Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The problem of retrograde seeding of endometrial tissue fragments to the peritoneum was investigated by injecting fluids through the cervical canal into the uterus before and after curettage. Fluid samples were collected from the peritoneal cavity through a laparoscope. Endometrial glands were detected in almost all of the fluid samples, and seeding was greater after curettage than before. Any procedure in which fluids are pushed through the uterus may cause peritoneal seeding of endometrium.
