Abstract

Objective: The aim of the study was to determine the effectiveness ofhysteroscopic endomyometrial resection in the treatment of menorrhagia. Study Design: Eighty-six women with menorrhagia underwent hysteroscopic endomyometrial resection between November 1990 and November 1993. The surgery was carried out under spinal anesthesia in 54 (64%) of the patients. A standard resectoscope was used and the uterine cavity distended with 2.2% glycine. The mean follow-up period was 22 months (range 4-39). Results: No major complications occurred and no fluid overload was reported. One episode of uterine perforation, one of pelvic infection, five episodes of postspinal headache and four of hematometra were recorded. Hysterectomy was performed in five cases. Follow-up information was available on 79 (92%) patients. Amenorrhea was achieved in 20 (25%) patients and hypomenorrhea in 44 (56%) patients. Only three(4%) patients showed no improvement in menstrual flow. Conclusions: Hysteroscopic endomyometrial resection is a safe and effective mode of treatment for menorrhagia in selected patients.
