Hysteroscopy

This is visualization of the inside of the uterus (the endometrial cavity) to help diagnose and treat certain conditions such as uterine septum , a cause of recurrent first trimester miscarriage , ,and submucus fibroids and polyps that may cause abnormal uterine bleeding , heavy menses and dysmenorrhea.
This is accomplished using a telescope called a hysteroscope. It is introduced through the vagina and cervix in to the uterine cavity (no incisions needed) The uterine cavity is kept open using saline or other types of fluids. If a uterine septum is present , it is excised and if it were a fibroid or a polyp then it is excised .

Hysteroscopic endometrial resection may be performed to induce amenorrhea (no menses) or hypomenorrhea (light menses) in women who have menorrhagia (heavy menses) when no specific pathology is present.

Other methods of treatment of menorrhagia include non-hysteroscopic endometrial ablation methods such as the use of the Thermachoice balloon ablation.

The following are video clips of hysteroscopic procedures performed by Dr.Badran:

  • Hysteroscopic resection of uterine septum with audio


  • Hysteroscopic resection of uterine septum and submucus fibroid

  • Hysteroscopic myomectomy of a 4.5 cm submucus fibroid
