Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To describe the reproductive outcome in 22 women with a bicornuate uterus who underwent Strassman metroplasty.

STUDY DESIGN:

The study analyzed pregnancy outcomes.

RESULTS:

Of women who had undergone Strassman metroplasty, 88% achieved pregnancies that ended with the birth of a viable infant. A total of 19 infants were born. All pregnancies that ended at term had normal courses, and a cesarean section was performed in all cases. The "take-home-baby" rate was 100% for the first postoperative pregnancy.

CONCLUSION:

The postmetroplasty reproductive capacity of women with a bicornuate uterus was very good. Strassman metroplasty should be reserved for selected women with bicornuate uteri who have experienced recurrent spontaneous abortion or preterm birth.
