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 major problem of the ESHRE–ESGE classification is its classification of the most common morphological forms and possible impact for their management. In our opinion, the thickness of the uterine wall is an inappropriate morphological indicator of disorders from a methodological point of view (Ludwin et al., 2014b,c; Fig. 5). The mean thickness of the anterior and posterior walls suggested as temporary reference values (Grimbizis et al., 2014) generate overdiagnosis of septate uterus, as we expected previously (Traiman et al., 1996; Youm et al., 2011; Ludwin et al., 2014c).Figure 5
