To describe the method in which fallopian tube recanalization can be safely performed laparoscopically after tube ligation with two-stitch technique. Laparoscopic reversal of the unilateral tube was performed to a 38-year-old woman who underwent unilateral salpingectomy due to ectopic pregnancy. At 3 days after surgery, tubal patency was determined via hydrotubation, and the results were satisfactory. The patient was assessed via hysterosalpingography after 2 months to confirm the patency of the anastomosed fallopian tube, and no tube obstruction was noted. The two-stitch procedure can reduce surgical time and prevent the possibility of new scar formation compared to traditional four-stitch approach.
