T-shaped Uterus in the 21st Century (Post DES era) - We Need to Know More!

Author information

Department of Reproductive Medicine, St. Mary's Hospital, Manchester, UK.


T-Shaped uterus is a rare uterine malformation, and has classically been associated with "in-utero" exposure of DES (diethylstilbestrol). Surprisingly, the prevalence of T shaped uterus is significant even today. Hysteroscopic metroplasty is a simple procedure which can potentially improve outcomes in sub-fertile women, but the data is not robust. There is a need for centralised database for registration of women with T shaped uterine anomalies, which will help in defining clear diagnostic criteria, surgical indication & technique, and follow up of reproductive outcomes after the procedure.
