STRUCTURAL CHANGES OF THE CERVIX IN WOMEN WITH CHRONIC ENDOCERVICITIS AGAINST A BACKGROUND OF CERVICAL PSEUDOERROSION
Kharkiv Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Ukraine
The paper presents the features of structural changes in the cervix in chronic endocervicitis depending on the history of pregnancy and delivery in women with cervical pseudoerrosion. A comparative analysis of the quantitative parameters of the cervix and endocervix in women with chronic endocervicitis, of whom 132 had a history of births, 34 only abortions in 21 no pregnancy was performed. Statistical analysis allowed us to determine the most important ultrasonographic signs of chronic endocervicitis. It was found that in women with the history of birth the volume (31.8±2.6cm3) and the degree of asymmetry of the walls of the cervix, endocervical heterogeneity (93.9±2.1 %), cyst dispersed suspension of more than 3 mm (43.9±4.7 %), uneven expansion of the cervical canal was significantly higher than in the rest. It was found that in women who had no pregnancy endocervical maximum thickness (7.9±0.8 mm) is higher than in women who had births and abortions only.
Key words: cervix, chronic endocervicitis, pseudoerrosion of the cervix.
