Abstract

The demand for testing endometrium for detecting pathological as well as hormonal status is increasing and cytodiagnosis is extended very rapidly in malignant and non-malignant conditions. The gynaecologists have responded to this trend by providing cost effective care without compromising the quality. With this in mind, uterine aspiration curettage, ambulatory procedure, for endometrial sampling was studied. Dilatation and curettage (D&C) is probably most commonly performed gynaecological surgery. It accounts for large proportion of hospital bed use and operating room time, the cost is significant and patient also risks the complication of anaesthesia. Consequently various alternative procedures for endometrial sampling like endometrial brush, uterine lavage, jet wash vabra aspiration and endometrial biopsy have been reported.
