Abstract

CATALAN B, Alejandra et al. PÓLIPOS ENDOMETRIALES: MANEJO CON HISTEROSCOPIA QUIRÚRGICA Y CORRELACIÓN HISTOLÓGICA. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2007, vol.72, n.2, pp.116-119. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262007000200009.

The surgical experience in 160 patients with echographic diagnostic of endometrial polyps, are analyzed. Clinical and pathological characteristics are evaluated. The patient average age was 50 years old; variables were analyzed differentiating them in pre menopausal or post menopausal, according to the presence of symptoms. In all sub-groups the incidence was equally high for the endometrial polyps, followed in frequency by leiomyomas, endometrial hyperplasia and endometria proliferative among others. Three cases of endometrial adenocarcinoma were found, all in the sub-group of the symptomatic post menopausal patients. The procedure was well tolerated, without complications. We emphasized the hysteroscopy procedure as the gold standard by its high sensitivity and specificity in the endometrial polyp diagnosis

Keywords : Hysteroscopy; endometrial polyps.
