    Needle excision of the Transformation Zone : A New Method for Treatment of Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia

    Am J. Obstet Gynecol April 2000, Volume 182, Number 4, Pgs. 866-871



    Objective – This study was undertaken to evaluate a new needle electrode for conization of the cervix that was developed in my department.



    Study Design – This was a prospective study of 58 unselected women with histologically verified cervical intraepithelial neoplasia who underwent conization with the diathermy needle. The operations were performed with local anesthesia as outpatient procedures. Follow-up time was 5 years.



    Results – All cones were removed in one piece and were of high histologic quality. Mean [+SD] operating time, including anesthesia, was 7.9 + 2.7 minutes. Mean depth of thermal damage was 0.29 + 0.21 mm, and mean blood loss was 12.5 + 9.4 mL. No late complications have been noted, and 94.8% of patients have required no further treatment.



    Conclusion – Needle excision of the transformation zone is a simple and effective outpatient procedure that yields a one-piece cone specimen of high quality and carries a success rate of 94.8%.
