Tubal factor infertility may be reversed using porcine small-intestinal submucosa (SIS). The method uses as a model the New Zealand White rabbit uerine horn. In surgery, SIS grafts were prepared from porcine jejunum; the uterine horn segment was resected and a graft was placed; then the contralateral adnexa was resected. Fecundability was tested with natural mating. Three out of six rabbits became pregnant. Gross and microscopic examination confirmed regeneration of all tissue layers. Thus… CONTINUE READING
