Despite the widespread use of the Internet and the emergence of social networks, diagnostic and surgical hysteroscopy has not been widely used in Ukraine until 2006. Since 2006 there has been a more active development of hysteroscopy, which is connected to the organization of a number of regular conferences devoted to gynecologic endoscopic surgery, with the involvement of international experts. It was 2006 that, in my opinion, became the year of Ukraine for the rapid development of gynecological endoscopy and hysteroscopy in particular.
From 2006 to the present day, the spread of hysteroscopy has steadily increased. To date, many public and private centers have in their arsenal hysteroscopes and hysteroresectoscopes. Since 2012, bipolar hysteroresectoscopy has started to develop actively. Diode lasers have been widely used since 2013. After 2015, shavers appeared in some places. In 2018, the first systems using 3 mm laparoscopic instruments for performing intrauterine manipulation have appeared.
Despite the huge growth spurt that hysteroscopy has had in our country, the issues of training and acquiring new equipment remain urgent. However, all gynecologists understand the importance and benefits of hysteroscopy, which makes 100% incorporation of this technique into our practice a matter of time. I hope, and I am even confident that office hysteroscopy, intrauterine operations in outpatient settings, laser technologies, hysteroscopic embryoscopy and many other kinds of hysteroscopy will become a "stethoscope" of Ukrainian gynecologists in the next five years. Progress is inevitable.
