Laparoscopic Application of PGE2 for Treatment of Blocked Oviducts
In recent years the condition of blocked oviducts has been recognized a cause of infertility in the mare. Oviducts are thin tubes leading from the ovaries to the uterus and are the place were fertilization of the egg by sperm from the stallion takes place.
The oviducts of mares can become blocked by debris from previous ovulations or pregnancies. Blockage can lead to otherwise unexplained infertility. Mares can repeatedly fail to become pregnant to fertile stallions despite displaying no obvious abnormalities on veterinary examination.
