Pain, cramps, bloating, and mood swings are common during the monthly menstruation cycle, but when it happens in excess or disrupts your daily life, you should consult a doctor regarding your reproductive health. In such a case, your healthcare specialist recommends you a hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopy is the procedure that can help the doctor identify the issue related to your pain by getting an up-close look at your cervix and uterus.
What is Hysteroscopy?
Hysteroscopy is a procedure your doctor performs to learn more about your reproductive health. Here your doctor inserts a hysteroscope (a thin tube with a light on the end) into your vagina to examine your cervix and your uterus. Hence hysteroscopy is very helpful in identifying anything abnormal down there by taking a sample for later testing.
What are Submucosal Fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are the noncancerous growths of the uterus which ranges in size from seedlings which generally goes unnoticeable, to bulky masses that can disfigure or even enlarge the uterus.
Generally, fibroids are classified by their location, they are:
• Intramural fibroids: They are the growth found within the muscular uterine wall.
• Subserosal fibroids: They are the growth that projects towards the outside of the uterus.
• Submucosal fibroids: they are the growth that bulges into the uterine cavity.
What are the symptoms of Submucosal Fibroid?
The symptoms of submucosal fibroids are:
• Heavy menstrual bleeding
• Frequent urination
• Periods longer than a week
• Pelvic pain
• Mild pelvic pressure
• A backache
• Leg cramps and pain
What is Hysteroscopic Resection of Fibroids?
Hysteroscopic Resection of fibroids is a procedure used to remove strips of fibroid under direct vision. Here a low voltage electrical current is passed through the wire loop electrode to remove the fibroids present in the uterine wall. At the end of the wire, a telescope is attached for better vision.
A hysteroscopic approach is used best for the resection of which fibroids?
Hysteroscopic resection is used best for submucosal fibroids. Through a trans-cervical approach, submucous fibroids of less than 4cm in size (away from the outer border of the uterus) can be resected easily and safely.
