A study out of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center looked at the success of pregnancy after salpingectomy or salpingotomy. Salpingectomy removes the fallopian tube and salpingotomy opens the tube. They found that with women who had a healthy tube opposite the side with a tubal pregnancy salpingotomy doesn't show any significant improved benefit.

Sustained pregnancy after salpingotomy is about 61% but after salpingectomy it was 56%. This is good news because removing the tube is a quicker, less invasive procedure.
