Hysteroscopy = looking inside the uterus with a scope

Steps:

  1. Dilate the cervix
  2. Distend the uterus with fluid
  3. Look around, identify pathology, identify tubal ostia, remove pathology if using an operative scope or Myosure or another resectoscope.

Feared complication: Hyponatremia from excessive hypotonic fluid absorption.
