Abstract
OBJECTIVE
The purpose of this study was to assess the usefulness of sonohysterography in the detection of abnormalities of the uterine cavity in infertile patients, compared with other diagnostic methods, such as transvaginal sonography, hysterosalpingography and hysteroscopy. METHODS: Three intrauterine pathologies including intrauterine synechiae, endometrial polyp and submucosal myoma, that could be possible causes of infertility were diagnosed. RESULTS: Transvaginal ultrasonography and hysterosalpingography were able to detect 41.7% and 83.3% of uterine pathologies respectively comparing with sonohysterography to detect all of the uterine pathologies. CONCLUSION: Our results show that sonohysterography is easy, inexpensive, well-tolerated and non-invasive technique with high sensitivity in the detection of uterine pathologies. Therefore the use of sonohysterography for the diagnosis of intrauterine pathologies in infertile patients is highly recommended.
