To evaluate the causes of intrauterine adhesion (IUA) and the efficacy of hysteroscopic adhesiolysis in patients with IUA METHODS: From January 1995 to June 1999, a total of 63 patients with IUA were underwent hysteroscopic adhesiolysis. The patients with IUA only were trying to be pregnant spontaneous whereas, intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) were performed in the patients who have other infertility factors and IUA as well. The data such as the changes of menstrual amount and pattern, fertility, and full-term live birth rate were analyzed. RESULTS: The most common cause of IUA was curettage related problems; after incomplete abortion 20.6%, postpartum bleeding 9.5%, elective abortion 47.6%, missed abortion 11.1%, and for treatment of hydatidiform mole 1.6%. All patients with amenorrhea or oligomenorrhea had improvement of their menstrual patterns. Forty seven patients wanted pregnancy and 31 patients achieved pregnancy (68.4%). Full-term live birth rate 38.3% and there was one placenta accreta in full-term live birth case, which was resolved by postpartum curettage. CONCLUSION: Hysteroscopic adhesiolysis of IUA could be effective for restoring the normal menstrual pattern and fertility.
