Polyps are small overgrowths of the tissues (like a "fleshy mass").
If there are polyps in the Endometrium (the inner lining of the uterus), these must be removed, when a woman is having Infertility or abnormal bleeding or if the polyp is of large size.
Polyps are often not accurately diagnosed by ordinary ultrasound (not even by TVS- where ultrasound probe is inserted inside the vagina).
However, the SSG (SalineSonoGraphy) is an excellent method to diagnose the polyps. SSG is a procedure like TVS but here with the help of a narrow tube, saline is introduced inside the uterus through the vagina.
The picture reveals the SSG of a woman suffering from Infertility.
- Yellow Arrow- Uterus.
- Red Arrow- Saline inside the Endometrium (the black coloured area).
- Green Arrow- The Polyp.
- Blue Arrow- The saline inside the abdomen (means the Fallopian tubes are Open).
We are planning to post her for Hysteroscopy for removal of the Polyp.
