Intrauterine adhesions known as Asherman's syndrome evolve after trauma to the basal layer of the endometrium usually secondary to curettage of a recently pregnant uterus. The lesions range from minor to severe cohesive adhesions that affect menstrual function and fertility. Operative hysteroscopy is the mainstay of diagnosis, classification and treatment of the intrauterine adhesions. Significantly obliterated cavity may require multiple hysteroscopic adhesiolysis to achieve a satisfactory anatomical and functional result. Operative hysteroscopy for selective curettage of residual trophoblastic tissue instead of nonselective conventional curettage may prevent intrauterine adhesions.
