Many patients with an arcuate uterus will not experience any reproductive problems and do not require any surgery. In patients with recurrent pregnancy loss thought to be caused by an arcuate uterus hysteroscopic resection can be performed. Differential diagnosis. The major differential diagnosis is the uterine septum. arcuate uterus differential diagnosis Continued testing and identification of arcuate uterus, is thus important for endometriosis patients, as potential resection of midline prominence may be a significant step for treatment of endometriosis
For example, two sides of the uterus can come together, cause the middle portion to melt away. Or your uterus can have a normalappearing exterior, but heart shaped interior, with a dip extending from the top of the uterus (the fundus) into the cavity. A minor dip like that is called an arcuate cavity. arcuate uterus differential diagnosis
ICD10: Q51. 810 Short Description: Arcuate uterus Long Description: Arcuate uterus This is the 2018 version of the ICD10CM diagnosis code Q51. 810 Valid for Submission The code Q51. 810 is valid for submission for HIPAAcovered transactions. The group involving arcuate uterus is characterized by mild indentation of the endometrium at the uterine fundus. It is the outcome of a near total resorption of the uterovaginal septum. There is no difference in clinical pregnancy rate between women with arcuate uteri and women with a normal uterus. Group 1 consisted of 83 transfer cycles performed in 76 patients with a diagnosis of arcuate uterus. The mean depth of the fundal indentation was 5. 43 1. 81 mm (range: 49. 5 mm). Group 2 consisted of 378 transfer cycles performed in 354 control patients with a normal uterine cavity. arcuate uterus differential diagnosis The arcuate uterus is a form of a uterine anomaly or variation where the uterine cavity displays a concave contour towards the fundus. Normally the uterine cavity is straight or convex towards the fundus on anteriorposterior imaging, but in the arcuate uterus the myometrium of the fundus dips into the cavity and may form a small septation. Vascular supply of the uterus is primarily the uterine artery, which approaches the uterus at the level of cervix and lower uterine segment. Branches of uterine artery, the arcuate arteries extend inwards and run circumferentially between the outer and the middle third of myometrium.
