Asherman Syndrome

Treatments for Asherman Syndrome

Treatments for Asherman syndrome involve surgery to cut out and remove adhesions or scar tissue in the uterus. This surgery usually utilizes a hysteroscopy, which uses small devices and a camera that are placed into the uterus through the cervix, to remove the scar tissue.

After the tissue is removed, the uterine cavity must remain open while it heals so that the adhesions do not return. Doctors may place a small balloon inside the uterus for a few days to keep the adhesions from reforming and/or prescribe estrogen therapy while the lining of the uterus heals. If there is an infection, the doctor may prescribe an antibiotic treatment.
