Demirkiran F ., et al. – The researchers concluded that pipelle biopsy and D&C showed almost equal success rate in the diagnosis of endometrial pathologies. Neither pipelle nor D&C is adequate method for focal endometrial pathologies. Both biopsy methods are not perfect, but pipelle biopsy is a cheaper and easy technique compared with D&C, and ultrasonographic findings of endometrium should be considered prior to endometrial biopsy.
