Congenital Uterine Anomalies

Surgical repair of congenital uterine anomalies is primarily directed toward women with uterine septae, bicorniate uteri and obstructed components of the genital tract. The most common indications for repair are pelvic pain and recurrent pregnancy loss.

Hysteroscopic metroplasty has become the method of choice for repair of most intrauterine septa. Benefits to the transcervical approach include less morbidity, no abdominal or uterine muscle incisions, faster recovery and high pregnancy rates.

Removal of an obstructed hemi uterus can be done laparoscopically. This procedure is done when there is pelvic pain or endometriosis caused by blood moving from the uterus into the pelvic cavity. This may also improve fertility in some women.
