Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To present our experience in hysteroscopic removal of abnormally invasive placenta (AIP) residuals using bipolar energy. DESIGN: Case series. SETTING: University hospital. POPULATION: Sixteen patients with AIP residuals after 17 pregnancies. METHODS: Cases were identified by ultrasound, treated with hysteroscopic bipolar electrosurgery and oral contraceptives, and followed up by ultrasound or hysteroscopy. Nine subsequent pregnancies were described. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES AND RESULTS: Complete removal of AIP residuals was achieved by hysteroscopic bipolar electrosurgery in all cases except one. No peroperative complications occurred. AIP residual recurred in one patient after a subsequent pregnancy and was successfully treated using the same procedure. CONCLUSIONS: AIP residual is a rare condition. Management by hysteroscopic resection using bipolar energy is save and feasible. © 2013 The Authors Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica © 2013 Nordic Federation of Societies of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
