What is Hysteroscopy Surgery

Hysteroscopy – it is a telescopic camera examination (endoscopic procedure) to visualise the inside of the uterus (uterine cavity). Implantation happens in uterine cavity, this procedure helps to identify if any intrauterine cause implantation failure. It is also indicated in couples with recurrent miscarriages.

What does it involve?

The procedure of hysteroscopy involves introduction of things got into the uterus history with lens fitted on it which in turn is connected to a screen. The camera is passed through the vagina, through the cervix, and into the cavity of the uterus. It can be done with or without anaesthesia.

The interior of the uterus is seen through the scope introduced. It involves inflation of the uterus with saline which in turn helps to clearly inspect interior of the uterus and its lining (Endometrium), openings of the fallopian tubes from inside and any abnormalities within the uterus.

Common abnormalities seen within the uterus are –

  • Polyps

  • Adhesions

  • Scarring/fibrous coating of the uterine cavity

  • Septum-incomplete or complete

  • Fibroids- submucosal.
