Statistical methods / analysis
Data collected were reviewed, coded, and statistical analysis of collected data will done by using SPSS program (statistical package of social science; SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA) for Microsoft Windows.
A. Descriptive statistics:
Mean and standard deviation were calculated to measure central tendency and dispersion of quantitative data.
Number and percents wer calculated to describe qualitative data.
B. Analytic Statistics:
Comparing groups was done using :
Chi-square-test:for comparison of qualitative data
Student t test to determine the significance in the difference between two means
MannWhitney U test to determine the significance in the difference between two non parametric variables.
The level of significance was taken at p-value of <0.05.

Summary
Brief summary
It is possible that the deleterious effect of hydrosalpinx fluid may not be limited to direct embryotoxicity, and may, in fact, be the result of an induced inflammatory response within the endometrial cavity. By evaluating inflammatory mediators and by analyzing the number and type of infammatory cells in the endometrium of patients with hydrosalpinges, we aim to determine whether there is an endometrial contribution to the compromised reproductive outcome in those patients.
