Abstract

Abstract Cryosurgery is a destructive technique that was introduced to gynecology in the late 1960s to treat CIN (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia). Tens of thousands of patients have been treated with cryotherapy, which has proved to be a predictable, reliable treatment technique, with limited side effects and morbidity. This method is used to treat cervical, vaginal, endometrial and vulvar lesions. This study aims at determining the current state of knowledge on the place of cryosurgery (cryotherapy) in gynecological practice. Research was carried out to find current data on indications, contraindications, techniques of treatment and equipment necessary to perform cryosurgical procedures in gynecology. Cryosurgery is a safe, relatively inexpensive and easy to perform procedure for treating women with lower genital tract pre-malignant diseases without impairing their fertility.
