From: AAGL practice report: practice guidelines on intrauterine adhesions developed in collaboration with the European Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE)

Source Summary of classification
March et al. [7] Adhesions classified as minimal, moderate, or severe based on hysteroscopic assessment of the degree of uterine cavity involvement.
Hamou et al. [25] Adhesions classified as isthmic, marginal, central, or severe according to hysteroscopic assessment.
Valle and Sciarra [26] Adhesions classified as mild, moderate, or severe according to hysteroscopic assessment and extent of occlusion (partial or total) at HSG.
European Society for Hysteroscopy [27] Complex system classifies IUAs as grades I through IV with several subtypes and incorporates a combination of hysteroscopic and HSG findings and clinical symptoms.
American Fertility Society [28] Complex scored system of mild, moderate, or severe IUAs based on extent of endometrial cavity obliteration, appearance of adhesions, and patient menstrual characteristics based on hysteroscopic or HSG assessment.
Donnez and Nisolle [29] Adhesions classified into six grades on the basis of location, with postoperative pregnancy rate the primary driver. Hysteroscopy or HSG are used for assessment.
Nasr et al. [30] Complex system creates a prognostic score by incorporating menstrual and obstetric history with IUA findings at hysteroscopic assessment.
