Abstract:
A 32-year old gravida 0 was noted to have a persistent echo dense reflection on her transvaginal ultrasound after undergoing saline infused sonohysterography during IVF work-up. Diagnostic hysteroscopy discovered a 1-cm remnant of a J-wire embryo transfer catheter embedded in a false passage created just below the apparently normal uterine cavity.
