Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Four patients with symptomatic intrauterine retention of fetal bones are discussed. Presenting complaints included infertility, irregular vaginal bleeding, vaginitis, and spontaneous passage of fetal bones. Two patients had uterine anomalies; 1 patient had a retained twin pregnancy. Pelvic ultrasound and x-ray films of the pelvic cavity are helpful in making a diagnosis. Hysteroscopy is invaluable both in confirming the diagnosis and in achieving successful removal of fetal bone.
