Author information

  • 1Institute of Reproductive Medicine, Calcutta, India.


Eighteen women aged 12 to 20 years with congenital cervicovaginal atresia were treated with a new technique of surgical canalization. All are now having regular menses. Two pregnancies have been achieved, with delivery of viable neonates. Surgical correction of this anomaly during adolescence may aid in restoration of menstrual and reproductive function.
