Septal resection

Septal resection is a surgical procedure for the removal of “uterine septum.” The uterine septum is a congenital malformation of the uterus. A longitudinal septum divides the uterus into two parts, hindering a woman’s chances of successfully implanting an embryo and carrying a baby.

Problems Caused by Uterine Septum

Recurrent miscarriage – Pregnancy may occur but often leads to miscarriage as the baby cannot grow inside a septate uterus(uterus with septum).

Premature birth may occur in some cases.
The septum is seen in association with abnormalities of the renal system in some cases.

Diagnosis of Uterine Septum

  • Transvaginal Ultrasound
  • MRI
  • Laparoscopy
  • Hysteroscopy

How is Septal Resection Performed?

The procedure is usually performed under anesthesia.

  • The doctor will first dilate (widen) the cervix.
  • The doctor will then insert a hysteroscope into your uterus through your vagina.
  • Saline will be sent into your uterus to clear the surface and help widen, which helps in better visualization.
  • The light and camera at the end of the hysteroscope allow the doctor to see the uterus.
  • Resection is done using scissor or loop.
  • The required corrections are made in the uterus.

What can you Expect After a Septal Resection?

  • You can return to work the following day.
  • You may get spotting for 3-4 days after the procedure.
  • It would help if you used sanitary pads and not tampons.
