OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate and compare the diagnostic yield of conventional endocervical curettage (ECC) with fabric-based ECC in a consistent physician group. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective case-control study of patients who underwent ECC both before and after introduction of a fabric-based ECC device. Histologic examination of curettings was categorized as satisfactory, limited, or inadequate. The Kruskall-Wallis test was used to compare proportions of gross descriptions and final diagnoses between groups...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to compare pain, anxiety, and satisfaction between women, who listened to music, and those who did not during loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Participants were randomly assigned into two groups. In group 1 (music), the participants listened to relaxing instrumental music through the stereo headset from the time of arrival at the preoperative waiting room until the procedure completed. For group 2 (control), the participants underwent LEEP without music listening...

OBJECTIVES: Eight percent of women have vulvodynia (VD), a chronic pain disorder with unknown etiology. The aim of our study was to assess the efficacy of given VD treatments measured by numerical rating scale (NRS) for pain and patients' quality of life. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Study material consisted of a retrospective VD patient cohort (N = 70). Data were collected by postal questionnaires and review of the medical records. RESULTS: We report here a statistically significant reduction in NRS only with combination of therapies (median NRS before treatments 8 vs median NRS 4 after treatments, p < ...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to estimate the risk of high-grade cervical and vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN/VAIN 2+) and cancer among women treated surgically for high-grade vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (HGVIN) and vulvar cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of women who underwent surgery for HGVIN/vulvar cancer between 2006 and 2010. Univariate and multivariate analyses using stepwise selection were used to identify correlates of abnormal cytology after treatment for VIN and vulvar cancer...

OBJECTIVES: The aims of the study were to describe and to assess the size of labia minora in normal women, including the women's perception of their genitals to offer better counseling to the women seeking for labiaplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional study was undertaken in the outpatient clinic at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Kolding Medical Center between May 2012 and October 2013, when study participants were recruited in connection with their routine visits...

OBJECTIVES: Human papillomavirus is a multifocal infection that can involve the cervix, vagina, vulva, anus, and oropharynx. Our study aimed to determine whether standard sexual history questions regarding anal intercourse identify women participating in anal-related sexual practices. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was conducted at the dysplasia clinic of a large academic medical center. Women presenting with human papillomavirus-related cervical, vulvar, or vaginal abnormalities were eligible...

OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to investigate the co-prevalence of cervical and oropharyngeal human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in patients with HPV-related high-grade disease of the uterine cervix (high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion [HSIL]). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a prospective cohort study, women with abnormal cervical cytology admitted to our colposcopy units received HPV testing of the uterine cervix and the oropharynx via smear. From a subset of patients, oral lavage was collected to compare detection rates of HPV DNA between lavage and swab...

OBJECTIVE: This study included women attending primary health care units in Botucatu, São Paulo, Brazil, to assess the cervicovaginal levels of human β-defensin (hBD) 1, 2, 3, and 4 during Chlamydia trachomatis infection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Cervicovaginal samples were collected for Pap testing and assessing the presence of infection by C. trachomatis, human papillomavirus, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and Trichomonas vaginalis. Vaginal smears were taken to evaluate local microbiota...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate p16, cytokeratin 7 (CK7), and Ki-67 immunoexpressions in low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL), looking for differences among cases that progress to high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, maintain LSIL, or regress. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty-six LSIL biopsies were studied. In the follow-up, a second biopsy showed 28.7% regression, 37.9% LSIL, and 33.4% progressed to high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion...

OBJECTIVE: Numerous new alternative digital colposcopy techniques have been developed, of which multimodal hyperspectroscopy (MHS) showed a high sensitivity in previous studies. The objective of this prospective single-center cohort study was to evaluate the clinical value of MHS for detecting high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia in a colposcopy referral population and colposcopy follow-up population, to assess whether MHS could be safely used to improve care for women at risk for high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia...

OBJECTIVE: Barriers to cervical cancer screening in low-resource settings include lack of accessible, high-quality services, high cost, and the need for multiple visits. To address these challenges, we developed a low-cost, intravaginal, optical cervical imaging device, the point-of-care tampon (POCkeT) colposcope and evaluated whether its performance is comparable with a standard-of-care colposcope. MATERIALS AND METHODS: There were 2 protocols, which included 44 and 18 patients...
