Conclusion(s)Office hysteroscopy is a well tolerated procedure and prior use of analgesic medication was not effective in decreasing pain. In selected patients with chronic pelvic pain the use prior analgesic medication may be beneficial.

This study aimed to assess the feasibility and efficacy of office hysteroscopy to diagnose and treat the specific uterine pathologies frequently diagnosed and thought to be associated with female infertility.Material and methods: Using office hysteroscopy, we examined the uterine cavity in women with primary or secondary infertility and evaluated the reproductive outcomes of those affected by one or more pathologies, including cervico-isthmic adhesions, intrauterine polyps and intrauterine adhesions. Additional patient characteristics considered were age and parity, uterine pathology, pain during hysteroscopy, and outcomes...

This article discusses the role of ultrasound in assessing endometrial and uterine factors affecting the implantation of the embryo. Modern ultrasound equipment includes advanced Doppler and three-dimensional facilities that refine our understanding of factors that affect implantation such as endometrial blood flow. Three dimensional scanning is principally used to define the relationship of fibroids to the endometrial cavity, the position of polyps and other anatomic structures relative to the implantation site, to diagnose adenomyosis, to reveal and classify congenital uterine malformations and in the differential diagno...

3D ultrasound imaging of the female pelvis is one of the most important recent advances in diagnostic imaging. Volume acquisitions can provide a large number of images of the pelvic organs simultaneously and in any plane or orientation desired. The coronal plane of the uterus is only visible when reconstructed from a volume and is key to imaging the uterus for indications such as uterine anomalies, IUD positioning, locations of fibroids and polyps, or early pregnancies. 3D ultrasonography has huge potential for evaluating infertile patients, performing difficult procedures under guidance, and studying patients with abnorma...

ConclusionIn women with endometrial polyps, the prevalence of CE in infertile women is higher than that in fertile women. Pregnancy outcome in infertile women with treated CE was similar to those who were infertile and without CE.

ConclusionIn women with endometrial polyps the prevalence of CE is higher in those with infertility compared to women without infertility. Pregnancy outcome of infertile women with treated CE was similar to those with infertility and without CE.

ConclusionsPolypectomy improved the conception rate in the subsequent year regardless of the intrauterine localization and the method of its surgical removal. Therefore, we can conclude that polypectomy should be considered in infertile women.

Endometrial polyps, adenomyosis, and leiomyomas are commonly encountered abnormalities frequently found in both fertile women and those with infertility. The clinician is frequently challenged to determine which of these entities, when found, is likely to impair fertility, and which are “innocent bystanders” unrelated to the problem at hand. Although removing an endometrial polyp may be seen as a relatively benign and safe intervention, myomectomy, and in particular adenomyomectomy, can be substantive surgical procedures, associated with their own potential for disrupting ferti lity.
