Abstract

The incidence of congenital anomalies of the uterus has generally been obtained from studies of women undergoing evaluation for infertility, and has been reported as 1-10%. However, the true incidence of uterine malformations is not known. This study reviews hysterosalpingograms obtained for evaluation of tubal closure after transcervical sterilization in normal multiparous women using methylcyanoacrylate and the FEMCEPT device. Of the 840 hysterosalpingograms studied, 16 congenital uterine anomalies were identified, for an incidence of 1.9%. The presence of anomalies in this population of women may more closely represent the incidence of congenital uterine anomalies in the general population.
