There were 8 Low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL) reported in the study group of which only two were colposcopically
In 29 cases, which were colposcopically
reported as RCI 0-2, 1 case was histologically confirmed as LSIL/CIN1 (3.
During the procedure, all colposcopically
abnormal findings were excised, aiming for a tissue depth of at least 6 mm.
Loop excision studies after colposcopy have identified women with CIN 2+ and cancer missed colposcopically
Reid's Colposcopic Index (RCI) is a systematic, objective method of colposcopically
grading the severity of premalignant cervical lesions and makes use of four colposcopic signs: lesion margin, color of acetowhitening, blood vessels, and iodine staining (Ferris & Greenberg, 1994).
Although Pap smear screening has a high specificity, only colposcopically
directed biopsies can confirm the exact grade of the lesion.
It is also possible that trauma to the cervical tissue from the insertion of the device "induces local small foci of chronic inflammation and a long-lasting immune response similar to that noted in patients after colposcopically
guided punch biopsies.
Until recently, few experts would have questioned the value of the partnership between cervical cytology screening and treatment of lesions detected on colposcopically
directed punch biopsies showed inflammation and necrosis while punch biopsy of the bladder revealed chronic cystitis.
Women with abnormal smears are referred for colposcopy and once the diagnosis is confirmed either colposcopically
or histologically, the transformation is removed either by excision or ablation.
, replicative HPV infection manifest as accuminata warts or flat warts in the cervix or elsewhere in the genital tract (8).
This meta-analysis included randomized controlled trials and cohort studies in which all patients were submitted to gold standard verification with colposcopy and the histology of colposcopically
