The first hysteroscopy in the Ukraine was performed in the mid-1980s by groups of enthusiasts in clinics at medical universities. In those years, the main medium for visualization was carbon dioxide and, as a rule, Storz hysteroflators were used. Even in those early years, hysteroscopy fans performed almost all the different intrauterine surgeries, including myomectomy.

In connection with the emergence of deaths due to gas embolism, in the early 90’s, the ubiquitous transition to liquid hysteroscopy began. As a rule, in those years hysteroscopy was an examination of the uterine cavity by a single-channel hysteroscope without an instrumental canal. After examining the cavity, the curettage of the uterine cavity was performed. Despite the primitiveness and low quality information, this practice persisted until the early 2000s and is still preserved in few clinics. Since the beginning of the 2000s, monopolar hysteroresectoscopy began to develop actively. Since that time, hundreds and thousands of hysteroresectoscopies have been performed by individual enthusiasts. As a medium, glucose or balanced amino acidcarbohydrate solutions of low viscosity were used. (read more in the newsletter…)
