Abstract

STUDY OBJECTIVE:

To compare the reproductive outcome in women with recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) associated with septate uterus after hysteroscopic metroplasty compared with patients who did not undergo surgery.

DESIGN:

Longitudinal evaluation (Canadian Task Force classification II-2).

SETTING:

University of Rome, Tor Vergata-affiliated endoscopic unit.

PATIENTS:

Forty-eight consecutive women with septate uterus and RSA were enrolled in the study.

INTERVENTIONS:

Hysteroscopic metroplasty.

MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS:

Reproductive outcome in terms of term pregnancy was significantly improved after hysteroscopic metroplasty compared with controls (76% vs. 20%). No differences were found in the prevalence of preterm delivery between groups (4% vs. 5%).

CONCLUSION:

Our data suggest that hysteroscopic septum incision can improve pregnancy outcome in patients with RSA associated with septate uterus.
