Course Description

This advanced surgical tutorial will cover state of the art office, diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopic surgery is the least invasive approach for the management of a myriad of intra-uterine structural abnormalities. This session will share tips and tricks from the Masters, to safely and efficiently perform many of these procedures in the office setting. The epidemic of C-sections has led to new entities such as Isthmocele, or cesarean scar defect, which requires highly specialized hysteroscopic skills to perform Isthmoplasty. The faculty will also navigate the diagnosis and management of Intra-uterine Adhesions or Asherman’s syndrome. One approach to decrease the risk of intra-uterine adhesions is the focused hysteroscopic resection of retained products of conception, which will be covered in this session as well.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to: 1) Perform office hysteroscopy, diagnose and treat Isthmocele, Intra-uterine adhesions and retained products of conception.
