Filshie® Tubal Ligation System
For Superior Laparoscopic and C-Section Tubal Ligation
The Filshie Tubal Ligation System offers physicians and patients the greatest versatility in female sterilization. The system is ideal for laparoscopic sterilization, with specific applicators that are designed to be minimally invasive. For C-section sterilization the procedure is quicker and safer than the Pomeroy technique1, requiring no transection of tubes or surrounding tissue. The clip also features a large curved upper jaw to accommodate edematous fallopian tubes.
