  1. 1. Minimal conization with carbon dioxide laser for treatment of cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia

    University dissertation from Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Lund University

    Author : Zoltan Bekassy; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; gynaecology; Obstetrics; preterm birth; pregnancy; laser; follow-up; conization; Cervical carcinoma; cervical intraepithelial neoplasia; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Abstract : 3,100 non-pregnant women and 85 pregnants were miniconized during the 15-year period ending 1994 . The outpatient procedure of minimal conization using a freehand-guided, high power 60W carbon dioxide laser focused to 0.1 mm in spot-size, giving high power density 165,000 W/cm2, produces single-piece tissue specimens for histological examination.

  3. 3. Targeting the human papillomavirus for prevention of cervical cancer

    University dissertation from Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Abstract : Different types of human papillomavirus (HPV) vary in the extent they cause precursor lesions (CIN) and cancer. There are limited long-term efficacy data on HPV testing in primary screening Among 72 cervical cancers in Mozambique, HPV 16 and 18 were the most frequent HPV types (69% of cases). READ MORE

  4. 4. Non-attendees need attention - Determinants and interventions affecting participation in cervical cancer screening

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Abstract : Aim: Non-attendance is the foremost screening-related risk factor for cervical cancer. The overall aim of this thesis is to contribute to preventing cervical cancer by focusing attention on non-attendees, assessing interventions to increase participation in screening and identifying determinants for non-attendance.

    Abstract : Cervical cancer derives from a series of pre-invasive cervical neoplastic lesions termed CIN I-III (Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia) via typical multiple-step processes. In contrast to premalignant disorders in other organs, different degrees of CIN possess a distinct biological behaviour where a proportion spontaneously regress or persist, whereas some progress to invasive cancer.
