Aims: Unicornuate uterus is one of the congenital anomalies of female reproductive system causing many important complications such as hematometra, endometriosis, torsion and ectopic pregnancy. Endometrial cavity in the rudimentary horn and small cavity of the uterus are the most important causes of these complications. Between referring to gynecologic clinics in emergency situations such as abortion, preterm labor, extra-uterus pregnancy, and in non-emergency such as infertility and endometriosis, there are many abnormalities in the reproductive system, some of which are associated with abnormalities in the urinary system; Therefore, trying to treat the uterus greatly resolves one of the problems of obstetrics and gynecology. In this study, a new method of coronoplasty surgery was introduced in the unicornuate uterus with the rudimentary horn.
Patient & Methods: This study is a case report that was done in 2013. A 22-year-old woman referred to sarem women’s hospital for secondary infertility and undergoing diagnostic laparoscopy and the surgeon realized the unicornuate uterus with the rudimentary horn. In this patient, the rudimentary horn was not cut off and during a new surgical procedure called coronoplasty, the rudimentary horn was connected to the uterus major horn and was reconstructed as a larger uterus.
Conclusion: Coronoplasty is novel and effective surgery method for reconstruction of unicornuate uterus with rudimentary horn.
