Scar tissues are a natural part of the healing process. Intrauterine adhesions are scar tissues that result from any trauma (such as a D&C procedure, myomectomy etc) to the uterus. The scar tissue formed within the uterine cavity may cause partial or total obliteration of the uterus. This results in infertility, menstrual problems or recurrent pregnancy loss. This syndrome is also known as Asherman’s Syndrome. Hysteroscopy is used to diagnose the extent and location of the adhesion. This procedure is also used as a treatment method. It is used to cut the scar tissue and rebuild a normal uterine cavity.
Management of adhesions using hysteroscopy is generally favourable. It restores the symmetry of the uterine cavity and resolves menstrual and infertility problems.
