Abstract

Sixty-six patients who had the presumptive diagnosis of Asherman's syndrome underwent hysteroscopic evaluation and treatment. In 65 patients, hysteroscopy was performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. In all but five patients, complete lysis of adhesions was accomplished during the initial hysteroscopy. Uterine perforation occurred in two of the 66 patients. The extent of the intrauterine adhesions correlated with the patients' presenting menstrual patterns, but not with prior hysterosalpingography. Of the patients who have completed surgical and hormonal therapy, 98 per cent have normal spontaneous menses. Follow-up examination of the endometrial cavity was normal in 32 of 34 patients. Seven of ten patients who wished to conceive and who had no other infertility factors have done so. The pregnancies have been uncomplicated. Hysteroscopy is the method of choice to diagnose, classify, treat, and follow-up patients with Asherman's syndrome. © 1978.
