Abstract

In this study, routine endocervical curettage (ECC) among women age 30 and older detected CIN 2 or worse in 14.4% of cases with higher likelihood of detection among women with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, ASC-H, positive HPV 16 infection, or high grade colposcopic impression. The additional yield of ECC over lesion-directed ectocervical biopsies decreased with each additional biopsy.
