Abstract

BACKGROUND: Loop electosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) of the transformation zone has become the preferred treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). CASE: An inadvertent vesicovaginal laceration occurred during LEEP of CIN2 in a 57-year-old-woman with a cystocele. We developed a traction suture of the cervix that we used during LEEP that permits manipulation of the cervix outward, away from the nearby protruding tissues. CONCLUSION: Traction suture during LEEP may reduce inadvertent lacerations in patients with cystocele, rectocele, and other protruding tissues.
