Fallopian Tube

Fallopian Tube

The Fallopian tubes, also known as oviducts, uterine tubes, and salpinges (singular salpinx) are two very fine tubes lined with ciliated epithelia, leading from the ovaries of female mammals into the uterus, via the utero-tubal junction. In non-mammalian vertebrates, the equivalent structures are the oviducts.

Famous quotes containing the words tube and/or fallopian:

    The last best hope of earth, two trillion dollars in debt, is spinning out of control, and all we can do is stare at a flickering cathode-ray tube as Ollie “answers” questions on TV while the press, resolutely irrelevant as ever, asks politicians if they have committed adultery. From V-J Day 1945 to this has been, my fellow countrymen, a perfect nightmare.
    Gore Vidal (b. 1925)

    With sighs more lunar than bronchial,
    Howbeit eluding fallopian diagnosis,
    She simpers into the tribal library and reads
    That Keats died of tuberculosis . . .
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
