Video Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy

Videolaparoscopy and hysteroscopy is a perfect combination of medical science-surgey and technology.

A long tube like instrument, which has a telescope at its one end is connected to a camera at its opposite end, is introduced into the body through a small hole like incision which is made just below the umbilicus (navel). What ever the telescope sees is transmitted to a monitor/TV, via the camera. When this video laparoscopy is done to see the status of uterus, tubes & ovary, only one hole is enough. It also tells us about tubo ovarian relationship. By introducing dye in the uterus from cervix & seeing it coming out of the tubes from the laparoscope confirms the tubal patency. This investigation along with hysteroscopy is a must before doing superovulation with IUI. Apart from this diagnostic procedure therapeutic laparoscopic surgeries can also be done like separating the adherent tubes and ovaries, removing fibroids (simple uterine tumors) from the outer wall of the uterus and ovarian drilling in patients with polycystic ovaries. Patients with polycystic ovarian disease have large ovaries. They have irregular periods because they do not produce ova/ eggs every month and they also have a tendency to gain weight easily. In these cases through video laparoscopy, punctures are done in the ovaries with the help of electric cautery to promote regular ovulation. This is known as ovarian drilling and it increases the chances of pregnancy significantly.

Hysteroscopy is seeing the uterine cavity from inside with a telescope attached to camera as in laparoscopy. Fibroids or polyp in the uterine cavity can be diagnosed by this procedure and can also be removed by hysteroscopic surgery. It can also be used for removal of the septum, or to cut off the adhesions between endometrial surfaces. Whole hysteroscopic & laparoscopic surgeries be seen live on TV & is recorded on a videocassette or CD, so that can be referred at a later date. Thus video endoscopy, which includes laproscopy & hysteroscopy both and is a very important procedure in infertility management.
