Is endometrial ablation possible with bicornuate uterus?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 03/02/2017

In general, endometrial ablation techniques are contraindicated in women with an abnormal-shaped uterus. However, a study published in 2009 by the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) presented two cases of bicornuate uteri suffering from heavy menstrual period that were successfully treated with EA.

The report explains that, even though EA is possible, each uterine cavity has to be treated separately. It is possible nowadays thanks to the use of hysteroscope, which allows proper adjustment of the procedure.
