Background/Aims: To investigate the reproductive outcome after hysteroscopic resection of uterine septum in women with septate uterus and otherwise idiopathic primary infertility. Methods: Sixty-eight patients with septate uterus and idiopathic primary infertility were included in this prospective observational study. All patients underwent hysteroscopic metroplasty with scissors under general anesthesia. Main outcome measures were clinical pregnancy rate, live birth and abortion rate at 12 months' follow-up and at mean follow-up time. Results: At 12 months' follow-up, the clinical pregnancy rate, the live birth rate and the abortion rate were 44% (30/68), 36.8% (25/68) and 16.6% (5/30), respectively. At total follow-up time, the overall pregnancy rate, the live birth rate and the abortion rate were 53.8% (35/65), 41.5% and 14.2% (7/35), respectively, while the stillbirth rate was 2.8% (1/35). Conclusion: Hysteroscopic metroplasty in women with septate uterus and unexplained infertility could improve clinical pregnancy rate and live birth rate in patients with otherwise unexplained infertility. If such a patient is looking for a spontaneous pregnancy, this is more likely to occur during the first 15 months following the procedure.
