Hysteroscopic Surgery is a procedure that helps look inside your uterus to diagnose and treat abnormal bleeding. A hysteroscope, a thin, fluorescent tube placed into the vaginal canal to inspect the cervix and the inside of the uterus, is used during hysteroscopy. Polyps, fibroids, and adhesions can all be removed by operative hysteroscopy.
Your doctor may prescribe a sedative to help you relax before the Hysteroscopic Surgery. After that, you'll be given an anesthetic. To insert the hysteroscope, your doctor will expand (widen) your cervix. The hysteroscope is placed into the uterus through your vaginal and cervix. Through the hysteroscope, carbon dioxide gas or a liquid solution is injected into the uterus to enlarge it and remove any blood or mucus. Your doctor can then see your uterus and the openings of the fallopian tubes into the uterine cavity using a light shining via the hysteroscope. Finally, small instruments are put into the uterus through the hysteroscope if surgery is required.
Hysteroscopic Surgery can also be performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as laparoscopy, or prior to dilation and curettage (D&C). Your doctor will put an endoscope (a thin tube with a fiber-optic camera) into your belly to inspect the outside of your uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes during a laparoscopic procedure. An incision is made through or below your navel to implant the endoscope.
Hysteroscopic Surgery might take anywhere from five minutes to over an hour to complete. The length of the procedure is determined by whether it is diagnostic or surgical, as well as whether another technique, such as laparoscopy, is performed concurrently. Diagnostic hysteroscopy, on the other hand, requires less time than operative hysteroscopy.
Hysteroscopic Surgery may be recommended by your doctor within the first week after your monthly cycle. The doctor will be able to get the finest image of the inside of your uterus at this time. Hysteroscopy is also used to determine the reason for postmenopausal women's abnormal bleeding or spotting.
Although Hysteroscopic Surgery has numerous advantages, it may not be right for all individuals. To evaluate whether this operation is right for you, a doctor who specializes in it will consult with your family physician.
Hysteroscopic Surgery is performed to diagnose uterine abnormalities. The results of other examinations, such as hysterosalpingography, are also confirmed using diagnostic hysteroscopy (HSG). The uterus and fallopian tubes are checked with an X-ray dye test called HSG. Diagnostic hysteroscopy is frequently performed in a doctor's office.
During a diagnostic hysteroscopy, an aberrant condition is diagnosed and surgical hysteroscopy is utilized to correct it. If an aberrant condition is discovered during the Hysteroscopic Surgery, a second surgery can be avoided by doing an operative hysteroscopy at the same time. Small instruments intended to fix the problem are put through the hysteroscope during operative hysteroscopy.
