High-frequency Coagulation Method
Many women suffer from vaginal bleeding and leukorrhea due to cervical erosion and vaginitis. Vaginitis can be treated by proper feminine hygiene and medications, but cervical erosion cannot be completely treated, even with long-term treatments (3 months to 1 year). If cervical erosion is not properly treated, vaginitis may recur. An even more threatening consequence of improper or inadequate treatment is the higher likelihood of uterine cancer, which experts believe is connected with the disappearance and reappearance of vaginitis and, ultimately, with cervical erosion. Thus, early treatment of cervical erosion is highly recommended as a preventive measure against uterine cancer and in reducing leukorrhea and vaginal bleeding.
Cervical erosion is not easily treated and none of the available treatment measures are 100% effective, thus, some doctors contend it is not necessary to treat it. However, considering the possible consequences of untreated cervical erosion, the best strategy, and the current consensus, is that the best available treatment measure should be taken. Methods include electrical cauterization, cryocoagulation method, cold coagulator coagulation method, laser surgery, conization, and high-frequency coagulation method. Electrical cauterization, cryocoagulation method, and the cold coagulator coagulation method have the drawback of not being permanent treatments; laser surgery has the disadvantage of being delicate and difficult to perform, as well as inducing a lot of bleeding. Therefore, high-frequency coagulation method is recommended.
What is high-frequency coagulation method?
# In the high-frequency coagulation method, the instruments automatically and accurately focus the needed energy to the eroded area and to a depth of 5 mm, which is needed to adequately treat cervical erosion.
# The high-frequency coagulation method has a single surgical success rate of about 95%, surpassing that of any other method by a large margin. This is because the technique uses an automated machine that is much more accurate than other methods, which rely on human interpretation.
# Surgery just takes 3-5 minutes, and usually only treatment is needed.
# The amount of pain during surgery is equivalent to that of menstruation and labor and, thus, anesthetics are usually not needed.
# There are no reported cases of sterility, arthresthesia of the cervix, pyometra, or perforation due to extreme coagulation, as a result of this surgery.
