Concerns exist over the effects of salpingectomy on ovarian function. This study aimed to assess the effects of salpingectomy on the serum level of anti-Müllerian hormone.
Materials and Methods
This single-blind randomized controlled trial was conducted in 2017–2018 on 86 candidates for hysterectomy. Participants were randomly allocated to undergo either hysterectomy without salpingectomy (control group) or hysterectomy with salpingectomy (intervention group). Serum anti-Müllerian hormone level was measured both before and three months after surgery. Data were analyzed through the Mann-Whitney U test, the Chi-square test, the analysis of covariance, and the linear regression analysis.
The mean value of Serum anti-Müllerian hormone level did not significantly change in the study groups (P>0.05). After removing the effects of confounders, study groups did not significantly differ from each other respecting the posttest mean value of serum anti-Müllerian hormone level (P=0.868).
