Hysteroscopic Septal Resection

The septum layer is removed from the uterus surgically during septum resection, where the septum is the layer of tissue that forms during the formation of the foetus in the mother's womb. Hysteroscopic Septal Resection is whether the operation raises the possibility of a normal birth among women with a septate uterus or if the advantages exceed the risks.

Hysteroscopy is known as a procedure that is used to identify and treat uterine or womb issues. A narrow, telescope-like camera is placed through into uterus via the vaginal canal. The camera is referred to as a hysteroscope since illumination is on end.

The only technique to remove the uterus prior was to make an incision, mostly in the abdomen. However, thanks to advancements in technology, hysterectomies can now be performed without the need for an abdominal incision.

The uterus is removed surgically through the vaginal canal using this novel procedure.

Types of Hysteroscopy:

Diagnostic: It is also performed for various other reasons, such as detecting the cause of repeated miscarriages pelvic pain and finding the fertility issues apart from diagnosing the cause of abnormal bleeding.

Operative: It can be done for various purposes, such as finding and eliminating an intrauterine device implanted in the uterus for birth control, for removal of growths, for obtaining a biopsy of the tissue, and for removing the adhesions.

Laparoscopic hysterectomies meant a quicker return to normal activities, less blood loss and a smaller drop in blood count, a shorter stay in the hospital, and fewer wound infections and episodes of raised temperature after surgery than abdominal hysterectomies. But laparoscopic hysterectomies have a greater risk of damaging the bladder or ureter (the tube leading to the bladder from the kidney) and are longer operations.


Before starting the procedure

To help the patient relax and relieve the pain during the procedure, they are given sedatives. Also, medicine may be inserted to open the cervix.

During the procedure

  • Before inserting the hysteroscope, a speculum device is introduced into the vagina to widen it
  • A carbon dioxide gas or fluid (such as saline) is pushed into the uterus through the hysteroscope to enable the doctor to see the uterus lining more clearly. Throughout the process, the volume of fluid supplied will be continuously checked
  • Views of the tissue and the apertures of the fallopian tubes are presented on a screen when the hysteroscope is gently moved through the uterus
  • Doctors will examine the photos and seek for issues during a diagnostic hysteroscopy
  • The hysteroscope will be used as a surgical tool in operative hysteroscopy to eliminate fibroids

What are the side effects of Hysteroscopic Septal Resection?

Complications or side effects are likely to occur in patients having operative hysteroscopy instead of diagnostic hysteroscopy.

Hysteroscopic Septal Resection
  • Disruption to the uterus may necessitate antibiotic treatment or, in rare situations, surgery
  • If the cervix is damaged, it may typically be healed quickly
  • Infections in the uterus can result in a foul-smelling discharge, a fever, and excessive bleeding and are usually treated with antibiotics
  • Feeling faint or dizzy: Many patients under local anaesthetic or without anaesthesia will experience dizziness or faintness
  • eavy bleeding both during and after the surgery: This can be managed with medicine or by undergoing a second procedure, i.e., eliminating the uterus in extremely rare circumstances

Scarless Hysterectomy

With the discovery of the vaginal path for hysterectomy for non-descent uteri, gynaecologists discovered a means to perform hysterectomy without leaving a scar on the abdomen, known as scarless hysterectomy.

This procedure includes several advantages such as Economically feasible, No formation of scar, and is useful for patients who have benign diseases priorly.
