Comparison of the ESHRE-ESGE and ASRM classifications of Müllerian duct anomalies in everyday practice.
Bottom Line: The percentages of all congenital malformations and results of the differentiation between the anomaly and norm were obtained after excluding the confounding original ESHRE-ESGE criterion of dysmorphic uterus (internal indentation <50% uterine wall thickness).K/ZDS/003821).The authors have no competing interests to declare.

Mentions: A total of 388 patients were eligible, and 262 were included (Fig. 1). One patient was excluded from the analysis because the ultrasound scan quality was insufficient for diagnosis. Table II presents the demographic and clinical characteristics of the study population. Congenital genital tract anomalies were diagnosed in 43 (16.5%) and 58 (22.5%) of the 261 patients according to the ASRM and ESHRE–ESGE systems (Table II). Septate and arcuate uterus were the most common malformation (16 and 15 of 43 cases, respectively) diagnosed by the ASRM classification, and septate and bicorporeal uterus were the most common malformations according to the ESHRE–ESGE classification (44 and 10 of 58 cases, respectively). The results of classification of congenital anomalies, including the anatomy of the uterus, cervix and vagina by the ESHRE–ESGE classification in relation to the ASRM classification are shown in Table III.Table II
