Fallopian Tube

The fallopian tubes (also known as the uterine tubes) are a pair of narrow long tubes that connect the ovaries to the uterus. In a human’s body, Egg cells are transferred from ovaries to the uterus through the fallopian tubes after ovulation. And the egg cell may be fertilized while in the fallopian tubes if the sperm is there after sexual intercourse. Fallopian tube contains four different segments (ecto-entad): the infundibulum with associated fimbria near the corresponding ovary, the ampullary region with a large cavity that is the fertilization place, the isthmic portion which is the contracted part of the tube linking to the uterus, and the interstitial or intramural portion that transverse the uterine musculature. The fallopian tubes bear the significant event of fertilization which is the foundation of a new life. Pathological changes in the fallopian tubes leading to infertility or other disorders. The fallopian tubes tissue is also implied in detection.
