Hysteroscopy (Greek "hysteria" - uterus, "scopo" - I examine) - a minimally invasive endoscopic method for the diagnostics and treatment of intrauterine pathology.
The diagnostic value of this method is a large-scale examination of the uterine cavity, which makes it possible to quickly and correctly establish the diagnosis.
Operative (surgical) hysteroscopy enables to:
- remove submucosal myomatous nodes;
- remove endometrial polyps;
- eliminate the cause of uterine bleeding;
- perform resection (excision) of the uterine septum;
- to disconnect intrauterine synechiae (conjunction).
During the operation, the patient is in a gynecological position. For hysteroscopy, the uterine cavity is filled with fluid, which creates an optical workspace and allows to perform any diagnostic or surgical manipulation. An optical device and instruments are introduced through the cervix, and the operation is performed under the monitor control.
Required tests for the operation:
- Blood test for RW, HIV, HBS antigen
- Blood group, Rh factor test
- Blood biochemistry, coagulogram - valid for 10 days
- Blood test for sugar is valid for 10 days
- Complete blood count is valid for 10 days
- General urine test, feces for worm eggs
- Flora smear (vaginal), cytology
- General practitioner consultation
Preparation for surgery: shower, pubic shave.
