Paper Abstract

The comparison between results of scissors- and Nd-YAG laser-resection of intrauterine septa in hysteroscopy was shown. In 12 patients the scissors-resection and in 11 women the laser- resection was done. In the group of patients after laser procedure 10 of them were pregnant and 9 delivered healthy children. One missed abortion was diagnosed in the twenty-first week of gestation. After scissors-resection 7 women became pregnant and 5 of them bore mature children. Two of those seven lost their gestation (spontaneous abortions in the nineteenth and twentieth weeks of pregnancy). In the authors' opinion hysteroscopy is a very useful method of diagnostics and therapy of intrauterine septa. The Nd-YAG laser-resection of intrauterine septa seems to be the method with the lowest number of complications. Fertility and parity highly improves after removal of the septa localized in the uterine cavity.
