Filshie® Tubal Ligation System Clips
Simple and reliable, the small titanium clip with soft Silastic® lining is an effective and immediate method of female sterilization. Once applied, the clip lining maintains pressure on the tube, resulting in complete tubal occlusion and eventual necrosis at the clip site. Filshie Tubal Ligation System clips can be used with any of our specially designed applicators for safe and effective procedures.
