Operative hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive gynecological procedure in which an endoscopic optical lens is inserted through the cervix into the endometrial cavity to direct treatment of various types of intrauterine pathology. operative hysteroscopy is a procedure to find and treat problems with your uterus. It may be done to remove growths from the uterus. It may also be used to treat fertility problems or abnormal bleeding. You will most likely go home the same day. Many women are able to go back to work the next day. But it depends on what was done and the type of work you do.
Operative hysteroscopy became popular after improvements in endoscopic technology and instruments in the 1970s and after the introduction of fluid distension media in the 1980s. Since that time, the development of new hysteroscopic instruments, fiber optics, and digital video equipment has continued to provide more varied, efficacious, and less invasive procedures. The introduction of smaller-diameter hysteroscopes has allowed operative hysteroscopy to become a predominately office and outpatient procedure.
