Role of Three Dimensional Ultrasound in the Diagnosis of Septate Uterus

2015-11-05 17:53:23 | BioPortfolio


Congenital uterine anomalies are found in 8% of infertile women and 24.5% of infertile women with a history of recurrent miscarriage, with septate and sub-septate uterus being the most common anomalies in these women, Also, septate uterus is the commonest anomaly found in infertile women requiring assisted reproductive technology.

Published data showed improved Cumulative pregnancy rate and live birth rate, and a significant reduction in Miscarriage rate in In Vitro Fertilization women after hysteroscopic metroplasty of both small and large septate compared to non-operated women.

Investigators hypothesized that trans-vaginal three Dimensional Ultrasound will be superior to Hystro-salpingography for the differentiation between arcuate and septate uterus in infertile women scheduled for In Vitro Fertilization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

Inability to reproduce after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Reproductive sterility is permanent infertility.

The process of generating three-dimensional images by electronic, photographic, or other methods. For example, three-dimensional images can be generated by assembling multiple tomographic images with the aid of a computer, while photographic 3-D images (HOLOGRAPHY) can be made by exposing film to the interference pattern created when two laser light sources shine on an object.

The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.

The inability of the male to effect FERTILIZATION of an OVUM after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Male sterility is permanent infertility.
