The structure of the cervix and benign lesions its surface tissues

The cervix is ​​inside the cervical canal, lined with a single layer of columnar epithelium cells with a variety of glands that produce mucus, which features vary depending on the woman's age and phase of the menstrual cycle. The cervix protruding into the vagina, covered with another layer of cells - stratified squamous epithelium, which goes to the wall of the vagina, there is no iron, so it is less susceptible to changes associated with the menstrual cycle. The boundary between these two types of epithelium is most often located in the entrance to the cervical canal of the uterus (outer uterine mouth) and is called the transformation zone. In the area of ​​transformation of squamous epithelium gradually grows and creeps on a cylindrical, thus can be closed ducts of the glands, and develop their mucus accumulates in the form of small cysts (nabothian cyst).

For benign lesions are superficial tissues disorders of the superficial layers of the mucous membrane in the erosion of the (minor abrasions) and pseudo polyps of the cervical canal (swelling of the mucous membrane), nabothian cyst and proliferation of the mucous membrane of the cervix after hysterectomy Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) - a terrible need  Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) - a terrible need

Mechanism of action

Solkovagina - a combined medicament for topical use (marketed in solution), which is composed of nitric acid and acetic acid, oxalic acid dihydrate, and zinc nitrate hexahydrate.

It is used for cautery Solkovagina benign lesions of the cervix. A feature of this formulation is that it only affects the columnar epithelium of the cervical canal and abnormal erosion of stratified squamous epithelium without causing disturbances in the environment, not altered stratified squamous epithelium. After cauterization of changes in the epithelium dies and gradually exfoliate, forming a protective layer for a while, which is developed under normal mucosa. Once the dead skin cells fall off, their place is taken by new cells stratified squamous epithelium.

Since Solkovagina is a drug for external use, its components have rapid action on the fabric, hardly soaked into the blood and without causing the overall impact on the body.

Indications and conducting the procedure of cauterization

Solkovagina used in benign lesions of the superficial tissues of the cervix: cervical Cervical canal - the path traversed by every person  Cervical canal - the path traversed by every person
   (including polyps and postoperative granulomas), the transformation zone (including nabothian cyst after dissection) and stratified squamous epithelium of the outer surface of the cervix (e.g., when erosion).

Cauterization procedure is performed on an outpatient basis obstetrician-gynecologist using a colposcope (a special optical device, allowing detail the mucous membrane of the cervix). It is painless (better tolerated than cold moxibustion) changes Solkovagina treated fabric occurs within a few minutes and is accompanied by the appearance of a yellowish-white or gray tissue staining. During the procedure should only handle the affected area, avoiding contact with skin external genitalia and vaginal epithelium, and mucous membranes of the eyes and skin (if this happens, the drug should be washed off with water). Healing occurs without scarring, reducing the risk of recurrence of the same disease. The usual way of life, including water treatment and sexual life is not limited.

Contraindications and side effects

Contraindications for use Solkovagina are suspected cancer of the cervix and cellular dysplasia Dysplasia - what is it?  Dysplasia - what is it?
   (violation of maturity and structure of stratified squamous epithelium - a precancerous condition), so before the procedure is necessary to smear taken from the cervix to detect "abnormal" cells. Contraindications are also pregnancy and infant feeding Breastfeeding - a personal choice  Breastfeeding - a personal choice
   feeding (clinical research on this cohort of patients were not conducted), hypersensitivity to the drug.

Adverse effects with Solkovagina have been identified, the treatment does not lead to scarring or deformation of the cervical canal. Possible slight local reaction: the appearance of a burning sensation and redness in the affected area. When using an excess of the drug may cause burns which may lead to changes in the cervical epithelium.

How do ultrasound of the uterus

During the procedure, a patient lies on a special room couch with a soft covering. If it is a transabdominal ultrasound of the uterus on the stomach a special gel is applied that facilitates the movement of sound waves and improves image quality. The doctor leads a small transmitter on the patient's abdomen and examines the image that is displayed on the monitor. The procedure usually lasts about thirty minutes.

On sensor intravagilnogo ultrasound examination put before the special condom, it is applied to the gel, and injected the probe into the vagina. The duration of such surveys usually also does not exceed half an hour.

Before sonogisterografii dilator inserted into the vagina, the cervix was purified and then injected into the uterine cavity catheter. Thereafter the expander is removed through the catheter poured saline, and administered into the vagina ultrasound transducer.

If a transabdominal ultrasound of the uterus does not cause any discomfort, the transvaginal ultrasound in the patient may experience mild or moderate pain in the pelvic area, which, however, quickly. If you have severe pain in the survey immediately inform your doctor.

During sonogisterografii many patients feel cramping in the lower part - they are usually the result of introduction of saline and also tested almost immediately after the procedure. Within a few days after sonogisterografii patient may experience spotting bleeding - this is a normal phenomenon. However, if heavy bleeding starts, as soon as possible, seek medical help.

After any type of uterine ultrasound patient can immediately go back to business as usual; any limitation of physical activity after the procedure is not required.



Unlike X-rays, ultrasound of the uterus during the organism is not exposed to ionizing radiation. According to modern science, the sound waves generated by the ultrasound devices are completely safe for both adult and fetal.

Sonogisterografiya associated with a small risk of infection, but the chance of infection in modern hospitals is very low.

How to decipher ultrasound uterus

Interpretation of results ultrasound of the uterus has been a specialist in ultrasound diagnosis - a person with higher medical education, who also took additional training. He then sends the images and test report to the doctor who sent the woman an ultrasound of the uterus. In some cases, it can also discuss the results of ultrasound with the patient during the procedure, but then she did not care to be a detailed conversation with your doctor.

As seen in the images obtained using ultrasound? If the woman is healthy, her uterus is a normal size and shape; any tumors lacking. However, women of childbearing age in the womb can be quite small cysts - a common phenomenon, and usually within a few months of cysts no trace remains, and some time later he might reappear.

 . To make sure that indeed the tumor is malignant, additional diagnostic procedures, e.g., biopsy.

Polyps in the uterus on ultrasound is different from other tumors characteristic "stem" that connects it to the endometrium. Diagnosis of polyps may be difficult if they are located so that their legs can not be seen with the help of ultrasound.

The tone of the uterus on ultrasound looks like thickening of the uterine wall The thickening of the uterine wall - when you can talk about the disease?  The thickening of the uterine wall - when you can talk about the disease?

If the ultrasound of the uterus is held in the framework of routine examination of pregnant women, on the basis of the received image doctor can measure the growth of the fetus (observation of the dynamics of growth allows us to estimate whether normally developing child), as well as to identify some of the defects.
