Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a series of 38 patients with intra-uterine devices with lost strings where hysteroscopic aid was required after routine retrieval procedures failed. Thirty-five intra-uterine devices could be removed easily with hysteroscope. In one patient a fragmented Lippes Loop was removed piecemeal hysteroscopically. Laparotomy was required in only one patient, for an extra-uterine Copper T. Hysteroscopy is thus a simple, safe and effective method for removing misplaced intra-uterine devices.
