OBJECTIVE An organized cervical cancer (CC) screening program was introduced in Slovenia in 2003. With the purpose of clinical audit we analyzed the clinicopathological characteristics of CC patients for the period between 2003 and 2005. STUDY DESIGN The retrospectively collected data of 450 CC patients were presented at three Advisory Boards of(More)
The value of prospective cytologic diagnosis in cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) is analysed by means of ROC (receiver operating characteristic) curves. Examined was a group of 160 women with subsequent cone biopsies. The result of a prospective cytologic diagnosis in moderate dysplasia, severe dysplasia and carcinoma in situ is analysed separately,(More)
TERC gene amplification was investigated as a possible diagnostic marker for use in routine cytological screening to improve the accuracy of conventional screening procedures in detection of cervical preneoplastic lesions. Cervical smears were screened and classified as low-grade or high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSIL or HSIL). A fluorescence(More)
PURPOSE OF INVESTIGATION The data gathered in 2003 on the patients with cervical cancer who regularly attended their gynecologist were analyzed with the purpose of clinical audit. METHODS The data on newly detected patients with cervical cancer in 2003 who regularly attended their gynecologist were gathered simultaneously at three Advisory Boards for(More)
This study was designed to investigate whether a correlation exists between amplification of the human telomerase gene (human telomerase RNA component [TERC]) and high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) infection in 101 women with cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia (CIN). Eight patients (7.9%) had CIN 1, 24 (23.8%) had CIN 2 and 69 (68.3%) had CIN 3. TERC(More)
PURPOSE OF INVESTIGATION From 2003 to 2006 the data on Slovenian cervical cancer patients who regularly attended a gynecologist were gathered. Data were analyzed in order to improve the efficiency of the cervical cancer screening program. METHODS Data on all patients newly diagnosed with cervical cancer were collected at three central clinics in Slovenia.(More)
