INTRODUCTION: We aimed to compare hysteroscopic diagnosis of patients who were diagnosed preoperatively with the salin infusion sonography and to discuss the efficiency and accuracy of hysteroscopy.
METHODS: Ninety-five patients who underwent hysteroscopy procedure in Dept of Gyn&Ob, Adana Numune Teaching and Research Hospital, between October 2011 to December 2012, included in this study. Preoperative sonohysterography was performed
in all patients who scheduled for hysteroscopy with different indications. Patients underwent to hysteroscopy procedure after the sonohysterographic diagnoses recorded. Afterwards the diagnostic values of these two commonly used methods compared with histological diagnosis that considered the gold standard.
RESULTS: In condition of histological diagnosis was considered the gold standard we found that: diagnostic sensitivity and specifity of sonohysterography, respectively: polyp 90.62% and 90.48%, myoma 84.21% and 100%. Diagnostic sensitivity and specifity of histerography, respectively: polyp 96.78% and 90.48%, myoma 84.21% and 100%.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Saline infusion sonography satisfied us about the focal lesions but in our routine practice hysterescopic
approach is gone to widespreading and essential tool for the diagnosis and treatment of endometrial cavity lesions.
