Abstract

Abstract Endometrial hyperplasia is one of the most frequent reasons of pre- and menopausal bleeding. In recent years, knowledge of biology of hyperplastic endometrium has changed some medical guidelines in a group of patients diagnosed with endometrial lesions. In many cases radical procedures have been replaced with preservative treatment, especially for those women who wished to spare their uterus. Also, in many high-risk surgical procedures there are a number of algorithms which allow to perform non-radical treatment in those cases. Enforcement of those strategy should be linked to precise examination of endometrium morphology. Summarizing, a preservative treatment in case of endometrial hyperplasia needs sensitive and specific tests which determine safety limits of the procedure. This paper has presented current possibilities of examination and non-radical treatment of endometrial hyperplasia.
