Hysteroscopy is a vital component of reproductive surgery, as it facilitates the evaluation of the potential implantation site which is an important step in the management of women with infertility. This minimally invasive procedure allows for the direct visualization of the endometrial lining and tubal ostia and has long been established as a safe and effective method in the management of intracavitary uterine pathology.
Studies show that around 30-40% of women with infertility have tubal obstruction and endometrial pathologies detected by hysteroscopy. Several papers have also demonstrated the potential capability of hysteroscopy to improve reproductive outcomes and reduce time to pregnancy in these women.
Technological advances in the field of hysteroscopy have produced narrow-width scopes that allow hysteroscopy to be performed in the office setting without the need for regional or general anesthesia. Office hysteroscopy offers immediate visual affirmation of diseases while obviating the need for hospitalization, which is a particular advantage during this covid pandemic. This lessens the patient’s financial burden, reduces the risks for anesthetic complications and enhances patient’s safety.
With the advent of morcellators and energy devices, office hysteroscopy has expanded its role from being a diagnostic to an operative procedure. By providing the ultimate see-and-treat approach, office hysteroscopy has been considered an operative gold standard technique.
This webinar aims to discuss the role of office hysteroscopy on infertility workup and expound on the many applications of operative office hysteroscopy. Let us learn from our team of experts as they share with us innovative tips and tricks to maximize the chance of success of an office hysteroscopy. Prepare yourselves to be challenged and inspired.
On behalf of ASPIRE, IGES, and PSRM, we look forward to seeing you on February 21, 2021.
