Introduction to Office and Operative Hysteroscopy

, Resad Paya Pasic, MD, with co-authors Royshanda C. Smith, MD and Patrick Yeung Jr, MD

Part 1 - Office Hysteroscopy - In this video tutorial we instruct on the setup, equipment and management of office hysteroscopy. The minimal use of anesthesia and the improvements in therapeutic and diagnostic qualities of office hysteroscopy makes it use an attractive alternative to the operating room for both the gynecologic practice and their patients in terms of reduced time and cost efficiencies.

Part 2 - Operative Hysteroscopy This video tutorial will demonstrate the fundamentals including setup and equipment needed to perform office hysteroscopy, the technique of diagnostic hysteroscopy including fluid delivery options and camera orientation inside the uterine cavity and setup, equipment, and technique required to perform operative hysteroscopies, such as polyp or IUD removal.
