The utility of endometrial cytology in the diagnosis of uterine pathology has led to the development of many methods of sampling; ours uses a rubber tube whose tip has been cut and in its place inserted a steel tip specially_made, to the diameter of the tube, and 2-3 cm long. The withdrawal is normally carried out without any need for the dilation of the cervical canal and without having to pinch the neck of the uterus, the stell tip being pushed backwards and forwards by the extractor carrying out a curettage of the cavity. The material obtained is both abundant and of sufficient quality for a histological examination, besides the cytological one.
