1.1 Current evidence on the safety and efficacy of falloposcopy with coaxial catheter does not appear adequate for this procedure to be used without special arrangements for consent and for audit or research.
1.2 Clinicians wishing to undertake falloposcopy with coaxial catheter should take the following actions.
Inform the clinical governance leads in their Trusts.
Ensure that patients understand the uncertainty about the procedure's safety
and efficacy and provide them with clear written information. Use of the Institute's information for the public is recommended.
Audit and review clinical outcomes of all patients having falloposcopy with coaxial catheter.
1.3 Publication of safety and efficacy outcomes will be useful in reducing the current uncertainty. The Institute may review the procedure upon publication of further evidence.
