What Hysteroscopic surgery?

Hysteroscopy is a technique used to look inside the uterus. A hysteroscope is a thin, lighted, telescope-like devise that is placed into the uterus through the vagina and cervix. It may help diagnose or treat a uterine problem.

The hysteroscope transmits the image of your uterus onto a screen. This allows your healthcare professional to see inside the uterus during your procedure.

The most common uses for hysteroscopy is to find the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding. Abnormal bleeding can mean that a woman’s periods are heavier or longer than usual or occur less or more frequently than normal. Bleeding between periods is abnormal.

In some cases, abnormal bleeding may be caused by benign growths in the uterus, such s fibroids or polyps. If they are found, then a special instrument is passed through the hysteroscope to remove them. If no growths are found, a tissue sample or biopsy is taken to detect cancer. If the sample does not reveal cancer, but the bleeding persists, then a hysteroscope with a heated instrument can stop the bleeding by destroying the lining of the uterus.

Hysteroscope is also used in the following situations:

• Removal of adhesions that may occur because of infection or past surgery.
• Diagnose the cause of repeated miscarriage when a a woman has more than two miscarriages in a row.
• Locate an IUD (intrauterine device)
• Perform sterilization in which the hysteroscope is used to place small plants into a woman’s Fallopian tubes as a permanent form of birth control.

You and your doctor will discuss your options and why a hysterocopy may be needed.
