When a polyp is visualized during a diagnostic hys-teroscopy performed with a 3-mm flexible hysteroscope, the cervix can then be dilated to 5 mm or 6 mm if necessary, and the polyp can be removed using a Randall stone forceps inserted to the area where the polyp was visualized.
Our basic instrument tray for diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy, therefore, consists of an open-sided speculum; a series of Hagar dilators; a single-tooth tenaculum; a stainless steel or glass medicine cup; polyp forceps and Randall stone forceps; 9-inch ring forceps; two surgical towels; a 10-cc control syringe; a 22-gauge spinal needle; and 10 4-by-4-inch sponges.
