Hysterosalpingo foam sonography
HyFoSy is an outpatient ultrasound examination that allows us to confirm the permeability of the Fallopian tubes and examine the contours of the uterine cavity. We als look at other factors that are important such as the condition of the cervix, the anatomy of the uterus and ovaries

HyFoSy


Hysterosalpingo foam sonography
HyFoSy is an outpatient ultrasound examination that allows us to confirm the permeability of the Fallopian tubes and examine the contours of the uterine cavity.
As a contrast agent for HyFoSy we use an inert sterile gel foam, the advantages of which over a saline solution (SIS) are greater contrast and a greater accuracy of the examination.
HyFoSy is a safe and well-tolerated examination, does not require hospitalisation or the use of a general anaesthetic, X-rays or contrast agent containing iodine.
The reliability of HyFoSy is comparable to that of HSG and HyCoSy.
One condition for the examination is the abscense of pregnancy or possible pregnancy and the abscense of infection.
Difficulties with the examination and the interpretation of the results may arise in the event of a narrowing of the cervical canal and spamsm of muscle and tubes, etc. In obese patients, echogenicity is limited.
The results of the examination are available immediately, the results are best interpreted directly during the examination (compared with HSG, the photo documentation is less informative).
The HyFoSy examination is less reliable than Laparoscopy with chromoperturbation (around 10-20% of Fallopian tubes that are actually permeable are not confirmed), but the advantage is the lack of a need for hospitalisation and general anaesthetic.
Cost of the service: health insurance companies reimburse this service starting from July 2017. The cost for the patiënt is around 60 €

The HyFoSy examination can be ordered directly from the reception of GYN-Fert. 02/2810956 or 02/2219941
