban Health Centre, Longido Health Centre, Monduli Hospital, and Mto wa Mbu Health Centre.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Health Services Research

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 o...
To determine the effect of tubal ligation on age at natural menopause, as a marker of long-term ovarian function.
MicroRNA (miRNA) expression proﬁles in tubal endometriosis (EM) are still poorly understood. In this study, we analyzed the differential expression of miRNAs and the related gene networks and signal...

Spontaneous; Cornual; Pregnancy; Salpingectomy; Tubal.
Inflammation of the uterine salpinx, the trumpet-shaped FALLOPIAN TUBES, usually caused by ascending infections of organisms from the lower reproductive tract. Salpingitis can lead to tubal scarring, hydrosalpinx, tubal occlusion, INFERTILITY, and ectopic pregnancy (PREGNANCY, ECTOPIC)
Procedures that render the female sterile by interrupting the flow in the FALLOPIAN TUBE. These procedures generally are surgical, and may also use chemicals or physical means.
The most common (>96%) type of ectopic pregnancy in which the extrauterine EMBRYO IMPLANTATION occurs in the FALLOPIAN TUBE, usually in the ampullary region where FERTILIZATION takes place.
A potentially life-threatening condition in which the EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN implants outside the cavity of the UTERUS. Most ectopic pregnancies (>96%) occur in the FALLOPIAN TUBES, known as TUBAL PREGNANCY. They can be in other locations, such as UTERINE CERVIX; OVARY; and abdominal cavity (PREGNANCY, ABDOMINAL).
Procedures to block or remove all or part of the genital tract for the purpose of rendering individuals sterile, incapable of reproduction. Surgical sterilization procedures are the most commonly used. There are also sterilization procedures involving chemical or physical means.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
