Screening hysteroscopy in subfertile women and women undergoing assisted reproduction.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 Apr 16;4:CD012856. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Reproductive Medicine, Christian Medical College, Ida Scudder Road, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India, 632004.

Background: Screening hysteroscopy in infertile women with unexplained infertility, or prior to intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilisation (IVF) may reveal intrauterine pathology that may not be detected by routine transvaginal ultrasound. Hysteroscopy, whether purely diagnostic or operative may improve reproductive outcomes.

Objectives: To assess the effectiveness and safety of screening hysteroscopy in subfertile women undergoing evaluation for infertility, and subfertile women undergoing IUI or IVF. Read More

The effect of localization and histological verification of endometrial polyps on infertility.

Arch Gynecol Obstet 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Faculty of Medicine, Institute of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Debrecen, Debrecen, Hungary.

Aim: Our purpose is to investigate if transcervical resection of endometrial polyps improves the fertility in ovulatory infertile women, and whether polyp histology, intrauterine location, and the technique of polypectomy have any influence on the pregnancy rates.

Methods: In this retrospective study, clinical data of 87 ovulatory infertile women who underwent hysteroscopy and polypectomy, and their 12-month follow-up have been analyzed. Subgroups according to the method of polyp removal (resectoscope or curettage), the polyp localization (utero-tubal, anterior, posterior, lateral, multiple) and the histological result were interpreted.

Med J Islam Repub Iran 2018 22;32:90. Epub 2018 Sep 22.

School of Medicine, International Campus (IC), Iran Medical University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Electrosurgery is widely used in reproductive related surgeries and technological advancements to improve efficacy and reduce potential complications. However, some reports have indicated lack of sufficient knowledge and training about basic principles and technical aspects of electrosurgery among obstetricians and gynecologists. In this paper we present a summary on basic concepts and principles of electrosurgery and review the recent evidence on the use of electrosurgical devices in gynecologic procedures including endometrial ablation, gynecologic malignancies, loop electrode excision procedure (LEEP), and infertility.

Surgical Management of Retained Placental Tissue with the Hysteroscopic Morcellation Device.

Gynecol Minim Invasive Ther 2019 Jan-Mar;8(1):33-35. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Conventionally, surgical management of retained placental tissue is largely performed using blind dilatation and curettage. Hysteroscopic removal using diathermy loop has been shown to be successful while increasing complete removal rates and reducing risk of uterine perforation. Our two cases demonstrated that complete removal of placental tissues can be achieved with hysteroscopic morcellation device which is known to be associated with less operative time and less operative risk compared to diathermy loop.

Management of women with atypical polypoid adenomyoma of the uterus: A quantitative systematic review.

Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand 2019 Feb 3. Epub 2019 Feb 3.

Gynecology and Obstetrics Unit, Department of Neuroscience, Reproductive Sciences and Dentistry, School of Medicine, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy.

Introduction: Atypical polypoid adenomyoma is an uncommon uterine lesion which can coexist with endometrial atypical hyperplasia and/or cancer. Atypical polypoid adenomyoma affects premenopausal women in most cases, but it shows high recurrence rate if conservatively treated. To date, the management of patients is based on low-quality evidence and is not standardized. Read More
