BACKGROUND: The standard treatment for cervical adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) is hysterectomy, which is a more aggressive treatment than that used for squamous intraepithelial lesions. Several previous studies have primarily demonstrated that the loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) is as safe and effective as cold knife cone (CKC) biopsy when AIS is unexpectedly found in a loop excision. This study evaluated the safety of LEEP as the initial treatment for patients with AIS who were strictly selected and evaluated before and after loop resection...

In most industrialized countries, screening programs for cervical cancer have shifted from cytology (Pap smear or ThinPrep) alone on clinician-obtained samples to the addition of screening for human papillomavirus (HPV), its main causative agent. For HPV testing, self-sampling instead of clinician-sampling has proven to be equally accurate, in particular for assays that use nucleic acid amplification techniques. In addition, HPV testing of self-collected samples in combination with a follow-up Pap smear in case of a positive result is more effective in detecting precancerous lesions than a Pap smear alone...

Objective: Cervical cancer (CC) screening by Pap smears has led to a decrease in the incidence of CC worldwide. Indeed, the incidence of CC in Switzerland is very low; however, there is a lack of data to evaluate the efficiency of the Pap smear as a screening tool. Until now, only Pap smears have been used and other methods such as the presence of an infection with HPV have not been integrated into the routine screening. The aim of this study is to evaluate trends in the incidence of CC and its precancerous lesions in Central Switzerland, which represents a rural region, with those in urban regions and the entire country of Switzerland...

BACKGROUND: Early during human development, the trophoblast lineage differentiates to commence placentation. Where the placenta contacts the uterine decidua, extravillous trophoblast (EVT) cells differentiate and invade maternal tissues. EVT cells, identified by expression of HLA-G, invade into uterine blood vessels (endovascular EVT), as well as glands (endoglandular EVT), and open such luminal structures towards the intervillous space of the placenta. Endoglandular invasion diverts the contents of uterine glands to the intervillous space, while glands near the margin of the placenta that also contain endoglandular EVT cells open into the reproductive tract...

PURPOSE: Cervical cancer screening reduces the incidence and specific mortality rate of cervical neoplasms. In most cases screening by means of Pap smears is performed in France by gynecologists. The primary objective of this study was to confirm whether the participation rate is increased when general practitioners (GPs) carry out the smears themselves. The secondary objective was to evaluate other independent characteristics of GPs predicting participation rates in women. METHODS: The population of 347 GPs, including their relevant characteristics and their 90,094 female patients eligible for screening over 2 years (2013-2014), was derived from the SIAM claim database of the Flanders Healthcare Insurance Fund (CPAM)...

PURPOSE: Cytological and histological cervical screening methods for human papillomavirus may be subjective. Current guidelines recommend the use of direct human papillomavirus screening by molecular methods in conjunction with cytology for the detection of high-risk human papillomavirus types with carcinogenic potential. In this study, we compared the performance of the molecular Cepheid Xpert HPV test to the FDA-approved HC2 High-Risk HPV DNA Test on samples from patients presenting for cervical screening, regardless of the cytology results, in which cervical cell samples were originally collected for Papanicolaou (Pap) smear specimens in Becton Dickinson (BD) SurePath preservative fluid...

We report a case of minimal deviation adenocarcinoma (MDA) of the uterine cervix showing varicolored cytopathologic features on Papanicolaou (Pap) smear, which may indicate features suggestive of lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia (LEGH)-adenocarcinoma sequence. A 57-year-old woman presented with a profuse amount of watery vaginal discharge. Gynecological examination revealed a cervical mass with involvement of the right parametrium. Conventional Pap smear showed hypercellularity consisting of approximately 4 types of clusters as follows: (1) clusters showing a monolayered honeycomb sheet of endocervical cells with golden-yellow mucin and bland nuclei, (2) three-dimensional clusters showing varicolored mucin and irregular nuclear overlapping, (3) irregularly shaped clusters showing distorted chicken-wire-mesh appearance with noticeable protrusions of the nuclei and clear or faint varicolored cytoplasm, and (4) crowded clusters showing scarce mucin and nuclear atypia...
