Laparoscopic tubal sterilization by the Falope ring technique was performed on 196 patients. Sixty-four patients underwent laparoscopic tubal sterilization at the time of gestation termination. One hundred thirty-two patients underwent interval laparoscopic sterilization. The complication and failure rates in the group that had both laparoscopic tubal sterilization and gestation termination was lower than in the group that had laparoscopic tubal sterilization alone. The Falope ring sterilization technique is a safe method when combined with gestation termination, and spares the patient the inconvenience and increased hazard of 2 separate procedures.
