Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE) have established a common Working Group, under the name CONUTA (CONgenital UTerine Anomalies), with the goal of developing a new updated classiﬁcation system. A scientiﬁc committee (SC) has been appointed to run the project, looking also for consensus within the scientists working in the ﬁeld Congenital uterine anomalies are a common imaging finding, particularly in patients with a history of infertility. Proper classification of these anomalies will affect patient management and help determine whether surgical intervention may be necessary. Pelvic MRI has proved to be a reliable method for delineating congenital uterine anomalies Uterine congenital anomalies have been related with infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, prematurity and other obstetric complications which increase perinatal morbidity and mortality rates 1 duct anomalies.14 MR imaging helps us to evaluate internal and external uterine anatomy in multipl
Cervical abnormalities may be congenital or acquired. Congenital anomalies of the cervix are rarely isolated, and more commonly accompany other uterine anomalies. Various imaging tools have been used in the assessment of Müllerian duct anomalies (MDAs). Currently, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is The most common type of uterine anomalies is arcuate or hypoplastic. Unicornuate or bicornuate uteri are 2 common examples of an arcuate uterus. Up to one-tenth of patients with congenital uterine malformations also have associated anomalies of the urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract, musculoskeletal system, or heart
Congenital uterine anomalies (CUAs) may lead to symptoms such as pelvic pain, prolonged or otherwise abnormal bleeding at the time of menarche, recurrent pregnancy loss, or preterm delivery, and thus may be identified in patients, including adolescents, who present with these disorders Uterine malformations may be associated with other congenital anomalies, which are, frequently, anomalies of the urinary tract . Several imaging techniques are used to diagnose uterine anomalies. Transvaginal ultrasound (2DUS), which provides information on the uterine anatomy mainly in the sagittal and transversal planes of the uterus, has. Congenital anomalies of the female genital tract are alterations in embryonic development due to an interruption or deviation in the ontogenesis of individual organs, or part, of the reproductive tract.

CONGENITAL UTERINE MALFORMATIONS ABSTRACT.mWith the advent of newer imaging techniques, the radi- ulogist is now able to make very precise and accurate diagnoses of con- genital uterine malformations and their complications. Because these anomalies are associated with reproductive dysfunction, they are often discovered during an infertility. Congenital uterine anomalies are malformations of the uterus that develop during embryonic life. Congenital uterine anomalies occur in less than 5% of all women, but have been noted in up to 25% of women who have had miscarriages and/or deliveries of premature babies. When a woman is in her mother's womb, her uterus develops as two separate. Examples of Uterine Malformations and the Imaging of Malformations.

Magnetic resonance imaging is commonly used for the identification and characterization of many pelvic abnormalities. Magnetic resonance provides the most comprehensive and detailed view of the uterus of any imaging modality. This article focuses on the magnetic resonance imaging features used to recognize and describe congenital uterine anomalies and benign conditions of the uterus Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been shown to be effective for the diagnosis of congenital uterine anomalies with sensitivity and specificity up to 100%. The advent of three-dimensional ultrasound has greatly enhanced the ability to diagnose congenital uterine anomalies in an outpatient setting Congenital uterine anomalies (CUAs) are gaining increasing attention in the field of gynaecological ultrasound for a number of reasons: first, they appear to be of relatively high prevalence in both selected and unselected groups of women ; second, they appear to have a significant impact on reproductive outcomes and, on occasion, in adolescent symptomatology ; third, there has been a recent.

Congenital Uterine Anomalies (CUA) are malformations of the uterus which occur during the embryonic development. While CUAs are common, there is still a lot to be learned about the side effects and their impact on a woman's health. Most women with CUA might not experience the symptoms in their day-to-day lives
Congenital uterine anomalies, also called Müllerian duct anomalies, are female reproductive malformations that can increase the risk of infertility or adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as miscarriage, intrauterine growth restrictions and preterm delivery.. According to a study published in Human Reproductive Update, the prevalence of these uterine anomalies is 7.3 percent in the infertile.

Congenital uterine anomalies are the most common anomaly of the female reproductive tract, affecting 3-8 % of fertile and infertile women. Uterine anomalies are traditionally classified as. Congenital Müllerian Anomalies. Müllerian duct anomalies are congenital abnormalities that occur when the Müllerian ducts (paramesonephric ducts) do not develop correctly. This may be as a result of complete agenesis, defective vertical or lateral fusion, or resorption failure. The arcuate uterus is a form of a uterine anomaly or variation. The prevalence of congenital uterine anomalies has been reported as 6.7% in the general population. The unicornuate uterus accounts for 2.4-13% of all Mullerian anomalies and has a prevalence of 1:1000. A unicornuate uterus may be present alone or with a rudimentary horn and 75-90% of rudimentary horns are non-communicating Reproductive outcomes in women with congenital uterine anomalies detected by three-dimensional ultrasound screening.

The association between renal tract and uterine malformations has long been recognized and a high incidence of renal tract anomalies is found in women with congenital uterine malformations [11,12]. Renal tract anomalies have been detected in 30-41 % of women with specific uterine anomalies such as uterine agenesis and unicornuate uterus [13,14] (See Congenital anomalies of the hymen and vagina and Congenital uterine anomalies: Surgical repair.) EMBRYOLOGY, NORMAL ANATOMY, AND HISTOLOGY Embryology — At approximately post-fertilization day 54, the paired müllerian ducts fuse and result in formation of the uterovaginal canal, which is the precursor of the uterine corpus, cervix.
This advantage largely arises from its ability to reconstruct the coronal plane of the uterus, which allows further delineation of many gynecological disorders. 3D imaging of the uterus is now the preferred imaging modality for assessing congenital uterine anomalies and intrauterine device localization -Duplex collecting system is the most common congenital anomaly of the urinary tract ; Renal agenesis with uterine anomaly. A, An enhanced computed tomography image through the upper abdomen reveals right renal agenesis and left renal compensatory hypertrophy Mullerian duct anomalies are a broad spectrum of congenital anomalies of the female genital tract presenting with variable symptoms like infertility, amenorrhoea, dysmenorrhea, pelvic endometriosis, and poor obstetric outcomes. Unicornuate uterus or hemiuterus occurs as a result of abnormal formation or failure of formation of the contralateral part The arcuate uterus is the commonest anomaly in the general and RMpopulation. In contrast, the septate uterus is the commonest anomaly in the infertile population, suggesting a possible association.

Robert's uterus is also known as asymmetric septate uterus and is a rare congenital müllerian duct anomaly. MRI is the best modality to demonstrate the uterine septum, normal external fundal contour, haematometra and haematosalpinx. Early and accurate diagnosis of this condition is important in guiding towards appropriate surgical intervention Congenital uterine anomalies (CUA) are abnormalities of the reproductive organs that occur during the development of a baby in a mother's womb. Women are therefore born with this disorder. The reproductive organs in female babies are formed whilst in their mother's womb, by the fusion of two structures called Müllerian ducts MRI is the gold standard in the evaluation of congenital uterine anomalies. The alignment to the uterus is critical to distinguish between the different congenital anomalies, which may have important treatment and reproductive implications. This means that true coronal imaging to the plane of the uterus must be acquired with great care and. imaging test to definitively characterize uterine congenital anomalies.4 Additional imaging studies are available, and in-clude 3D US, HSG, and sonohysterography. Renal anomalies can be associated with uterine anomalies, and evaluation of the kidneys should be standard in the imaging work-up of such anomalies. referen C es: 1 ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of Müllerian duct anomalies.

Case Discussion. Congenital uterine anomalies occur in 0.1 to 3% of women and are due to abnormal development of the paramesonephric ducts. Failure of fusion of these ducts results in division of the uterus into two horns (bicornuate uterus) if there is partial failure of fusion, and complete duplication of the uterus, cervix and vagina (uterine didelphys) if there is total failure of fusion following diagnosis of a mullerian anomaly, perform additional testing to assess for associated congenital, renal, or urinary tract abnormalities 1,2 Study Summary 3-D ultrasound may diagnose uterine anomalies in women with fertility problem
Congenital uterine anomalies comprise a wide spectrum of variant anatomy. The true prevalence of uterine anomalies has been difficult to assess, with varying reported rates between 0.16% and 10%, often confounded by selection bias or vari-ance in classification schemes.4 Abnormal uterine configurations are typically related to develop accurate test for the assessment of uterine congenital anomalies. Its ability to concomitantly visualized, the external uterine contour with the uterine cavity on the same coronal plan, makes this noninvasive, easy to perform test the procedure of choice for the diag-nosis of uterine anomalies. Keywords: Mullerian Anomalies; 3-Dimensional (3-D However, the embryological and clinical classification [8-10] correlates better among vaginal anomaly, uterine anomaly, and ipsilateral renal agenesis or renal dysplasia with or without ectopic ureter, suggesting the origin and possible clinical presentation and thus leading the diagnostic imaging Uterine congenital anomalies are a collection of dysmorphisms attributable to failure of Müllerian duct development. The Müllerian or Paramesonephric ducts are paired embryological structures that run down the sides of the urogenital ridge which in females become the Uterus and upper one third of the vagina Congenital anomalies of the female genital tract are rare, but important, diagnoses that may present during childhood or adolescence. Abnormalities of the external genitalia, such as common urogenital sinus, cloaca or ambiguous genitalia, tend to be diagnosed at birth or shortly thereafter. These will be managed by a multidisciplinary team of paediatric surgeons, physicians and..
Congenital or acquired uterine anomalies, that distort the uterine cavity are among the several contraindications to IUD placement. Unlike other contraindications which could be easily ruled out by history, physical examination and basic labs, uterine anomalies are better detected with imaging The documentation of congenital uterine anomalies was based on classification of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. The best view for detection of any congenital anomaly is the transverse plane in two dimensional sonography and the coronal view in three dimensional sonography Obstructive uterovaginal anomalies may present after puberty with amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, pelvic pain, recurrent vaginal discharge, or infertility. The evaluation of a patient with a suspected obstructive reproductive anomaly should include a detailed medical history, physical examination, and imaging. Accurate diagnosis is critical to manage. Congenital anomalies of the uterus are defects of uterine development and shape that occur during intrauterine life. Their prevalence is estimated to be less than 5%, but up to a quarter of women. Fascinating congenital abnormalities of the uterus are müllerian duct anomalies. Between the 6th and 11th week of pregnancy, the müllerian ducts fuse to form the fallopian tubes, uterus, proximal two-thirds of the vagina, cervix in a female fetus .Sometimes this fusion doesn't occur properly, leading to defects in the internal reproductive organs
The Center for Congenital Anomalies of the Reproductive Tract, within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, has a multidisciplinary focus with the mission to provide excellent and accurate diagnostic and therapeutic management of birth defects affecting the reproductive organs of girls, adolescents, and adult women Objectives: To demonstrate the value of 3-dimensional (3-D) ultrasound (US) in the diagnosis of congenital uterine anomalies.
