Hello, I am Dr Rakhi Gupta I am an Obstetrician & Gynaecology practising in New Delhi. Today we are going to discuss our common topic that is laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. As we are commonly heard laparoscopy and hysteroscopy have a big role these days in gynae management. They can be diagnostic as well as the therapeutic that which we can use them as a part of a diagnostic tool or in order to treat any problem. Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy generally are done together or they may be done separately as per the requirement. They can be done as an office cystoscopy or it can be done under sedation or under general anaesthesia if combined with laparoscopy. So the purpose of diagnosis is visualisation of the abdominal contents via the laparoscopy, we can look over the lower organs that are the uterus, the tubes, the ovaries, the pouches which are adjacent to the uterus, the health of the rectal area as well as a bladder and in case of any disease it can be corrected such as we can manage difference cysts, different myomas operatively. Hysteroscopy is a direct visualisation of the uterine cavity by the means of a laparoscope, so it can show the health of the vagina, the cervix, the uterus and the kind of endometrial. It can be also used for resection of myomas, the fibroids, any septa, any abnormal polyp or removal of any misplaced copper-T inside the uterus. It is a very common procedure, very safe and in case of any issues you should always discuss a doctor for this option, which is a quick procedure and also it has an early recovery and an early discharge from the hospital. The person returns back to work at a very minimum time. Thank you, in case of any consultation or any query regarding this please contact me through Lybrate.
