What is a hysteroscopy?

This is a procedure in which a mini camera is inserted into the uterus to examine and operate within the uterus.

What is the interest of this technique?

This minimally invasive process facilitates the diagnosis and treatment of many intrauterine problems such as:

Certain types of fibroids (benign muscle tumours of the uterus that may impair fertility and cause abnormal bleeding)
Uterine polyps (abnormal growth of the uterine lining that may impair fertility and cause abnormal bleeding)
Uterine septums that can cause miscarriages or obstetrical accidents
Synechia (abnormal adhesions of the uterine cavity internal surfaces that may impair fertility)
The remaining fragments consisting of tissue left behind after miscarriage or abortion
Hypertrophy of the endometrial lining which is a thickening of the uterus lining responsible for abnormal bleeding
The t-shaped uterus (malformation of the uterus often associated with DES or in-utero exposure and may impair fertility)

The limits of the examination and of this intervention are moderate and the benefits substantial.

What happens during a hysteroscopy?

We distinguish between the diagnostic hysteroscopy and the operative hysteroscopy.

The diagnostic hysteroscopy consists of examining the uterus by introducing a device called a hysteroscope via the vagina. As the examination is performed via the birth canal, there is no scar. To perform the hysteroscopy, it is necessary to fill the uterine cavity with a liquid to obtain a good view of the inside of the uterus. Saline is most often used.

What happens during an operative hysteroscopy?

This is a real surgical procedure that takes place within the uterus. A mini camera is always inserted into the uterus through the birth canal (vagina and cervix) and some operatory actions are performed using various small instruments.

The duration of the operative hysteroscopy is rarely more than 30 minutes. It can only be performed in an operating room under general or local-regional anaesthesia (spinal).
