Hysteroscopic Removal Of Fetal Bones

Sometimes, a pregnancy at an advanced stage may undergo fetal demise (death). This pregnancy is usually spontaneously aborted by the uterus. Rarely, this pregnancy may persist. The soft tissues get absorbed and the fetal bones remain embedded inside the uterus. We managed such a woman who had stopped menstruating (amenorrhoea) and was being treated for infertility. Ultrasound showed calcification in the uterus and she had even been advised removal of the uterus! By using an operative hysteroscope, we excised all the bones in the uterine cavity. The woman started menstruating spontaneously and she had a spontaneous pregnancy and normal delivery.
