Curettage vs. hysteroscopic resection


, : Curettage vs. hysteroscopic resection. Minerva Ginecologica 46(1-2): 1-3

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of curettage vs hysteroscopic resection in the treatment of endometrial polyps. A group of 25 patients were examined and during surgery underwent diagnostic hysteroscopy, curettage of the uterine cavity, control hysteroscopy and resectoscopy in the event of residual polyps. Thirteen cases revealed the total persistence of the polyp after curettage and in 6 cases the polyp was only partially removed; the polyp was detached but not removed from the uterine cavity in 4 cases and the polyp was fully removed using the curette in only 2 cases. The considerable limits of curettage which emerge from this study appear to be linked to three main factors: the localization, nature and size of endometrial polyps. Curettage may therefore now be considered a method which has been surpassed in not only diagnostic but also therapeutic terms by hysteroscopic techniques.
