conization

 [ko″nĭ-za´shun]
the removal of a cone of tissue, as in partial excision of the cervix uteri.
cold conization that done with a cold knife, as opposed to electrocautery, to better preserve the histologic elements.

(kon'ĭ-zā'shŭn),
Excision of a cone of tissue, for example, mucosa of the cervix uteri.

It must be emphasized that histologic confirmation by biopsy or conization is essential.
Fifteen simple ELECTZ and 33 ELECTZ conization procedures were performed.
Between 1961 and 1985, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) changed the definition of stage IA microinvasive carcinoma 6 times, with treatment varying from conization alone, to the opposite extreme of radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy [39].
If microinvasive cancer is detected on biopsy, a larger biopsy, such as a conization or wedge biopsy, must be conducted to rule out invasion.
Women who were scheduled for the ELECTZ or ELECTZ conization procedures were enrolled in the study between March 1992 and March 1993, inclusive.
The study, presented in poster form, is the first to show an association between preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM) and even one laser conization or large loop excision.
Women with any of the following conditions were excluded from participation in the survey: (1) evidence of invasion or microinvasion on the biopsy report; (2) endocervical curettage that was positive for squamous or glandular dysplasia; (3) previous conization, electrosurgical loop excision procedure, laser therapy, or hysterectomy; (4) presence of any other lower genital tract neoplasia; (5) pregnancy; (6) inadequate colposcopy; (7) allergy to NSAIDs; (8) known drug abuse; or (9) known central or peripheral neurologic deficit.
Subsequent conization confirmed the presence of a low-grade dysplasia.
Exclusion criteria were as follows: (1) presence of glandular neoplasia in the endocervical canal, (2) history of conization, electrosurgical loop excision, laser therapy, cryotherapy, or hysterectomy, (3) any other lower genital tract neoplasia, (4) pregnancy, (5) inadequate colposcopy, (6) implanted pacemaker or cardiac arrhythmia, (7) any kind of central or peripheral neurologic deficit, (8) previous treatment at a pain clinic, and (9) known drug abuse.
Ectopic prostatic tissue (EPT) is not typically on the top of one's differential diagnosis when first examining a bladder lesion, cervical conization, or decubitus ulcer debridement.
Moreover, the obscured field due to extensive bleeding results in a high rate of residual disease following conization in pregnancy.
