We investigated the frequency of pathology, especially intrauterine adhesions, after instrumental evacuation within 24 hours of delivery in a prospective observational intervention study on 100 women where a "see and treat" hysteroscopy was performed after 3-4 months. There were two possible etiology groups: intrauterine adhesions (classified according by European Society for Gynecologic Endoscopy (ESGE) grades I-IV) and residual tissue (classified as minimal and considerable). Adhesions were found in 18% of patients: ESGE I-II in 13% and ESGE III-IV in 5%. Residual tissue was present in 33%: minimal in 23% and considerable in 10%. There were 6% who had both mild adhesions and minimal residual tissue, while 43% of the women had normal intrauterine findings. Of the women 32% were symptomatic (spotting, bleeding). Only residual tissue correlated with symptoms (r = 0.376; p<0.001). There is a high prevalence of acquired intrauterine pathology (57%) in women who require early instrumental evacuation.
