We conducted a single-center, retrospective, observational study of women who underwent hysteroscopic metroplasty for infertility between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2019. Our research was looking for live birth at 18 months post-surgery and identify predictive factors for the success of the procedure, in particular ultrasound criteria, and live-birth rate during total follow up. We included 43 nulliparous patients with an average of 5.2±-2.4 years of primary infertility, including 84.2% patients who had at least one IVF cycle prior to the surgery. The mean age was 37±5 years. The post-surgery live-birth rate was 27.9% at 18 months and 53.5% during the total postoperative follow-up (mean follow-up 4.5±1 years). Pregnancies were obtained spontaneously after surgery for 8/28 (28.6%) patients who were undergoing assisted reproduction technology before surgery. No intra- or postoperative complications were recorded. We did not identify any predictive ultrasound factors, pre- or postoperatively, for a live birth at 18 months post-surgery.
