Associate Professor Tsaltas Explains Asherman’s Syndrome

What is Asherman's Syndrome?

Asherman’s Syndrome (also known as intrauterine adhesions) is a condition where the cavity of the uterus develops scar tissue or adhesions. It is a rare but serious condition.

What causes Asherman's Syndrome?

Asherman’s Syndrome occurs as a result of surgery inside the uterus. The most common cause is a curette to treat miscarriage.

What assessment and treatment is available?

Asherman’s Syndrome must be assessed by ultrasound.


After careful assessment and investigations, I will advise on appropriate surgery. In many cases, I am able to perform hysteroscopic surgery under ultrasound guidance.
