HysteroscopyInstrumentation<br />Lockable cabinet<br />Telescope<br />Sheath system<br /> Hysteroscope<br /> Diagnostic<br /> Operative<br /> Resectoscope<br />Distention systems<br /> Gas insufflator<br /> Fluid delivery system<br />Light source and cable<br />Video cameras and monitors<br />
  7. 7. Hysteroscopes / Sheaths<br />Flexible (3-5 mm)<br />Adv. Minimal risk of trauma, ability to deflect the view manually<br />Disadv.Greater cost, inability to widen view or to magnify the image, inability to use the instrument<br />Rigid (4 mm) 0-30 degrees <br />Microhysteroscope (2.4-2.7 mm)<br />
  8. 8. Light Source<br />The optics of telescope 150 – W light source with flexible fiber optic cables<br /> Halogen or xenon types bulbs for video cameras and monitors<br />
  9. 9. Distention media<br />Normal saline , Ringer’s lactate<br />( Low-viscosity fluid)<br />Best with continuous flow, clear view, costly insufflators and pumps are unnecessary, bipolar procedures<br />Sorbitol, Glycine, Mannitol<br />( Low-viscosity fluid)<br />Monopolar procedures<br />
  10. 10. TIMING<br />It is preferable to perform hysteroscopy in the proliferative phase or immediately following a menstrual period.<br />
  11. 11. Hysteroscopy - Benefits<br />Direct visualization of any pathology<br /> No X-ray exposure<br /> Insertion under visualization decreases chance of perforation<br />
  12. 12. Indication hysteroscopy<br />Unexplained uterine bleeding<br />Suspected intra- uterine pathology(polyps, myomas, adhesions, foreign bodies)<br />
  13. 13. HysteroscopyContraindications<br />Active PID<br /> Active profuse uterine bleeding<br />Recent uterine perforation<br /> Pregnancy<br /> Cx Ca <br /> Cardiovascular or systemic diseases<br />
  14. 14. HysteroscopyComplications<br />Uterine perforation<br /> Hemorrhage<br /> Infection<br /> Hypervolemia<br /> Hyponatremic encephalopathy and cardiac asystole, arrhythmia<br /> Hypercarbia, acidosis, gas embolism<br />
  15. 15. OUTPATIENT HYSTEROSCOPY<br />Because of excellent drainage, the risk for infection with office hysteroscopy is exceedingly low. <br />( 0.1%-2.8%)<br />
  16. 16. OUTPATIENT HYSTEROSCOPY<br />The outpatient hysteroscopy failure rate is less than half (2%) with the mini-hysteroscope compared with the traditional 5 mm hysteroscope (5%).<br />De Angelis C Hum Reprod. 2003;18:2441-5.<br />
  17. 17. OUTPATIENT HYSTEROSCOPY<br />Office flexible minihysteroscopes (2.5 and 3.5 mm) can be successfully used in an office setting for gynecologic indications with high patient acceptance.<br />Ross JW. J Am Assoc GynecolLaparosc. 2000 ;7:221-6.<br />
  18. 18. OUTPATIENT HYSTEROSCOPY<br />Saline diagnostic hysteroscopy offers at least all the advantages of the CO2 hysteroscopy, and gives the possibility to easily 'find and treat in situ' many of the lesions observed.<br />Perez-Medina T Int J Gynaecol Obstet. 2000 ;71:33-8.<br />

  21. 21. <ul><li>Abstract Study objective We perform hysteroscopy in 78 women for the diagnosis and treatment of pathologic changes in the uterine cavity of women with dysfunctional uterine bleeding age above 45 . All hysteroscopies were successfully carried out and the therapeutic results were excellent. Design Retrospective study. Setting BAPAT hospital INDORE MP. INDIA , department of obstetrics and gynaecologyPatient 78 married women who underwent hysteroscopy on the condition of age more than 45 for DUB .

  51. 51. OUTPATIENT HYSTEROSCOPY<br />Hysteroscopy done as out patient procedure in patients of DUB, has low complication rate, high requirement and adds little equipment & cost. <br /> Positive hysteroscopic findings were found in many cases (21.8 %) despite having normal TVS and no suggestive history of uterine lesion.<br />
  52. 52. HYSTEROSCOPY<br />
  53. 53. OUTPATIENT HYSTEROSCOPY<br />It is no more acceptable for a gynecologist to insert a sharp curette into a uterine cavity blindly to discover and remove suspected pathology than it is for an orthopedist to insert a curette into a knee joint blindly.<br />
  54. 54. Conclusion<br /><ul><li>Out of 78 (100%) with AUB 70 patients (90% )with normal transvaginalsonographcally
  55. 55. 17 patients (21.8%) were abnormal hysteroscopically
  56. 56. Cervical canal polyps may be missed by transvaginal sonography
  57. 57. but diagnosed by hysteroscopy</li></ul>In patients with AUB and normal TVS, hysteroscopy can be used as the second step.<br />
  58. 58. <ul><li>Therefore, hysteroscopy is one of the best methods to detect the polyps for this area.
  59. 59. According to high conformity between the hysteroscopy and pathology, diagnostic ability of hysteroscopy was higher than transvaginal sonography. </li></ul>Conclusion<br />
  60. 60. Conclusion<br /><ul><li>Therefore, it is recommended that patient with abnormal uterine bleeding whose transvaginal</li></ul> sonography is normal, hysteroscopy is considered<br />to be as the second step.<br />
