CARVAJAL V, Juan Carlos; RODRIGUEZ C, Juan; BRICENO C, Tamara  and  VEAS P, Julio. RESECCIÓN ENDOMETRIAL HISTEROSCÓPICA MÁS INSERCIÓN DE DIU-LNG EN EL SANGRADO UTERINO ANORMAL REFRACTARIO A TRATAMIENTO MÉDICO. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2007, vol.72, n.2, pp.111-115.

Objective: To evaluate hysteroscopic endometrial resection associated to levonorgestrel intrauterine device insertion as a treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding of benign cause. Method: 24 patients with abnormal uterine bleeding, were treated with hysteroscopic endometrial resection followed by the insertion of a intrauterine levonorgestrel device. Results: 23 of 24 patients no report symptoms after 18.3 months follow up. One hysterectomy was performed for persistent chronic pelvic pain. Conclusions: Endometrial ablations with diathermic loop followed by the insertion of intrauterine levonorgestrel device improve the results of the conservative surgeries, avoiding 95.9% of hysterectomies in patients with abnormal uterine bleeding

Keywords : Endometrial resection; levonorgestrel intrauterine device; abnormal uterine bleeding.
