Abstract

BACKGROUND:

There is enough evidence in the literature to support that removal of septum improves pregnancy rates in women with bad obstetric history. However, its role in patients with otherwise unexplained infertility is still not clear due to paucity of enough evidence.

OBJECTIVE:

To assess reproductive performance in women with septate uterus and otherwise unexplained infertility after hysteroscopic metroplasty.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

72 women with septate uterus and otherwise unexplained primary infertility were included in the study. All these women underwent hysteroscopic septal resection. Reproductive performance of these women within one year of surgery was studied and analysed.

RESULT:

33 women (45.83%) conceived within one year of surgery. Only 4 women (12%) had spontaneous abortions and only 5 (15%) had preterm delivery.

CONCLUSION:

Hysteroscopic metroplasty in women with septate uterus significantly improves the reproductive performance.

KEYWORDS:

Infertility; hysteroscopy; septal resection
