Four hundred amnioscopies were performed from April to December 1984 using a 6 mm contact hysteroscope to detect the presence of intrauterine meconium on 360 high risk obstetric patients. During that eight month period, out of 400 clinic patients delivered, 25 cases of intrauterine meconium were identified. Two infants had meconium aspiration. In comparable periods of 1982 and 1983, 320-356 clinic patients were delivered. Ten-twelve infants had meconium aspiration in their respective groups. The technique of contact hysteroscopy was demonstrated to be easy to perform with few, if any, complications.
