Objective:
To evaluate bulk limits of intrauterine pathology for „see and treat“ hysteroscopy.

Type of study:
A retrospective observational study.

Setting:

As a „see and treat“ were managed 796 endometrial polyps, 125 submucous myomas, as well as 62 cases of intrauterine synechias.

Conclusions:
endometrial polyps up to 1,5 cm, pedunculated submucous myomas up to 1,0 cm as well as fibroid adhesiones obliterated no more than 1/3 of uterine cavity can be managed as „see and treat“ procedures with a high compliance of the patients.
