Chronic endometrial inflammation, endometrial erosion and vascular dilatation are usually prominent characteristics in cases with polyp(s). Abnormal bleeding is a frequent symptom due to vascular fragility and surface erosion. Tubocornual polyps interfere with oocyte/embryo transport and implantation. Trials have shown the effectiveness of hysteroscopic polypectomy in enhancing fertility. Using appropriate instruments and techniques, further to a suitable training, hysteroscopic polypectomy can be performed in the office setting without limitations of size, location, histological structure, and number of polyps. The surgical removal of big polyps by shavers and morcellators can reduce learning curve and increase patient safety.
