Sterilizing clip applicator, London, England, 1979-1981

Sterilisation involves cutting or blocking the Fallopian tubes. These tubes transport the sperm or eggs. This stainless steel applicator is used to attach clips to the Fallopian tubes. This is done in conjunction with a laparoscope. It allows the surgeon to operate through a small incision. This relatively minor surgical procedure has become routine. Sterilisation can also be done chemically.
