Movie: Hysteroscopic injection of local anaesthetic

Hysteroscopic surgery does not have to be done under general anaesthesia. Not only is the womb cavity relatively insensitive to stimuli, but if required, it is also possible to anaesthetise the womb with local anaesthetic injections. Procedures such as hysteroscopic polypectomy, myomectomy and even endometrial ablation can thus be done as an "office" procedure. The patient in this clip when on to have an endometrial resection.
