[The obstetrical future of women who have been operated on for uterine synechiae. 107 cases operated on (author's transl)]

J Gynecol Obstet Biol Reprod (Paris). 1979;8(8):723-6.
[Article in French]


The authors undertake to show that the obstetric future of women who have been operated on for uterine synechiae is not as poor as would appear from previous publications. 59 p. 100 of 75 women who wanted to become pregnant did so and 46 p. 100 went on to have at least one living child. If one only takes into account those women who were able to be followed up, 71 p. 100 became pregnant and 55 p. 100 had pregnancies with a viable child. When women with only uterine synechiae and without an associated lesion were considered, 81 p. 100 of them became pregnant and 67 p. 100 had a viable child. From this it is important to screen for an associated lesion by laparoscopy. The authors also write about the value of hysteroscopy carried out to find synechiae more easily and to control the treatment.
