Hysteroscopic Septal Resection for Successful Pregnancy

A patient who is unable to carry a pregnancy to term or women infertility is sometimes found, on hysterosalpingogram, to have a septate form of double uterus. In such cases,hysteroscopic resection of septum often corrects the problem and results in a successful pregnancy.
Physiologic Changes:
    A septate uterus is thought to cause fetal wastage because it cannot provide sufficient endometrium, which, in turn, provides nourishment for the developing placenta. When the septum has been removed, adequate endometrium returns, and nourishment becomes available.
    Before the introduction of the hysteroscopic operative instruments, this operation required a laparotomy as well as a hysterotomy with resection of the septum.The introduction of operative hysteroscopic instruments offers a new form of treatment that avoids a laparotomy, resulting in a shorter hospitalization and faster recovery.
    Srishti, Assisted Fertility & Advanced Laparoscopy Center (SAFAL), the reproductive medicine center, first one of this kind in the union territory of Puducherry, enables you with full package on Hysteroscopic Septal Resection.
