Colposcopy referral rate can be reduced by high-risk human papillomavirus triage in the management of recurrent atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance or low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion cytology in Finland
International Journal of STD & AIDS, 08/01/2012
Jakobsson M et al. – Authors conclude that hrHPV testing combined with repeat cervical cytology had a high negative predictive value in patients with recurrent low–grade cervical cytology. This could reduce the referral rate to colposcopy without jeopardizing patient safety.
