Cervical carcinoma is one of the most common diseases among women – with India accounting for around 16% of the total cervical cancer cases globally. Although the incidences have reduced over the years, cervical cancer is still one of the leading causes of cancer mortality, accounting for 17% of all cancer deaths among women aged between 30 and 69 years.
There are around five types of standard treatment protocols to treat Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN), involving Surgery or Conization, Radiation therapy, Chemotherapy, Targeted Therapy, and Immunotherapy, each having distinct advantages and disadvantages to the patient.
Thermocoagulation or Thermal coagulation method is slowly growing into a viable alternative treatment procedure, that can be used in the single-visit “screen-and-treat” approach, “see-and-treat” approach, and in management of ectocervical CIN in cervical cancer control programs. The procedure is intended to conduct monopolar electrosurgical energy from the electrosurgical generator to target the tissue. This treatment protocol has various advantages, in that it is a portable device that uses minimal electricity and can provide a painless and affordable treatment to patients causing minimal adverse reactions and shorter recovery periods.
ZEPNURhealth in association with the Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India ( FOGSI) brings to you the 1- day virtual event on Thermocoagulation- A new concept in the management of precancers of the cervix.
