Post-abortion hysteroscopic evaluation – A way to prevent long term complications

Introduction: Either appearing after miscarriage or abortion by request, the trophoblastic retention is often easy to diagnose, but the management can be difficult. Therefore, severe consequences may appear: endometritis, infertility, intrauterine adhesions, persistent molar pregnancy.

AbstractAsherman ’s Syndrome (AS) is an acquired condition defined by the presence of intrauterine adhesions (IUA) that cause symptoms such as menstrual abnormalities, pelvic pain, infertility, recurrent miscarriage, abnormal placentation and attendant psychological distress. Classically, AS is considered an iatro genic disease triggered by trauma to the pregnant uterus. Different factors can cause the destruction of the endometrium, thus affecting the endometrial stem cell niche and creating IUAs. Curettage of the pregnant uterus appears to be the most common source of this destruction. Nevertheless, some AS cases h...

Asherman ’s syndrome (AS) is a typical injury disease with endometrial fibrosis as main pathological manifestation. It is one of the main causes of female infertility associated with endometrial dysfunction, resulting in implantation difficulties, miscarriage and other adverse pregnancy outcome. Studies ha ve found that damage to endometrial basalis directly affect the endometrial regeneration, therefore, intrauterine adhesions are also considered as an endometrial stem cells absence or regenerative dysfunction related diseases.

Elevated NF-κB signaling in Asherman syndrome patients and animal models. Oncotarget. 2017 Jan 27;: Authors: Wang X, Ma N, Sun Q, Huang C, Liu Y, Luo X Abstract Asherman syndrome (intrauterine adhesion) is often associated with menstrual abnormalities, infertility and recurrent miscarriage in female. Currently the molecular mechanism regulating the pathogenesis of Asherman syndrome is not known. Here we revealed that the inflammatory factor NF-κB expression is significantly elevated in the endometrial samples of Asherman syndrome patients. To further study the molecular mechanisms, we estab...

CONCLUSIONS: This systematic review suggests a link between TOP and adhesion formation, but, according to the scientific literature and despite new diagnostic facilities, the relationship between the methods of TOP and IUA formation remains unclear. Nevertheless, the reported frequency is in accordance with that found in women following D&C for miscarriage. Further research is required. PMID: 27436757 [PubMed - in process]

One of the hardest things for an infertile couples to deal with is a miscarriage after an IVF cycle . While not getting pregnant can be heartbreaking , losing a pregnancy after getting pregnant is far worse . Sadly, IVF does not provide any protection against miscarriage , and just like a natural pregnancy has a miscarriage rate of about 10% , so does an IVF pregnancy . The loss is far more acute, because this is such a deeply desired pregnancy . A miscarriage can often be the last straw which breaks the camel' s back , and many patients will give up after this. This is a shame, because the fact that you have got pregnant ...

CONCLUSIONS: This appears to be the first documentation of IUA that were entirely attributable to the index miscarriage or its management. There appears to be an increased risk of IUA following D&C with larger uteri and multiple pregnancies and following mechanical suction D&C. PMID: 27261221 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Hysteroscopic adhesiolysis in patients with moderate Asherman’s syndrome before ICSI restores the anatomy of the uterine cavity and the menstrual blood flow and optimizes the patients’ chances during ICSI, compared with patients with normal uterine cavities; however, their clinical pregnancy rates after correction may be significantly lower.
