What are polyps, their symptoms and causes
Polyps in the uterus are endometrial hyperplasia when in some
areas of the endometrium is the growth of the mucous. Polyps are

a woman, as a rule, is an excess of estrogen and a lack
progesterone. Also combined with hormonal disorders
They also have various inflammatory processes in the genitals, and
mechanical damage, trauma during childbirth, frequent abortions
(effects), diagnostic curettage.
There are several types of polyps: ferrous, fibrous,
fibro-glandular and the most dangerous adenomatous. Upon detection

determine the state of polypous tissue cells, if it

How to remove uterine polyp – methods, techniques
The modern method that most effectively produces
endometrial polyp removal is hysteroscopy followed by
curettage of the cervix and uterus (polypectomy and
curettage), as well as subsequent histological examination
removed material. It is also possible to use a separate
diagnostic curettage or laser removal of polyps.
Such factors as the size of the polyp, its structure, age
endometrium, causes of polyp development, and
the presence of metabolic and endocrine diseases in a woman is determined and
tactics of the patient.
If a woman has fibrous polyps, they must be

hormonal imbalance and after surgical
Intervention is indicated by hormone therapy.
- In cancer-threatening polyps, adenomatous, in women

Uterine Hysteroscopy – Polyp Removal
If a woman is going to have an operation to remove a polyp, she should
go to the clinic, where modern
advances in medical technology and doctors of high
professional level who use therapeutic hysteroscopy
uterus to remove polyp.
This is a modern method of examination of the uterus, and removal from
minimal complications without serious consequences for the body
women, this is a gentle procedure because it is performed under
visual control of the operating physician. To make the operation
was successful, there was a good visualization of the entire cavity and polyp,
it is best to perform hysteroscopy after menstruation, but not later
10 days of the menstrual cycle. 6 hours before hysteroscopy
take neither drinks nor food to prevent nausea after
Hysteroscopy of the uterus – removal of polyps is performed under the general
anesthesia, less often under local. Surgery to remove a polyp in the uterus
begins with the introduction of a hysteroscope into the uterine cervix – a thin, flexible
tube with a video camera at the end that transfers the image to
monitor. Next, an examination of the uterus,
determined by the location of the polyp, its size, quantity
neoplasms, followed by a special tool available on
hysteroscope, remove the polyp, then remove the tissue
sent to the laboratory for research.
Leg polyps are to be removed by “unscrewing”, and
the place where the tumor was attached or the polyp bed
cryogenically treated or cauterized by electrocoagulation,
and also a laser can be used – this is produced for
destruction of pathological tissues in order to avoid repeated
sprawl, recurrence of the disease. The duration of hysteroscopy from 10
min to 30 min, depending on the state of the endometrium. Read about
condition after hysteroscopy.
Nearly 30% of polyp cases recur after removal,
therefore, a very important condition for the operation is
minimal trauma and thorough coagulation (burning)
polyp bed. When a woman is offered a simple diagnostic
curettage without hysteroscopy, in this case the doctor works
blindly and remove the leg of the polyp is impossible, so the best
make hysteroscopy followed by scraping. Still
in many medical institutions there are no modern hysteroscopes yet
and trained personnel, therefore, separate diagnostic
scraping is still used, although less and less.
To date, diagnostic curettage is considered
absolutely useless procedure regarding the treatment of polyps in
uterus. That is, you must first make a hysteroscopy, “tear off”
polyp, cauterize the pedicle, and then conduct a diagnostic
curettage but with the aim of getting the rest of the endometrium to
make sure it is “normal” or abnormal.
Scraping is very often done on urgent indications,
when against the background of polyps or endometrial hyperplasia, there is a strong
bleeding, in this case, such a forced procedure
prevents severe blood loss. In this case, scraping is not with

Laser removal of uterine polyps
Today, this method is used only in Moscow, but
in the near future will have to be used in every city – this

to have children. Since pregnancy after laser removal is possible
more likely. In the centers where modern are used

uterus), endometrial hyperplasia, intrauterine synechia.
This is the most effective and gentle treatment method, since the doctor
controls the depth of penetration of the laser in layers, preventing
injury, reducing the recovery period, reduced
blood loss, since the laser is sealing the vessels, the procedure does not leave
cicatrices, which is favorable for future pregnancy,
recovery period after surgery 6-8 months.
Selection after removal of the polyp
What is considered normal after removal of polyps

In any case, the true reason for the occurrence of such
neoplasm to conduct prophylactic treatment after
In the first 3 days after surgery, you should take No-mash 3 p / day,
to relax the muscles of the uterus to eliminate such a phenomenon
like a hematometer – a collection of blood in the uterus from a neck spasm.
Given that polyps often have an inflammatory nature,
doctors prescribe short courses of anti-inflammatory
preventive therapy after operation
The histology results, which are ready in about 10 days,
be sure to discuss with your doctor and they should

If the cause of polyp growth is hormonal failure, and polyps
glandular and glandular-fibrous, doctors may prescribe
hormones – gestagens, such as Duphaston, Norkolut,
Utrozhestan. Hormonal oral contraceptive drugs –
Yarin, Janine, Jess, Regulon, Dimia.
A woman can also refer to a homeopath or herbalist,
for the possible appointment of prophylactic treatment to such not

the formation of a puncture of the uterine wall, which can be when loose
wall or poor extension. Large perforations accounted for
suture, and small overgrown independently.
If there is a dramatic cessation of bleeding after
