Hysteroscopy is the inspection of the uterine cavity by endoscopy with access through the cervix. It allows for the diagnosis of intrauterine pathology and serves as a method for surgical intervention (operative hysteroscopy). A diagnostic hysteroscopy may be recommended to evaluate a previous abnormal imaging study or to rule out any disease, such as in an infertility work-up.
- Removal of polyps Polyps in the uterine cavity are overgrowths of the uterine lining called the endometrium. They can be easily removed during hysteroscopy using a loop with an electric current.
- Removal of fibroids Fibroids which impinge into the uterine cavity (submucus fibroids) can be similarly removed using an electric current.
- Removal of septum A septum which divides the uterine cavity may cause difficulty in conception. It can be removed hysteroscopically without causing much pain or bleeding.
