The authors, based on their own material, evaluated the value of hysteroscopic treatment of endometrial polyps in a group of infertile women. Polypectomy was performed in 25 patients using either endoscopic microscissors or electric loop. Follow-up hysteroscopy was performed after two months as an integral part of the treatment. All the patients were observed for 12 months. The primary intrauterine investigation was complete in all patients without regard to kind of instrument which was confirmed by second-look hysteroscopy. About 80% of the patients who underwent surgery conceived. Restoration of reproductive ability did not depend on the size of the removed lesion.
