When correcting a complete uterine septum, it is recommended that one should spare the cervical portion to avoid the possible risk of cervical incompetence. However, it may be difficult to create a communication between the uterine cavities above the internal os. In seven patients with complete septate uterus we incised the cervical portion with Metzenbaum scissors and the corporal portion with microscissors under hysteroscopic guidance. The operating times were shorter and the distension fluid deficit smaller compared with nine historical controls in whom the cervical septum was spared. No intraoperative or obstetric complications were associated with cervical septal section. This modified technique is simple, rapid, safe, inexpensive, and may be considered among the alternative treatments to correct a complete septate uterus.
