Success Rate of Hysteroscopy Treatments

Hysteroscopy is examination and operative treatment of uterus with the help of a hysteroscope. The hysteroscope is a tube like device which is inserted inside the vagina to take a look at the uterus and related structures.
The hysteroscope is inserted inside the vagina to check for any unexplained bleeding in postmenopausal women, heavy bleeding in reproductive age or any other abnormality such as pelvic pain etc. Diagnostic hysteroscopy is also performed to confirm the findings reported on other tests such as HSG x-ray etc. Sometimes, hysteroscopy is performed along with dilatation and curettage (D & C) etc.
If any abnormality is found during the diagnostic hysteroscopy, then the operative hysteroscopy is performed at the same time in most cases. This avoids the need of another operation.
Operative Hysteroscopy can treat the following diseases –
- To remove the fibroids or polyps in the uterus. The fibroids and polyps are the benign (non-cancerous) growths which develop inside the uterus. They create symptoms like excessive bleeding during menstruation, low back pain, pain while urination, infertility etc.
- To remove the adhesions present in the uterus that cause problems in menstrual flow. This can also lead to infertility if not treated.
- Endometrial ablation – the excessively thickened uterine wall is removed and the process of removing it is known as endometrial ablation.
Procedure of Hysteroscopy
- A sedative is given to relax the patient during the procedure.
- The cervix is then dilated and hysteroscope is inserted inside the vagina.
- A liquid solution is inserted inside the vagina to expand it and get a better view.
- The inner view is examined with the help of a light from hysteroscope.
- After that, the findings are noted and if surgery is required then it is performed at the same time after taking the consent from the family.
- Sometimes, laparoscopy is performed along with hysteroscopy if required.
Why hysteroscopy is better than other open procedures
- Patients recover more easily than any other open surgical procedure.
- Faster recovery means lesser hospital stay
- These simple procedures sometimes avoids the need of hysterectomy (removal of uterus) thus saving the patient from a major surgical procedure.
- Less medications are required and the results are thus much faster
