Factors Influencing on Pain in Patients Undergoing Pipelle Endometrial Biopsy for Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: Why a Personalized Approach Should Be Applied?
TLDR
The pain was found to have a strong association with the type of provider performing the endometrial sampling procedure, suggesting the need for a personalized approach and that psychological or informational interventions should be scheduled before the procedure to decrease pain and increase satisfaction.

TLDR
A simple and replicable three-step multidisciplinary approach to evaluate the psychological outcomes of postmenopausal women with intrauterine pathologies, focusing on the role of hysteroscopy is proposed.
Clinical Evaluation of Li Brush Endometrial Samplers for Diagnosing Endometrial Lesions in Women With Intrauterine Devices
TLDR
Li Brush used for endometrial biopsy did not affect the position of IUDs and had high yield of satisfactory samples and good validity for endometricrial diagnoses.
Diagnostic Value of Vaginal Ultrasound under Improved Clustering Algorithm Combined with Hysteroscopy in Abnormal Uterine Bleeding
TLDR
The combination of vaginal ultrasound and hysteroscopy based on K-means improved clustering color image segmentation algorithm can significantly improve the clinical diagnostic accuracy of AUB patients.

TLDR
Health education and health promotion messaging that accentuates the benefits of access to primary care providers and allocation of time to attend to health needs may bolster Chinese American women’s acceptability and uptake of routine Pap testing for cervical cancer prevention.

TLDR
In a patient with no obvious local cause, the emphasis should be on uterine and adnexal evaluation, and the evidence favours a conservative approach if the endometrial thicknes (ET) is < 4mm, unless there are risk factors.
Modern evaluation of the endometrium.
TLDR
Appropriate understanding and use of transvaginal ultrasonography and addition of sonohysterography when necessary can allow a clinical algorithm to triage patients with abnormal uterine bleeding to be triaged to no anatomic pathology best treated expectantly.

TLDR
Clinical risk factors for endometrial cancer, including but not limited to age, obesity, use of unopposed estrogen, specific medical comorbidities, and family history of gynecologic malignancy also should be considered when evaluating postmenopausal bleeding.

TLDR
Evaluating the clinical benefit and diagnostic accuracy of the Pipelle sampling in the setting of a dedicated one-stop clinic for women with postmenopausal bleeding revealed that the procedure avoided the need for hysteroscopy in 61.5 % of cases with an endometrial thickness of > 4mm.
