Conclusion Particulate matter generated during hysteroscopic electrosurgical vaporization using monopolar and bipolar instruments is heterodisperse and complex in shape. Monopolar vaporization results in particles of a smaller median diameter compared with bipolar vaporization. Both instruments generate 2 distinct populations of particles by surface area. The distribution of particles by volume during hysteroscopic electrosurgery is complex.
