- Moxibustion cervical erosion - which method is right for you?
Methods of treatment of cervical erosion
Treatment of pathological processes of the cervix, including cervical erosion, many women are understood as "moxibustion cervical erosion." Though the moxibustion describes only one method of treatment of erosion - electric shock treatment, but, in principle, to this concept include all methods of treatment of cervical erosion.
Cervical erosion - is a benign disease process, which is characterized by injury and then sloughing of vaginal stratified squamous epithelium of the cervix to form a defect of the mucous membrane and its subsequent coating columnar epithelium (epithelium that normally lines the only cervical canal).
To date, there are several methods of treatment of cervical erosion. The choice of treatment depends on the size and structure of the lesion, medical history, disease duration and contraindications. Treatment of cervical erosion aims - the removal of the diseased tissue, after having treated the inflammatory process (present in 90% of cases of erosion).
- Diathermocoagulation (electrocoagulation or just "burning")
- Chemical coagulation
- Laser vaporization
- Radionozh (processing radio waves) "Surgitron"
Diathermocoagulation cervical erosion
Old method, widely used and traditional. Its essence lies in the treatment of electrocution cervical lesion. Electrocoagulation is held in the first phase of the menstrual cycle (days 4-7), preferably immediately following menses. After treatment on a neck formed a scab which gradually softened to 5-7 day, accompanied by abundant belyami
Beli: abnormal discharge
Possibly mixed with blood. Complete healing occurs in 7-9 week.
- Low price
- Simplicity and accessibility
- Efficiency 75-98%
- Possibility of stenosis (narrowing) of the cervical canal
Cervical canal - the path traversed by every person
cervical and rigidity, which leads to complications in labor (difficulty opening the cervix and cervical laceration)
- The high probability of bleeding during and after the procedure (during the rejection of scab)
- The risk of developing cervical endometriosis
- Do not use in nulliparous women
- Scarring - coagulated cervical syndrome
Cryodestruction cervical erosion
Cryocautery (Cryosurgery) - a treatment of the pathological focus cervical liquid nitrogen or nitrous oxide (refrigerated up to 90-150 degrees C) using a special apparatus. The method is based on the crystallization of intracellular water to form crystals, which destroy abnormal cells. As a result, the cervix comes necrosis. Immediately after cryoablation having expressed swelling of the cervix and copious watery discharge
Watery discharge: Signs rules and conditions
. Regeneration starts after the rejection of necrotic areas of erosion, and complete healing is noted for 4-7 weeks.
- Bloodless nature of the intervention
- You can use the method in nulliparous (no risk of cervical canal stenosis and scarring)
- Relatively rapid epithelialization (healing)
Disadvantages of the procedure
- The risk of poor freezing tissue, due to which not all pathological necrosis cells
- Do not use at a deep or serious injuries
- In the postoperative period can cause slight spotting
The method is based on the use of strong chemicals that are processed erosion of the cervix, causing burns and scab formation. Currently used successfully drug "Solkovagina", consisting of a mixture of organic acids (acetic acid, oxalic acid) and zinc nitrate in nitric acid. Action "Solkovagina" based on the "atrophy" and consolidation of columnar epithelium, which inhibits further growth in the vaginal part of the cervix.
- Ability to use in nulliparous women
- Accessibility and ease (requires special equipment)
- It does not cause bleeding
- Not absorbed into the blood
- Not recommended to treat large areas of damage (there is no deep penetration of the drug in the pathological focus)
- It can not be used for the treatment of malignancies and cervical dysplasia
The method consists in exposing a laser beam of low intensity on damaged hearth cervix (the light energy is converted into thermal energy), resulting in abnormal tissue are heated and destroyed, forming necrotic zone at the junction with the healthy tissue. The most preferred method of treatment of cervical erosion
Treatment of cervical erosion - an approach must be an individual
- High efficiency
- Good hemostasis during the procedure (brewing small vessels) and there is no risk of bleeding
- High accuracy (under the control of colposcopy)
- Ability to use in nulliparous
- Almost no complications
- Rapid healing
- Not formed stenosis of the cervical canal, and do not form scars
- The disadvantage is perhaps one - an expensive method.
After applying any of the above method of treatment the patient should observe sexual rest (his term depends on the method of treatment), careful personal hygiene and be regularly dispensary examination (by a doctor).
