Abstract

The results of panoramic diagnostic microhysteroscopy are reported in 284 patients with sterility or infertility problems. In 33.5% of the patients, microhysteroscopy revealed uterine pathology; in the majority of cases they were pathologies which are unanimously recognized as being causes of sterility, while in others there were pathologies whose role in infertilities is still unclear. There was a good correlation between microhysteroscopy and histology in cases of endometrial hyperplasia and of endometriotis, whereas in cases of endometrial polyps and functional diagnosis of the endometrium, the correlation was less satisfactory. Although it is not posible at present to draw definite conclusions about the real value and advantages of microhysteroscopy in the diagnosis of female infertility, we are convinced that it is of great use and that it should be at the basis of any investigation involving the infertile woman.
