The incidence of pelvic spreading of endometrial cells at diagnostic hysteroscopy was studied comparing the two distension media carbon dioxide (CO(2)) and normal saline (N/Saline). Thirty patients requiring laparoscopy and hysteroscopy were included in this study, the main indication for surgery being subfertility. Hysteroscopy was performed using both CO… CONTINUE READING
