Diagnostic and surgical hysteroscopy represents an important branch in the field of modern gynecological surgery. It is now universally recognized that most endouterine pathologies have a first choice treatment represented by hysteroscopic surgery.
The recent development of miniaturized technologies has reduced the invasiveness of hysteroscopic surgery, thus transforming it into a technique that is truly minimally invasive. Some hysteroscopic surgery treatments can now even be performed in the office setting without resorting to general anesthesia.
Traditional applications of hysteroscopy have been in the treatment of infertility and endometrial neoplastic pathology. More recent indications for surgical hysteroscopy include the treatment of cervical pregnancy, isthmocele, RPOC, new congenital uterine malformations, and for conservative management of early stage endometrial neoplasia in young women. The advent of modern technologies such as the 15 Fr. Mini-resectoscope, Diode Laser and Tissue removal devices has also expanded the range of surgical instrumentation that is now available.
For these reasons, it is now timely and appropriate to dedicate a special issue of the journal Clinical and Experimental Obstetrics & Gynecology to Hysteroscopic Surgery. This issue provides an excellent opportunity to publish high quality research in the growing field of surgical hysteroscopy.
