Hysteroscopic Resection of a Giant Cervical Polyp with Preservation of Hymen
Objectives: To report a patient who had hysteroscopic cervical polyp removal in a day care setting with preservation of the hymen.
Setting: In a tertiary academic referral center, hysteroscopic cervical polyp resection was performed for a 26-year-old female with menorrhagia.
Patient: 26 years old female with a giant cervical polyp.
Intervention: Hysteroscopic cervical polypectomy, case study.
Main outcome measures: successful hysteroscopic resection of a 5 cm polyp with preservation of the hymen.
Results: Hysteroscopic resection of a 5 cm cervical polyp along with preservation of the hymen, is a more conservative alternative to conventional cervical poylpectomy. The result was the improvement of menorrhagia and patient satisfaction in terms of preserving her hymen.
Conclusions: Hysteroscopic resection of a cervical polyp in virgin females is possible with preservation of their hymen and this should be considered as a first option in patients wishing to conserve their virginity.
