Usefulness of hysteroscopy in endometrial adenocarcinoma staging
Endometrial carcinoma has an absolutely unfavourable prognosis when it involves the cervix. Clinical staging, which is essential to a correct therapeutical approach, has proven quite wrong when relying on endocervical curettage. This work deals with the use of Hamou’s microhysteroscope to assess the endocervical diffusion of endometrial cancer. Thanks to its very high sensitivity (100%), high specificity (89%) and diagnostic accuracy (92%), this method has proven extremely reliable in the clinical staging of endometrial carcinoma.
