Initial experience in treatment of female genital warts and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia with laser



Initial experience in treatment of female genital warts and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia with laser



Singapore Medical Journal 29(3): 265-269



Laser therapy was introduced at Kandang Kerbau Hospital, Singapore, in October 1986. Between the period October to December 1986, we treated 48 patients at A Unit, Kandang Kerbau Hospital. Forty laser vapourisation and 8 laser excisional cone biopsies were carried out under local anaesthesia. The average time taken for vapourisation was 22 minutes and 19 minutes for conisation. Two cases of primary haemorrhage and 5 cases of secondary haemorrhage and sepsis were encountered. These cases responded well to simple conventional therapy. There were no cases of cervical stenosis. During the first 6 months of follow up, there was 1 case of residual cervical warts, and 2 cases of residual CIN I. All cone biopsy specimens were free of disease at the margins.
