Abstract

The physiology of the fallopian tube is reviewed from the standpoints of normal and pathologic conditions. Issues addressed include the functional anatomy and pharmacology of the tube, and a report of current knowledge about ciliary function. Physiologic data concerning electrical activity, motility, contractility, and ovum and sperm transport are discussed. Anatomic and physiologic observations of two abnormal conditions, ectopic pregnancy and hydrosalpinx, are analyzed on the basis of experimental and clinical investigations gathered from the current world's literature.
