Abstract

Injection of the endometrial cavity with isotonic solutions during transvaginal sonography was used to confirm the presence and location of endometrial polyps. Fourteen infertility patients, 13 of them asymptomatic, had polyps detected in this manner. Confirmation and treatment took place via hysteroscopy. Potential indications for this readily available and inexpensive technique vary from infertility to menometrorrhagia.
