A simple surgical technique for unification of a septate uterus is described. The septum and a small strip of fundus are removed with scissors inserted through two small fundal stabs, and the opening is closed with one mattress suture, which forms an anteroposterior suture line no more than 1 cm long. At the end of the operation an intrauterine contraceptive device is inserted to prevent uterine adhesions. The operation has several advantages: (a) it leaves a capacious uterine cavity of normal appearance, (b) it avoids large uterine incisions, and thus the possibility of postoperative adhesions or weak uterine scars, and (c) it avoids possible injury to the cornual ends of the Fallopian tubes.
