Hysteroscopic Polyp Treatment

The hysteroscope is a telescopic instrument that allows direct examination of the inside of the uterus. The procedure can be done under general anesthesia in the hysteroscopy clinic-outpatient setting or in the operating room and usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes.

The instrument is inserted into the cervix. Some fluid is injected into the uterine cavity to provide vision and open the uterus. The hysteroscope is connected to a light source that allows the surgeon to view the cavity. If there is a small polyp in the uterus, it can be removed using an instrument attached to the hysteroscope - this procedure is called a polypectomy.

Hysteroscopic Polypectomy

If it has been decided at your clinic appointment that general anesthesia is required for your surgery, this procedure will allow you to “sleep” for approximately 15 to 30 minutes. This procedure will be performed by an anesthesiologist in the operating room - you will fall asleep very quickly (with intravenous anesthetic medication).

How should I prepare for hysteroscopy?

Do not stop using birth control pills before surgery. If you have any doubts about being pregnant during the surgery, please inform your doctor, a pregnancy test will be requested. Please note that a negative pregnancy test does not always exclude a very early pregnancy.

Before Surgery

You will be asked to come for an examination about a week before your surgery to explain the procedure and check your general health. You will have weight and blood pressure control. If you need other tests before surgery, they will be arranged.

In the clinic

If you have a cold or sore throat, you should inform the nurse or doctor, this may result in the cancellation of your procedure until you recover. If you haven't done this yet, you will also be asked to sign a consent form for the transaction. When it's time to go to the operating room, an attendant will accompany you and deliver you to the operating room.

Serious or frequent risks

The risks will increase if you have had previous uterine surgery (cesarean section, myomectomy) or cervical surgery (cone biopsy). The risks also increase if a polyp (polypectomy) needs to be removed.

Serious risks

  • Uterine perforation (occurs in 7 out of every 1000 people)
  • Pelvic infection
  • Inability to visualize the uterine cavity.
  • Frequent risks
  • Vaginal bleeding and discharge
  • Pain: pelvic and shoulder

Hunger Necessary

It is important that you do not have anything to eat or drink for at least 6 hours before the surgery. This is to reduce the risk of disease during and after the procedure.

For example; If your admission time is 8.00 in the morning, you must be hungry after midnight.

Do not chew gum while fasting. It is essential that an adult is with you for 24 hours following your operation who is aware of the procedure performed.
