During a 4-year period 9,175 women were sterilized under local anaesthesia by the laparoscopic Falope-ring method. These procedures were performed in smaller towns in the Cape Province. The method used, its cost-effectiveness, and its acceptability to patients are described in detail. This venture proves convincingly that a highly sophisticated medical service can be made available to rural areas, ensuring greater support for a high-priority primary health care service.
