Diathermocoagulation

Diathermocoagulation (DTC) of the cervix is a therapeutic procedure during which with the help of a special ball-like electrode, the surface layer of the affected area of the cervix is burned.

 

The manipulation is performed under local or general anesthesia by a specialist doctor - gynecologist.

 

Prior performing diathermocoagulation, verbal and written explanations are given in advance regarding the nature of the procedure.

 

A written informed consent from the patient is mandatory.

Indications for DTC are different:

  • Large area ectopy ("wound") of the cervix associated with profuse vaginal bleeding;
  • Chronic vaginal discharge;
  • Vaginal bleeding after intercourse.
