Hysteroscopy Treatment

A woman's reproductive system is very complex and delicate at the same time. Some women develop problems in their reproductive system and some may face infertility issues. Years ago, it was difficult to identify the exact problem that was affecting the reproductive system of a woman. Now, due to technological advancements, new procedures are implemented to diagnose and treat complex problems. One such procedure is hysteroscopy.

Hysteroscopy is used to examine women's reproductive system and the procedure is done with the help of a visualization instrument which is inserted through the vagina and cervix. Hysteroscopy provides a closer look at the women's pelvic structure and can provide information regarding infertility and gynaecological disorders. Hysteroscopy can be carried out either to diagnose or to treat the condition.

Hysteroscopy is a gold standard procedure for diagnosing and treating several reproductive anomalies. At Rashmi Hospital, our specialist uses the hysteroscopy procedure to treat various gynaecological conditions. The gynaecological conditions which are diagnosed and treated using hysteroscopy are as follows:

  • Diagnostic hysteroscopy in infertility- Hysteroscopy is an important diagnostic and therapeutic modality in infertility. The diagnostic hysteroscopy procedure allows the doctor to see inside the uterine cavity clearly and to identify the issues of infertility. 
  • Hysteroscopic polypectomy- It is a procedure to remove polyps in the uterus. A hysteroscope is inserted into the uterus through vagina and cervix. If polyps are found, it is removed with hysteroscopy and is sent to the lab for further examination (to check whether it is benign or malign). 
  • Hysteroscopic myomectomy- It is a procedure of removing fibroids without removing the healthy tissues of the uterus. The procedure is considered best for removing fibroids by preserving the uterus. Traditionally, myomectomy is done through a large abdominal incision but later the advancements in surgical techniques have enabled to remove fibroids through the vagina.

  • Hysteroscopic Tubal Cannulation- If a woman faces issues while getting pregnant due to the blockage in the fallopian tubes, tubal cannulation is considered. Hysteroscopic tubal cannulation is used to identify and open the blockage in the fallopian tubes. 

  • Adhesiolysis- The presence of adhesions inside the cervical canal and the uterine cavity is known when it is checked for infertility or recurrent miscarriage. The adhesions can be caused by trauma to the endometrium. Hysteroscopy helps in diagnosing and treating adhesions accurately. 

  • Septum Resection- Hysteroscopic septum resection is considered for women with septate uterus. A septate uterus is an abnormality in the uterus which happens during fetal development before birth. Women with the septate uterus are at an increased risk of miscarriage. This can be corrected by hysteroscopy without making an abdominal incision. 
  • Endometrial Resection- Endometrial resection is considered if a woman bleeds heavily during or in between menstrual cycles or have periods lasting for a longer than usual time frame. If medications cannot control bleeding, then endometrial resection is suggested. 
  • Removal of lost IUD-  IUCD (intrauterine device) is an instrument inserted into a woman's uterus for birth control. Sometimes, this device needs to be removed for one or the other reason. For the removal of IUD attached in the uterine wall, the hysteroscopy procedure is carried out.
