Described by or attributed to Italian anatomist Gabriello Fallopio.
In vitro fertilization, artificial insemination, egg transplants, surrogacy, fallopian Xeroxing—I have no interest.
Each of these cavities terminates in a fallopian tube, which opens into the capsule of an ovarium.
The Greek name for the fallopian tube is salpinx (salpinx in Greek means tube).
By far the most important of the conditions of the fallopian tubes is tubal pregnancy (or ectopic gestation).
An inflammation of the fallopian tube is therefore called salpingitis.
There is no abdominal operation more simple, rapid and safe, than simple ligature of the fallopian tubes.
But the fallopian tubes, named after Fallopius, were not his discovery.
Salpingit′ic, Salpin′gian, pertaining to a fallopian or to a Eustachian tube.
Salpingectomy is the cutting away of the whole or of a piece of the fallopian tube (corresponds to vasectomy in the male).
When the ectopic ovum begins to develop in the fallopian tube the placental villi erode the tubal wall and the blood-vessels.
