Clinical characteristics, laboratory data and postoperative result were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS: Hysteroscopic myomectomy was 884 cases. hysteroscopic polypectomy was 447 cases. Hysteroscopic adhesiolysis was 89 cases. Hysteroscopic adenomyomectomy or adenomyolysis was 66 cases. Hysteroscopic IUD removal was 31 cases. Hysteroscopic ablation for DUB and endometrial hyperplasia was 32 cases. Hysteroscopic septolysis was 18 cases. Hysteroscopic conceptus removal was 6 cases. Mean size of myoma was 3.4 cm. Mean operation time was 47 minutes. Mean deficit of distension media was 193 cc. Average duration of hospitalization was 4.9 days. Average change of Hb. was 1.5 g/dL. Complications of hysteroscopic operation were 16 cases. That is uterine perforation (n=9), hyponatremia (n=2), pulmonary edema (n=2), delayed bleeding (n=2) and bladder perforation (n=1). CONCLUSION: The indication of hysteroscopic op. can be very extended. Pure intramural myoma, subserosal myoma, endometrial polyps, adenomyosis, uterine synechiae, uterine septum, endometrial hyperplasia, DUB and ectopic conceptus can be resected by hysteroscopic operation.
