Hysteroscopy is a procedure that directly visualizes the cervical canal and the inside of the uterus. A lens or hysteroscope transmits the intrauterine image directly to the camera.
Why perform a Hysteroscopy?
The most frequent reason is abnormal gynecological bleeding. It allows to identify and remove endometrial polyps only visible through this method, as well as myomas, uterine malformations, including the removal of IUD (intrauterine device).
Hysteroscopy can be diagnostic to identify possible alterations of the endometrium and the uterine cavity (polyps, endometrial cancer, adhesions, etc.) and therapeutic when the excision or biopsy of the identified lesion is performed.
