If you are experiencing problems of the uterus, a hysteroscopy can be used to diagnose or treat your symptoms. Below watch a video of Dr. Susan Hunter performing a Hysteroscopy on a patient with a uterine polyp. Learn more about this surgical intervention now.
Today, I'm showing you a video recording of a hysteroscopy that I performed on a patient with a uterine polyp. You are now seeing a view of the inside of the uterus. This is with hysteroscopy, which is a small, thin, telescope-like device that's put up inside the uterine cavity. You are now seeing a view of the polyp that's inside the uterus attached to the back wall of the uterus. This is a good view of the polyp right here. The polyp is going to be removed with a device called MyoSure. You can see the MyoSure is being inserted into the uterine cavity right now and I'm going to remove the polyp by using the MyoSure device. This device is a cutting blade that rotates and cuts the polyp up into pieces and sucks them up into a tube that then is saved and the tissue is sent to the pathology department to analyze the polyp. This patient had a lot of bleeding in between her periods. We had performed an ultrasound in the office which showed the polyp and then she was scheduled for this hysteroscopy procedure to remove the polyp. This view right here shows that the polyp is almost completely removed. Just a few more little fragments are being removed now. This procedure can be performed as an outpatient surgery usually under general anesthesia, and the patient can usually return to her regular activities the next day. This is a good view of the inside of the uterus now with a polyp completely removed.
