Post treatment behaviour of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia - GRADE III
The behaviour in time of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade III has been evaluated in 141 patients treated for CIN III. It was observed that surgery ensures the higher healing-rate, whether histerectomy or conizationare performed, while diathermocoagulation seems unsatisfactory. Colposcopy, colpocytology and sight biopsies of the cervical canal, portio and vagina, which provide a precise lesion-map ,are then essential investigations to make the subsequent treatment a truly radical one. A very close monitoring of patients, treated for CIN III, seems required in the first year after surgery, when we observed the highest rate of persistences and recurrences, while, subsequently, their incidence decreases as time passes by.
