Uterine Polyps D&C and Hysteroscopy
Hi:

When removing a uterine polyp does one do a D&C and use a hysteroscope at the same time.  What is the difference between a D&C and hysteroscope.  Can a polyp be removed just with a hysteroscope or does a D&C also have to be performed?

Thanks

It's excactly the same question i have. Im due to have Hysteroscopy and D&C. Based on related articles, it seems the hysteroscope just does the "scoping" but the D&C (Cutterage) is the instrument that scrapes the polyps. Your posting was back in 2008, did you get your answers?
