BACKGROUND: Abnormal uterine bleeding is a common cause of hospital admission in perimenopausal women. It can be the first sign of many diseases such as endometrial cancer and endometrial hyperplasia. Endometrial sampling is valuable in early diagnosis and treatment. Although hysterectomy is the gold standard in the diagnosis of endometrial pathology, it is not considered an acceptable method for diagnosis. With the principle of “see and treat, hysteroscopy seems to be the most successful method.
METHODS: After obtaining the necessary ethics committee approval, we obtained liquid-based cytology samples of our perimenopausal patients who frequently applied to our outpatient clinic with abnormal uterine bleeding. To conduct endometrial sampling of our patients, we used pipelle aspiration method in our 75-disease group and direct hysteroscopic sampling method in our other 75 disease group. We then compared the pre- and postoperative pathology results.
RESULTS: There was no statistically significant difference between preoperative and postoperative pathological results in both pipelle and hysteroscopic sampling groups.
CONCLUSIONS: Evaluation of endometrial pathologies by hysteroscopic method and pipelle method has high sensitivity and specificity. Gynecologists may determine the method preference according to the status of the health system together with their patients.
