Nowadays, hysteroscopy guided operations are widely used in the diagnosis and treatment of intrauterine pathologies. Although hysteroscopy is a safe and short procedure, particularly operative hysteroscopy brings along many risks that anesthetists should consider about. In this report, we presented two cases in which pulmonary edema, hyponatremia and venous air embolism developed during the operative hysteroscopy, and aimed to draw attention to the management of these complications.
