Endometrial Sampling

EndoCurette® Endometrial Sampling Curettes

Endometrial sampling is an important first-line procedure for diagnosing the cause of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB). In-office sampling with a disposable curette is the least invasive method for getting an endometrial sample, and using the EndoCurette® sampling suction curette, with its multiple elongated curetting ports on the tip, provides a much more robust sample for histological assessment.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The EndoCurette® is a sterile, single use suction curette which features a proprietary multiport curetting tip.

FEATURES

  • Multiple, elongated ports on the curetting head are designed to draw tissue from a large surface area and provide reliable sampling of the endometrium.
  • Stiff catheter body for easy insertion.
  • No dilatation needed for the small diameter tip.
  • Smoothly operating suction plunger for consistent vacuum.

INDICATIONS

• Persistent abnormal or dysfunctional uterine bleeding in a woman over age 35, or prolonged amenorrhea in a premenopausal woman of any age.
• Postmenopausal bleeding.
• At the time of starting hormone replacement therapy in an obese woman (especially with estrone effect on the vaginal mucosa), or a woman with late
menopause, nulliparity, diabetes, hypertension, or a family history of uterine cancer.
• Breakthrough bleeding persisting beyond or occurring after 8-12 months of continuous combined hormone replacement therapy (consider sooner if significant risk factors exist).
• Intermenstrual bleeding in women on cyclic-sequential or cyclic-combined hormone replacement therapy.
• Persistent breakthrough bleeding despite one or two courses of supplemental estrogen in women who are long-term users of oral contraceptives.
• Determination of endometrial tissue response to hormonal influences.
• Abnormal bleeding in women on tamoxifen therapy.
• Detection of precancerous conditions and follow-up surveillance in women who have undergone treatment for endometrial hyperplasias.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

• Should not be used in patients who are pregnant or suspected to be pregnant.
• Should not be used in the presence of or after recent acute pelvic inflammatory disease, cervicitis, or bacterial vaginitis.
