Hysteroscopy is the name of the procedure, where the doctor to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of infertility and abnormal bleeding. Hysteroscopy is done by introducing a telescope through vagina cervix into the uterus.
Hysteroscopy can be either diagnostic nature or operative procedure. Diagnostic hysteroscopy is used to diagnose problems of the patient’s uterus. It is also used to confirm results of other tests performed, such as hysterosalpingography (HSG). HSG is an X-ray based dye test used to check the uterus and fallopian tubes. Additionally, hysteroscopy can be used with other procedures, such as laparoscopy, in laparoscopy, the doctor will insert an endoscope (a thin tube fitted with a fiber optic camera) into your abdomen to view the outside of your uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. The endoscope is inserted through an small incision which is made through or above your navel.
Operative hysteroscopy will be used to correct an abnormal condition that has been previously detected during a diagnostic hysteroscopy. If any abnormal condition was detected during the diagnostic hysteroscopy, an operative hysteroscopy procedure can often be performed at the same time, avoiding to go in for a second surgery. During operative hysteroscopy, resector instruments used to correct the condition are inserted through the hysteroscope itself.
Hysteroscopy is the inspection of the uterine cavity by endoscopy, through the cervix. It allows for the diagnosis of intrauterine pathology and also serves as a method for surgical intervention. A hysteroscope is an endoscope that carries optical and light channels or fibers inside patients uterus. It is introduced in a sheath that is providing an inflow and outflow channel for insufflation of the uterine cavity. In addition, an operative channel may be present to introduce scissors, graspers or biopsy instruments during the procedure. A hysteroscopic resectoscope is similar to a transurethral resectoscope and it allows entry of an electric loop which will be helpful to shave off tissue, for instance to eliminate a fibroid.
Hysteroscopy is basically a procedure to diagnose or treat problems of the uterus. A hysteroscope is a thin, front end lighted telescope like device which inserted through patient’s vagina into their uterus. The hysteroscope will be sending the image of patient’s uterus onto a screen. Other instruments that are used along with the hysteroscope for treatment.
Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery. The doctor inserts a tiny telescope (hysteroscope) through the cervix of the patient into their uterus. The hysteroscope allows the doctor to visualize the inside of the uterine cavity on a video monitor. The uterine cavity will be then inspected for any abnormality. The doctor will be examining the shape of the uterus, the lining and looks for any evidence of intrauterine pathology (Mainly for fibroids or polyps). The surgeon also attempts to visualize the openings to the fallopian tubes (tubalostia) through this procedure. We will be using this to diagnose our patients thoroughly before advising them for further proceedings.
