Manually driven versus motor driven hysteroscopic tissue removal system for polypectomy : long-term results

Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

Objective: The aim of this follow-up study is to compare a manually driven hysteroscopic tissue removal system (ResectrTM 9 Fr) with a motor driven system (TruclearTM) in terms of long-term clinical outcomes such as abnormal uterine bleeding and polyp recurrence. Study design: This is a follow-up of a multicenter randomized controlled trial comparing a manually and motor driven hysteroscopic tissue removal system for polypectomy. This prospective cohort study was performed at Ghent University Hospital (Ghent, Belgium) and Catharina Hospital Eindhoven (Eindhoven, the Netherlands). The trial was registered at Clinicaltrials.gov (Trial ID = NCT05337605, April 2022). Seventy-five women with abnormal uterine bleeding who participated in the randomized controlled trial and had pathological confirmation of the diagnosis of an endometrial polyp, were contacted. Fifty-five women (70.67 %) were willing to participate in this follow-up study. The primary outcome was the recurrence and/or persistence of abnormal uterine bleeding and the time to the recurrence of abnormal uterine bleeding. Secondary outcomes were polyp recurrence and time to polyp recurrence, symptom relief, satisfaction score regarding symptom relief and general satisfaction score regarding the surgical procedure. Results: In the manually driven group, the mean time to the recurrence or persistence of abnormal uterine bleeding was 26 months (95 % CI 20 - 32). In the motor driven group, the mean time to the recurrence or persistence of abnormal uterine bleeding was 29 months (95 % CI 23- 34). A log-rank test showed a non-significant difference between both groups (P =.77). There was no significant difference in polyp recurrence (P =.22) or symptom relief between the two groups (P =.67). Additionally, the groups did not differ in satisfaction scores regarding symptoms or polypectomy (P =.16 and P =.61, respectively). Conclusion: This long-term follow-up study showed no statistically significant difference in the recurrence and persistence of abnormal uterine bleeding between a manually and motor driven hysteroscopic tissue removal system for polypectomy.
