Endometrial assessment re‐visited
TLDR
A literature search using the MEDLINE database was performed using the MeSH headings: transvaginal ultrasound, hysteroscopy, endometrial biopsy and endornetrial cytology, and a total of 142 citations were found using these methods. Expand
Abnormal uterine bleeding in the reproductive years. Part II-medical management.

  • Medicine
  • The Journal of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists
  • 2000
TLDR
To provide women with appropriate options for therapy, the clinician must be prepared to distinguish abnormal bleeding that is associated with ovulation from that which is anovulatory, and to perform appropriate ancillary tests to identify structural and endocrinologic anomalies or lifestyle factors that may explain the bleeding. Expand
Endovaginal ultrasound to exclude endometrial cancer and other endometrial abnormalities.
TLDR
Endovaginal ultrasound has a high sensitivity for detecting endometrial cancer and otherendometrial disease and can reliably identify postmenopausal women with vaginal bleeding who are highly unlikely to have significant endometrian disease so that endometri sampling may be unnecessary. Expand
Abnormal uterine bleeding in the reproductive years. Part I--pathogenesis and clinical investigation.
  • M. Munro
  • Medicine
  • The Journal of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists
  • 1999
TLDR
Evaluation of women with chronic anovulatory DUB present the clinician an opportunity to detect an array of clinical entities ranging from significant endocrinopathies to serious psychosocial pathology, and evaluation of these women should focus on endometrial histology and the reason for the systemic disorder. Expand
The Accuracy of Transvaginal Ultrasonography in the Diagnosis of Endometrial Abnormalities
TLDR
Transvaginal ultrasonography is an excellent first-step diagnostic method of excluding endometrial abnormalities in women with postmenopausal bleeding but is of limited use in premenopausal women with irregular bleeding. Expand
An evaluation of risk factors for endometrial hyperplasia in premenopausal women with abnormal menstrual bleeding.
TLDR
The following are risk factors for endometrial hyperplasia in premenopausal women with abnormal menstrual bleeding: body weight, age >/=45 years, infertility, family history of colonic carcinoma, and nulliparity. Expand
Danazol in menorrhagia: a double blind placebo controlled trial
TLDR
It is confirmed that danazol 200 mg daily is effective in controlling symptomatic primary menorrhagia and a 3 month course has a 'carry over' effect which appears to be clinically useful. Expand

  • P. Schwärzler, H. Concin, +4 authors T. Bourne
  • Medicine
  • Ultrasound in obstetrics & gynecology : the official journal of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology
  • 1998
TLDR
The use of saline infusion to enhance visualization of the endometrium increases the diagnostic accuracy of transvaginal sonography to approach that of diagnostic hysteroscopy and also provides some additional information. Expand
Transvaginal ultrasonography compared with endometrial biopsy for the detection of endometrial disease. Postmenopausal Estrogen/Progestin Interventions Trial.
TLDR
Transvaginal ultrasonography has a poor positive predictive value but a high negative predictive value for detecting serious endometrial disease in asymptomatic postmenopausal women. Expand
