Fallopian tube prolapse following hysterectomy is a rare but recognised complication of gynaecological surgery. The majority of prolapses occur after vaginal hysterectomy Various methods of management have been proposed in the literature. This complication was first described by Pozzi in 1902. Since then, to our knowledge, 109 cases have been reported in the English literature, of which at least 23 occurred following total abdominal hysterectomy (Pubmed search using ‘fallopian tube AND prolapse’ as keywords). We observed 2 cases of Fallopian tube prolapse afker abdominal hysterectomy between April 1996 and June 1998, bringing the total number to 111 and the number following abdominal surgery to at least 25.
