What is Hysteroscopy ?
Diagnostic hysteroscopy is a procedure taking place through cervical access, i.e. entering the uterine cavity via the cervix. Hysteroscopy (from the Greek hystera = womb and skopein = to look, to view) is a procedure through which the health professional can inspect the uterine cavity and perform as required various diagnostic or surgical procedures.
Diagnostic hysteroscopy is a fairly simple procedure. The innovative hysteroscope is so narrow that it can be inserted to the uterine cavity through the cervix without first having to dilate it; this enables conducting diagnostic procedure with no need of general anesthetics.
Hysteroscopy is indicated to a woman with a suspicion of pathological intrauterine bleeding pre- or post-menopause, Infertility, recurrent miscarriages, Intrauterine adhesions, septum, polyp, fibroid, etc...
Surgical hysteroscopy is rather more invasive a procedure where anomalies detected during diagnostic hysteroscopy or ultrasound can be treated.
