The anatomy and physiology of the human fallopian tube are described and discussed; then, these facts are correlated with clinical considerations as they relate to tubal factor infertility. Anatomically the human oviduct is a tubular, seromuscular organ attached distally to the ovary and proximally to the lateral aspect of the uterine fundus. Its length averages 11-12 cm. The oviduct can be divided into 4 main segments: 1) the infundibulum, whose terminal end contains the tubal ostium; 2) the… 

Pregnancy-associated structural changes of the fallopian tube of rabbits with special reference to interstitial Cajal-like cells

TLDR
The structure of the fallopian tube showed histological changes during pregnancy that represented a functional conditioning to the pregnancy state as well as shed light on the morphology of interstitial Cajal-like cells (ICLCs) and their regional distribution.

Interleukin-8 in the human fallopian tube.

TLDR
The IL-8 system seems to be an active component of tubal physiology, and its receptors A and B localized in the tube in similar patterns and may limit the systemic effects of epithelialIL-8.

Modern view on fallopian tubes anatomy and function

TLDR
The analysis of data of medical literature related to modern state ofFallopian tubes let us detect the importance of further comprehensive study of fallopian tubes condition in normal case and pathology.

Discovery of the Fallopian Tubes and Subsequent Historical Landmarks

In the context of the reproductive system, the names of Fallopius and de Graaf are widely known to students working in this now distinctive field of physiology. However, it is historians rather than

Fallopian Tube Anatomy, Microanatomy, Microcirculation and Counter-current Exchange

TLDR
The course of the seminal duct, from its origin up to its end, resembles the shape of this classical instrument — whether the curves are existing or not — it tuba uteri.

Tubal transport of gametes and embryos: a review of physiology and pathophysiology

TLDR
This review will discuss tubal transport and its principal effectors, including ciliary motion, muscular contractility and tubal fluid, and the adverse impact of various pathological conditions, such as endometriosis, infection and smoking on tubal function and ciliary motility.

The Fallopian Tube-Peritoneal Junction: A Potential Site of Carcinogenesis

TLDR
This is the first comprehensive description of a hitherto unrecognized transitional zone in the adnexa, the tubal-peritoneal junction, that may play a role in the development of serous ovarian carcinomas and mucinous and Brenner tumors.

The paracrinology of tubal ectopic pregnancy

THE ROLE OF PROGESTERONE IN THE REGULATION OF CILIARY ACTIVITY IN THE FALLOPIAN TUBE

TLDR
It is demonstrated that mPRs are present in the ciliary cells of mouse and human fallopian tubes and that P4 can regulate ciliary activity within the fallopian tube.
