Cryptomenorrhea with cervicovaginal aplasia: endoscopic transfundal development of the lower genital tract
The current case series was done to evaluate the feasibility of transfundal hysteroscopy (TFH) in helping the development of new cervical canal in cases with cervical aplasia. Five cases with obstructive cervicovaginal agenesis with hematometra were included in this report. Laparoscopic-guided TFH was done in conjunction with endoscopic canalization to all cases. Additional retropubic balloon vaginoplasty (BV) was needed in ... Read more
