Abstract

Panoramic diagnostic microhysteroscopy was performed in the outpatient department on 976 patients without using any type of anaesthetic. In 889 patients, that is 91%, the examination was successful, while it failed in 87 cases, that is, 9%. In 90% of the patients, the examination caused no pain whatsoever, and none of the patients suffered serious complications, either immediately after the examination or later. Comparison with the definite histological diagnosis showed 100% sensitivity and 86% specificity of microhysteroscopy. We can state that panoramic diagnostic microhysteroscopy performed in the outpatient department has proved to be a reliable examination from a diagnostic point of view, and is moreover safe and without pain for the patients.
