Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hysteroscopy is currently the gold standard in the evaluation of the uterine cavity and the treatment of intrauterine changes due to its minimally invasive nature and high diagnostic efficiency.

This minimally invasive method can be used in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as

- abnormal uterine bleeding,

- cervical canal polyps,

- polyps of the uterine mucosa,

- submucosal fibroids of the uterine canal and cavity,

- intrauterine septum,

- intrauterine adhesions,

- infertility, inability to deliver pregnancy,

- endometrial hyperplasia, i.e. excision of the uterine mucosa as an alternative to removal of the uterus in the event of heavy and abnormal uterine bleeding.

Currently, resectoscopes with a reduced diameter are increasingly used in order to: minimize discomfort in patients, reduce costs, and shorten the duration of hospitalization. The advent of modern hysteroscopic techniques makes it possible to perform the procedure without the need to dilate the cervical canal. This procedure allows the procedure to be performed without the need for short-term intravenous anesthesia.

We invite you to participate in this project.

Dr. Karolina Chmaj-Wierzchowska and Prof. Maciej Wilczak
