Abstract

Dextran 70, a commonly used distension medium for diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy, is difficult to handle because of its high viscosity, which makes manual instillation cumbersome. We have developed an electric pump that facilitates the instillation of this distension medium at hysteroscopy. This new device is safe and easy to use, and improves the view of the uterine cavity during the procedure. Our initial experience using this pump in 43 hysteroscopic procedures is encouraging.
