Septate uterus, i.e. an incompletely septated uterus or uterus subseptus, is one of the most common forms of congenital uterine malformations. The incidence of congenital uterine malformations has been reported to be as high as 3-4% in the general female population and to be significantly higher in patients with infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss.
Using an operative Hysteroscope, uterine septum is resected (cut) to achieve a triangular and symmetrical cavity.
Studies have showed women with septate uterus and a history of infertility, hysteroscopic septoplasty is a safe and effective procedure resulting in a pregnancy rate of 60% and a LBR of 45%.
