Iatrogenic secondary infertility causes by residual intrauterine fetal bone after midtrimester abortion



Iatrogenic secondary infertility causes by residual intrauterine fetal bone after midtrimester abortion



American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology 176(2): 369-370



Eleven women with secondary infertility had ultrasonographic findings of intrauterine calcification. Infertility developed in all women after operative termination of midtrimester pregnancy. Dilation and curettage or hysteroscopic removal confirmed residual fetal bony fragments. The removal of these bony fragments was associated with therapeutic success for infertility.
