Abstract

The septate uterus is the most common of all the uterine anomalies, accounting for about 35 % of all uterine anomalies. It is associated with recurrent miscarriage and adverse pregnancy outcomes, including preterm delivery. The role of the septate uterus in infertility is controversial. It occurs in 1 % of the fertile population, 3 % of the infertility population, and 5.3 % of the recurrent miscarriage population. The best modalities for diagnosing a septate uterus include a 3D ultrasound, with or without saline infusion, and an MRI. Hysteroscopic metroplasty improves reproductive outcomes in women with recurrent miscarriage and is a simple, well-tolerated procedure with a low complication rate.
