AbstractBackground: The uterine tubes, also called as oviducts or fallopian tubes, lie in the mesosalpinx in the upper free edges of the broad ligaments of uterus. These paired structures measure 8-14 cm in length and approximately 1-5 mm in diameter, which is variable along the length of the tube.
Material and methods: Samples of uterine tubes were collected from 50 Patients. 27 samples were collected from patients belonging to pre-menopausal age group and 23 samples were collected from the women of post-menopausal age group. Samples of uterine tubes for study were collected from premenopausal and postmenopausal women attending the department of obstetrics and gynaecology, PMCH, Patna during the period extending from the year 2015 to 2017.
Conclusion: The lumen of the tube gradually widened towards the fimbriated end and the wall of the tube thickened progressively towards the uterus. The blood vessels in the muscularis were present in all the four parts of the tube. These were found abundantly in the isthmic and the intramural regions. These were moderately found in the region of the ampulla but in the infundibular region they were comparatively bigger taking into consideration the thin wall of the muscularis.
