Answer

Surgical management is not usually necessary in acute endometritis in the obstetric population. Dilation and curettage may be advised for retained products of conception, however. In rare instances of overwhelming infection nonresponsive to conservative therapy, hysterectomy may be necessary as a life-saving intervention. [16]
