To date, a comprehensive review on the safety and effectiveness of hysteroscopic metroplasty for T-shaped uterus is still missing. To provide a robust synthesis of the available studies investigating reproductive outcomes after hysteroscopic metroplasty for T-shaped uterus. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis (CRD42019143291), using the proportion method with 95% confidence interval (CI). Statistical heterogeneity was assessed by Higgins test (I2). We included 11 cohort studies embedding 937 women who underwent hysteroscopic metroplasty. After surgery, the pooled percentage of live birth was 44.54% (95% CI, 36.12%-53.12%; I2 = 46.22%) and 56.88% (95% CI, 46.48%-66.98%; I2 = 36.38%) in women with primary infertility and recurrent miscarriage, respectively. In women with recurrent miscarriage, the pooled proportion of miscarriage was 21.46% (95% CI, 15.09%-28.61%; I2 = 30.18%). The pooled clinical pregnancy proportion in women with primary infertility was 57.19% (95% CI, 43.83%-70.03%; I2 = 77.81%). The pooled rate of surgical complications was 0.65% (95% CI, 0.20%-1.33%; I2 = 11.44%). The hysteroscopic correction of T-shaped uteri was associated with high live birth rate and low miscarriage rate, both in case of primary infertility and recurrent miscarriage. Hysteroscopic metroplasty can be considered a safe and effective strategy to improve reproductive outcomes in case of T-shaped uterus.
