Ninety-four patients suffering from CIN, of which 28 CIN1, 37 CIN2 and 29 CIN3 were treated with Cartier diathermal loop (57 cases 60.6%) or DTC (37 cases 29.4%). GSC proved visible in all cases except for a group of 16 patients in whom the combined use of ethinylestradiol and microendocervicoscopy showed GSC localisation within 5 mm of the OUE. The latter cases were all treated with Cartier diathermal loop. Results two months after the intervention showed correction of the colposcopic and cytological examination in 85 cases (94.4%) and bioptic cure in 91 cases (96.8%). In two cases, histological examination showed CIN1 and in one case CIN2.
