Conventional surgical laparotomies often cause peritubal and perifimbrial adhesions, preserving the tubal mucosal integrity, and so laparoscopic adhesiolysis could successfully improve fecundability in 50% of cases, depending on the severity of tubal damage, associated abnormalities, techniques of laparoscopic surgery, and surgeons' experience [6, 9, 11, 14].
