Abstract

The use of real time ultrasound as an aid in gynecological procedures is becoming common. It has been found helpful during difficult therapeutic abortions, removal of intrauterine contraceptive devices, and for detecting complications during and after therapeutic abortion. A 25-year-old primigravida with missed abortion was admitted for dilatation and curettage. During the procedure, suspicion of false route arose. Real time ultrasonography confirmed the diagnosis and successful recurrettage under ultrasound monitoring was performed. We suggest the use of ultrasound in every difficult and complicated curettage.
