Paper Abstract

Last decade presented a development in alternative technique for the treatment of cervical dysplasia. Laser or LEEP present advantage and limits. Excissional therapy offers a sample adequate for hystology. Laser therapy is possible to repeat in case of relapse. Indication to laser are esocervical lesions with visible squamocolunnar junction. Endocervical lesions prefer an excissional treatment for hystological specimen. This study compares the therapeutical capacity of laser vaporisation versus LEEP in the treatment of the dysplastic disease of the uterine cervix.
