Comparison of depth of necrosis using cryotherapy by gas and number of freeze cycles.
This study aimed to establish the noninferiority of a single-freeze application with CO2 or N2O compared with the standard double freeze with N2O for cryotherapy treatment. Sixty women undergoing hysterectomy for reasons other than cervical cancer or precancer were randomized to 1 of 3 techniques as...
Triage of women with negative cytology and positive high-risk HPV: an analysis of data from the SHENCCAST II/III studies.
We compared the risk for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 or cancer (CIN 3+) in women with negative cytology but testing positive for HR-HPV DNA using Cervista HPV HR or matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF), followed by secondary screenin...
Too much of a good thing….
Yield and mode of diagnosis of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 3 or cancer among women with negative cervical cytology and positive high-...
We compared the risk of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 3 (CIN 3) or cancer (CIN 3+) in women with previous abnormal cervical cytology, CIN, or HR-HPV with that in women without this history, and we determined their cumulative risk of CIN 3+. We reviewed colposcopies for negative cytology and pos...
Tolerability of anal dysplasia screening.
We endeavored to determine the tolerability of screening procedures for anal HPV disease. This was a 2-visit screening study. On visit 1 (V1), cells for cytology (using a swab) and HPV testing (randomized to a brush or swab) were collected, followed by digital rectal examination and standard anoscop...
Benchmarking CIN 3+ risk as the basis for incorporating HPV and Pap cotesting into cervical screening and management guidelines.
We estimated cumulative 5-year risks of CIN 3+ for 965,360 women aged 30 to 64 years undergoing cotesting at Kaiser Permanente Northern California over 2003 to 2010. We calculated the implicit risk thresholds for Pap-alone and applied them for new management guidance on HPV and Pap cotesting, citing...
Five-year risks of CIN 2+ and CIN 3+ among women with HPV-positive and HPV-negative LSIL Pap results.
We estimated 5-year risks of CIN 2+ and CIN 3+ among 9,033 women aged 30 to 64 years who had both an HPV test and an LSIL Pap result. HPV positivity among women with LSIL decreased only slightly with age (30 to 34 vs 60 to 64 years, 88% vs 72%, p < .0001). The 5-year risks of CIN 2+ and CIN 3+ of wo...
Temporal trends in genital warts among individuals covered by the public prescription drug insurance plan in the province of Quebec, Canada,...
We assessed temporal trend in the incidence and prevalence of genital warts (GWs) in the province of Quebec, Canada, between 1998 and 2007 as a baseline for future assessment of the impact of Quebec human papillomavirus vaccination program. Data on GWs were obtained from the linkage of the physician...
Bakri balloon in vaginal-perineal hematomas complicating vaginal delivery: a new therapeutic approach.
The study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of Bakri balloon as a hemostatic device in severe postpartum hemorrhage due to complicated vaginal-perineal hematoma not responsive to standard surgical treatments. The article discusses an effective and minimally invasive technique for resolving a case...
Surgical division of labial adhesions in vulvar lichen sclerosus and lichen planus.
We report on simple perineotomy in the context of careful preoperative and postoperative medical suppressions. Thirty-five patients were identified within a referral vulvar practice, with symptomatic labial adhesions due to LS or LP. After sharp dissection of adhesions and injection of anesthesia, p...
