Wedge metroplasty for the septate uterus: an update.


Journal Article

Twenty-one patients with septate uteri and 2 patients with a T-shaped uterine anomaly and recurrent abortions underwent wedge metroplasty during the period from September 1978 to August 1983. Thirteen patients had a characteristic history of one or more abortions associated with the septate uterus and absence of other metabolic and endocrine abnormalities. Ten other patients, including the two with a T-shaped uterine anomaly, either had one or more abortions of an uncharacteristic nature with absence of other abnormalities or had one or more characteristic abortions in addition to the presence of other metabolic, endocrine, or surgically correctable disease. The application of wedge metroplasty for the surgical reconstruction of the uterus yielded equally gratifying results in both groups with approximately two thirds of the patients having a term delivery or carrying a pregnancy in the third trimester.
