Transrectal Ultrasonography Guided Vaginal Procedures.
Joo Yun Cho, Hye Sun Jun
Some vaginal procedures may be safer, easier and more successful if they could be done under direct sonographic vision of the object. METHODS: All the procedures were done under the guidance of transrectal sonography. Suction curettage, after using curved plastic Karman's cannula, additional curettage was done only when there was probable remaining conceptal tissue seen on sonography. If additional curettage was needed curved metal cannula made in the same form as plastic Karman's cannula is used first and then usual metal curette if the former did not work. A high frequency cautery unit was used for myolysis. Insertion of the flexible curved cautery tip into the myoma mass was done through the uterine cavity and coagulation of the myoma tissue was performed. Myoma biopsies were done with thin loop high frequency cautery tip through laparoscopy and the vagina. RESULTS: Suction curettage in 156 cases of early pregnancy and 2 cases of previous cesarean incision site pregnancy, D&C in 11 cases, chorionic villus sampling in 13 cases, polypectomy in 1 case, myolysis in 1 case and myoma biopsy in 2 cases were done. CONCLUSION: Performing some vaginal procedures under the guidance of transrectal sonography may be better.
