The Fallopian tube is essential for human reproduction. Transport of the spermatozoa, the egg, and later the pre-embryo is believed to be aided by muscular contractions in the wall of the Fallopian tube and cilia in the mucosa. An optimal environment in the Fallopian tube is of importance for fertilization of the egg and development of the pre-embryo. Progesterone (P) and prostaglandins (PG) are important regulators of reproductive processes. Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) is an important…

Age Related Change of Inner Diameter of Ampulla of Fallopian Tube in Bangladeshi Female Cadaver
TLDR
The purpose of the present study was to identify the inner diameter of ampulla of the fallopian tube and its changes with advancing age, and there was no significant difference between right and left fallopian tubes.
Impact of Timing on Insemination In Relationto Ovulation on the Cycle Pregnancy Rate ofIntrauterine Insemination and IntrauterineTuboperitoneal Insemination in UnexplainedInfertility
TLDR
In unexplained primary infertility IUPI had significantly higher cycle pregnancy rate than IUI, and Cycle pregnancy rate of IUI was significantly higher with postovulatory than preovulatory insemination.
In Bangladeshi Female Cadaver, the Change of Outer Diameter of the Infundibulum of Fallopian Tube in Advancing Age
TLDR
There was change in outer diameter of the infundibulum of fallopian tubes of left and right in relation to age, and the difference between all the groups were statistically significant.

Effect of mifepristone on the expression of cytokines in the human Fallopian tube.
TLDR
Changes in cytokine expression in the Fallopian tube are likely to influence embryo development, which could contribute to the contraceptive effect of mifepristone.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF THE FALLOPIAN TUBE
TLDR
Physiologic functions discussed in this article include the role of the fallopian tube in sperm transport, its part in sperm maintenance and capacitation, and the tube's function in ovum transport, fertilization, and embryo transport.
Andrology: The Effect of Human Fallopian Tube Epithelium on Human Sperm Velocity Motility and Binding
TLDR
The interaction of human spermatozoa with fallopian tube epithelial cells significantly increases spermbinding in the HZA, and significant promoting effect was observed in the ability of the sperm to bind to thezona pellucida.
The reproductive significance of human Fallopian tube cilia.
TLDR
The effects on ciliary function of cigarette smoking and various pathological states, including endometriosis and microbial infection, are described, with consideration given as to how altered ciliary activity may impact upon fertility.

Sperm transport to and survival in the human fallopian tube.
TLDR
A review is given on sperm migration to and sperm survival within the human Fallopian tube and the morphology of spermatozoa reaching the ampulla of the oviduct is mostly normal, which seems to be based on the correlation between normal morphology and good motility.

TLDR
The clinical importance of confirming this proposed role for the intra-mural segment of the tube is stressed, as is the possibility of specific micro-environments within the lumen of the duct.
