Suggested Office Hysteroscopy Holding Technique to Minimize Delicate Instrument Bending
Keywords:Office hysteroscopy, Holding technique, Spare parts, Maintenance, Expense
OBJECTIVE: Office hysteroscopy is valuable in diagnosing and treating intrauterine pathologies. But the expensive instruments used for operative office hysteroscopy are delicate and prone to be damaged by bending. We are suggesting a method to increase the life time of the equipment and decrease the expenses.
STUDY DESIGN: 43 patients undergoing office hysteroscopy for endometrial polyps and submucous myomas in Gülhane Military Medical Academy in January 2008 - April 2008 are included in this study and applied the new holding technique suggested by Dr. Emre Karaşahin. Departmentally available instruments are used.
RESULTS: All the office procedures were successfully completed, without a single defect on the scissors and forcepses used for the operative office procedures.
CONCLUSION: The technique explained in the text increases the life time of the equipment, and therefore decreases the costs of operations.
