Hysteroscopic adhesiolysis is a surgical procedure used to remove adhesions (scar tissue) that may have formed inside the uterus, also known as Asherman’s syndrome. These adhesions can occur as a result of previous surgery, infection, or injury to the uterus.

During the procedure, a hysteroscope, which is a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light attached to the end, is inserted through the vagina and cervix and into the uterus. The surgeon then uses specialized instruments to cut or remove the adhesions from the uterine lining.

Hysteroscopic adhesiolysis is typically performed under general anesthesia and may require an overnight hospital stay. Recovery time may vary depending on the extent of the adhesions removed and the underlying cause of the adhesions. Your doctor can provide more information about the expected recovery time for your specific situation.

The procedure is often used to treat infertility or menstrual irregularities caused by adhesions in the uterus. It is considered a safe and effective treatment, with a high success rate in restoring normal menstrual cycles and improving fertility.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with hysteroscopic adhesiolysis, such as bleeding, infection, or injury to the uterus or surrounding organs.
