   Hysteroscopy

What is Hysteroscopy?

This is a procedure that enables your doctor to look inside the uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding, using a special instrument called a hysteroscope. This is a thin, lighted tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. The hysteroscope transmits images of the uterus onto a screen. The difference between laparoscopy and hysteroscopy is that the former is able to view outside the uterus and the latter visualizes inside the uterus and fallopian tubes. A hysteroscopy may be done along with a laparoscopy or a dilatation and curettage. It is generally done under local, regional or general anesthesia.

Hysteroscopy is normally done after a period prior to expected time of ovulation


Diagnostic Hysteroscopy:

Hysteroscopy is done for diagnostic purposes including taking samples of tissue for a biopsy. It is also used to confirm results of other tests like hysterosalpingography, which is a dye test to check the uterus and fallopian tubes. It may also be done to find the cause of severe cramping or repeated miscarriages.


Therapeutic Hysteroscopy:

This is done to treat the condition detected during a diagnostic hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopy is done for the following:

  • Fibroid removal
  • Polyps removal
  • Septal resection is the removal of a congenital septum inside the uterus
  • Endometrial resection for abnormal bleeding, where endometrial ablation is done with a hysteroscope to destroy the endometrium
  • Cannulation for proximal tubal block
  • Removal of Copper T which cannot be removed through the cervix
  • Adhesiolysis is done for adhesions also called Asherman’s syndrome, which are bands of scar tissue inside the uterus, which can cause infertility and problems with menstrual flow

Benefits of Hysteroscopy:

  • Quicker recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less medication required after surgery
  • Avoiding open surgery or hysterectomy
