Abstract

Summary For many years electrosurgical procedures have been used to treat cervical changes. The equipment and the technique of performing these procedures have evolved considerably during the recent years. The Fisher cone and electrocoagulation of the cervix have been replaced with the LLETZ/LEEP procedure. Low cost, the simplicity of performance, high safety and high therapeutic effectiveness in treating precancerous cervical changes make the LLETZ/LEEP procedure a very good method of accomplishing the cervical cancer preventive program. The indications, contra-indications, the technique of performance along with postoperative complications after the LLETZ/LEEP procedure and the physical basics of electrosurgical procedures were thoroughly presented in the article.
