Laparoscopic Strassman’s metroplasty for bicornuate uterus – is it relevant?
A 24-year-old woman with a bicornuate uterus and poor reproductive outcomes underwent laparoscopic Strassman’s metroplasty. The procedure was completed safely within 180 minutes with minimum blood loss. At follow-up hysteroscopy and laparoscopy 2 months later, minimal adhesions in the pelvis were noted and removed. There were no synechiae in the uterine cavity.
It is concluded that laparoscopic metroplasty is a safe and relevant alternative to conventional abdominal metroplasty, with minimal adhesion formation.
