Clinical characteristics and reproductive outcome following hysteroscopic adhesiolysis of patients with intrauterine adhesion--a retrospective study.
Clin Exp Obstet Gynecol. 2014; 41(2):144-8.CE

Abstract

The authors performed a retrospective clinical analysis of 153 patients with intrauterine ashesion (IUA) who underwent hysteroscopic adhesiolysis. A follow-up office hysteroscopy was performed in all cases after three months. On follow-up hysteroscopy, 22 patients showed reformation of adhesions and required a repeat procedure. The primary risk factor for IUA was uterine curettage associated with pregnancy termination. The follow-up study revealed that the rate of pregnancy after IUA treatment was 51%. The conception rate in women who had reformation of IUA was significantly lower than that of women who had a normal cavity following adhesiolysis. Therefore the authors conclude that prevention is more important than therapy in IUA. Increasing education about avoiding curettage is necessary to reduce the incidence of IUA. Outreach is particularly important for older women with less education. However, hysteroscopic adhesiolysis for IUA is a safe and effective method of choice for restoring menstrual function and fertility.
