Conclusion: The readily available, easy to interpret TASCSH is not only safer and cheaper but it’s as accurate as HSG in evaluating the fallopian tubes and uterine cavity in infertile patients. We advocate its use as replacement for HSG in environment like ours where Hysteroscopy, MRI, positive contrast sonohysterography, transvaginal probes and skill are not readily available. AdemolA A.

Imaging techniques for assessment of tubal status
It is recommended by National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence as a primary investigation for tubal assessment in patients without any positive history of tubal damage and also can replace a second look laparoscopy.
Spectrum of hysterosalpingographic findings among women presenting with infertility in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital
The objective of the study was to review the hysterosalpingographic findings in women investigated for infertility in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, with tuboperitoneal pathology as the major contributor to female infertility.
Hysterosalpingographic Tubal Abnormalities in Retroviral (HIV) Positive and Negative Infertile Females.
Tubal infertility is the commonest cause of the infertility in the HIV positive individuals and theCommonest tubal pathology is hydrosalpinges as compared to distal tubal occlusion in theAIDS negative patients .


Sonohysterography for endometrial abnormalities: Preliminary results
In 39 women, polyps, myomata, synechiae, endometrial hyperplasia, and cancer were correctly described as verified at surgery and the approach for biopsy and therapy was established by this simple and welltolerated technique, here called sonohysterography.
Diagnostic accuracy of sonohysterography, hysterosalpingography and diagnostic hysteroscopy in diagnosis of arcuate, septate and bicornuate uterus
Aim:  To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of sonohysterography (SHG), hysterosalpingography (HSG) and diagnostic hysteroscopy (DH) in uterine anomaly detection and to assess the role of these various
Sonohysterographic evaluation of uterine abnormalities noted on hysterosalpingography.
Transvaginal sonohysterography was performed on 40 consecutive patients with infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss and uterine abnormalities on hysterosalpingography and was in complete agreement with hysteroscopy.
Diagnostic accuracy of sonohysterography, transvaginal sonography, and hysterosalpingography in patients with uterine cavity diseases.
Sonohysterography was in general the most accurate test in uterine cavity diseases in infertile patients, with total agreement with the gold standard for polypoid lesions and EH.
Can hysterosalpingo-contrast sonography replace hysterosalpingography in confirming tubal blockage after hysteroscopic sterilization and in the evaluation of the uterus and tubes in infertile patients?
HyCoSy is accurate in determining tubal patency and evaluating the uterine cavity, suggesting it could supplant HSG not only as the first-line diagnostic test in an infertility workup but also in confirming tubal blockage after hysteroscopic sterilization.
Transvaginal sonohysterographic evaluation of uterine malformations.
Transvaginal sonohysterography with saline solution is a low-cost, easy, and helpful examination method for uterine malformations and should be performed for the primary investigation of infertility and repeated miscarriages.
Infertility in women: combined sonohysterography and hysterosalpingography in the evaluation of the uterine cavity.
Combined performance of HSG and SHG can shorten diagnostic investigation time and reduce the discomfort to the patient as the injector is fed into the cervix only once and may also reduce the patient's anxiety level as one of the causes of infertility.

Tubal blockage and tubal factor infertility are still common among infertile couples, probably due to chronic pelvic inflammatory disease or pelvic infection following sexually transmitted infections, mismanaged pregnancies and septic abortions, as most of the patients presented with secondary infertility.
