Women who abort repeatedly sometimes have a partition in their uterine cavity.  This is due to a fibrous tissue in the

centre of the uterus, which divides the uterus into two halves.  This may sometimes interfere with continuation of pregnancy.

Diagnosis of the septum can be made with the help of an X-ray called hysterosalpingogram or with 3-D ultrasonography.

Treatment of the septum is by hysteroscopic septal resection.  An instrument called the hysteroscope is inserted into the uterus and the septum resected with instruments.

Removing the septum can restore the woman’s ability to continue with pregnancy.

Hysteroscopic septal resection can be done as a day care procedure and the patient can go home on the same day itself.
