Minilaparotomy for Female Sterilization

Minilaparotomy played a major role in transforming female sterilization into a quick, highly effective, safe outpatient procedure that can and should be performed under local anesthesia. The number of women protected from pregnancy by contraceptive sterilization has doubled since the 1970s, when the minilaparotomy technique was developed.

Minilaparotomy for Female Sterilization: An Illustrated Guide for Service Providers is an easy-to-use reference for providers interested in learning about minilaparotomy. It presents a detailed description of the procedure and also illustrates the step-by-step surgical technique to follow in performing a suprapubic or subumbilical minilaparotomy under local anesthesia, with or without sedation. In addition, the guide reviews basic requirements that are essential to ensure the safety and effectiveness of any female sterilization procedure. Experienced providers of female sterilization who want to change from other surgical techniques to minilaparotomy, providers who have never performed female sterilization services and who want to begin to do so using minilaparotomy, and trainers and trainees will all find this illustrated guide to be useful.
