Gynecological endoscopic surgery involves the use of optical instruments designed to identify abnormalities in a woman’s body that may prevent conception. With the advancement in technology and miniaturization along with the sophistication of equipment has made endoscopic surgery one of the most effective fertility treatments. Endoscopy allows identifying any abnormalities that interfere with the woman’s ability to become pregnant.
Infertility is caused by different factors like environmental factors, stress, endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, ovarian cysts, fallopian tube damage, and uterine problems. Depending on the nature of the infertility causes, your gynecologist may recommend various treatments including IVF treatment, acupuncture, medical therapy, drugs, ultrasound aspiration or laparoscopy surgery.
What does endoscopy entail?
Endoscopic surgery is less invasive translating to minimal tissue handling. An incision, several centimeters long, is made in the abdomen. The procedure prevents a future likelihood of major surgeries in cases of ovarian tumors and endometriosis. The modern anesthetic medicine makes the procedure painless. It also wears off quickly and has minimal side effects. In normal situations, a patient spends two to three days in the hospital. In very minor surgeries, the patient can be discharged on the same day the surgery takes place.
Endoscopic Surgery for Successful IVF
IVF Clinic Turkey is doing the best IVF treatment to help couples having a baby. Thorough preparation prior to starting treatment determines the success of treatment. IVF Clinic Turkey utilizes endoscopic surgery to establish the exact infertility cause. This allows diagnosis and improvement of the uterus simultaneously. The uterine lining is very important for effective IVF. Endoscopy evaluates the womb lining to lower any chances of miscarriages that can be caused by IVF. This is achieved by curetting/scrapping of the lining for microscopic assessment. Any abnormalities or infections will be detected and treated for effective IVF.
In some cases, a small telescope may be used to visualize reproductive organs on screen through the navel. This addresses any ovarian abnormalities, tubal infections, pelvic diseases, and uterine factors. If any of these abnormalities are seen, it is immediately addressed for a positive outcome of IVF. Infected tubes filled with fluid need to be detached from the uterus as they prevent embryo implantation. In the case of ovarian adhesion as a result of previous surgeries, pelvic infections or endometriosis, a breakdown of the adhesions is carried out to free the ovaries.
Cysts and fibroids need to be removed before implementing IVF treatment. These procedures require highly skilled professionals in specialized units. Women recover very quickly when the process is carried out efficiently. Endoscopic surgery is very safe. In most cases, a sedative is administered for maximum comfort of the patient. The patient will wake up after about an hour although the effects may be prolonged
Endoscopic Surgery Complications
In most cases, endoscopic surgery is the final test before starting infertility treatment. Like any other surgery, endoscopy may be associated with some risks. However, it poses minimal risks among healthy women with only a possibility of 3 complications out of 1000 surgeries carried out. The complications may include injuries to the uterus, ovaries, urinary bladder, bowel, stomach, or pelvic blood vessels, internal bleeding, skin irritation, reaction to anesthesia and infection. It is not safe to drive or operate machinery immediately after endoscopic surgery.
