Laparo-hysteroscopic metroplasty is a surgical procedure that combines laparoscopy and hysteroscopy to correct uterine abnormalities that can cause infertility or miscarriage.

Laparoscopy involves the use of a laparoscope, which is a long, thin tube with a camera and light attached to the end. The laparoscope is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen, allowing the surgeon to see and access the uterus and surrounding structures.

Hysteroscopy involves the use of a hysteroscope, which is a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light attached to the end. The hysteroscope is inserted through the vagina and cervix and into the uterus, allowing the surgeon to visualize the inside of the uterus.

During laparo-hysteroscopic metroplasty, the surgeon may use a combination of laparoscopy and hysteroscopy to correct uterine abnormalities, such as a uterine septum, which is a type of congenital uterine anomaly where the uterus is divided into two parts by a wall of tissue.

The surgeon may use specialized instruments to remove or resect the septum, or they may use a laser to create a hole in the septum, allowing the uterus to function as a single cavity.Laparo-hysteroscopic metroplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia and may require a short hospital stay. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications, such as bleeding, infection, and damage to surrounding organs. Your doctor can provide more information about the risks and benefits of laparo-hysteroscopic metroplasty and whether it may be an appropriate treatment option for you.
