2. Knowledge about Cervical Cancer and Pap Smear and the Factors Influencing the Pap test Screening among Women (PubMed)

of the participants was 34.08±7.81 years. Almost 50.4% of the subjects had a history of Pap smear test. Pap test performance was significantly higher in those who had higher knowledge (P<0.001). Knowledge about cervical cancer, Pap smear and age was the most important predictors of the Pap test performance (P<0.001). The most important barrier and facilitator to Pap smear test were inadequate knowledge and the recommendations received from family, friends and healthcare professionals (44.3% and 40.2 (...) %, respectively).Knowledge about Pap smear and cervical cancer was important in predicting Pap test doing. In addition, inadequate knowledge was introduced as the most important barrier to screening test from the perspective of women. Therefore, we suggest that health education and health promotion studies as interdisciplinary and targeted interventions should be implemented to improve the women's knowledge.

4. Plastic spatula with narrow long tip provides higher satisfactory smears for Pap test (PubMed)

Plastic spatula with narrow long tip provides higher satisfactory smears for Pap test Ayre spatula for cervical smear collection is being used despite the suggestion that different modified spatulas provide more satisfactory sampling.To see whether the cytological pickup improves with the use of long tipped spatula.Rurally based University Hospital; crossover study.Pap smear using Ayre spatula in 500 and with plastic narrow long tip (Szalay) spatula in 500 clinic attending women was taken (...) and analyzed. Crossover smears were taken with modified spatula in 163 and using Ayre spatula in 187 women after 2 weeks of initial smears. The same pathologist made cytological reporting for all smears and was unaware of the type of spatula used.Smears from Ayre spatula had significantly higher reports of inadequate smears (94 of 500 vs. 68 of 500 for Ayre and Szalay, respectively; P = 0.032) and it remained so even after crossover (94 of 187 vs. 70 of 163 for Ayre and Szalay, respectively; P = 0.2

6. Unsatisfactory rate in liquid-based cervical samples as compared to conventional smears: A study from tertiary care hospital (PubMed)

Unsatisfactory rate in liquid-based cervical samples as compared to conventional smears: A study from tertiary care hospital Developed countries adopted liquid-based cytology (LBC) cervical cytology, partly because of its lower proportions of unsatisfactory (U/S)/inadequate samples. This study was carried out to evaluate effect on the rate of U/S samples after introduction of LBC in our laboratory.An audit of U/S cervical samples was performed, which included split samples (n = 1000), only (...) conventional Pap smear (CPS) smears (n = 1000), and only LBC samples (n = 1000). The smears were reviewed by two observers independently, and adequacy for the samples was assessed as per The Bethesda System 2001. The reasons for U/S rate in split samples were categorized into various cytologic and/or technical reasons.U/S rate was far less in only LBC samples (1.2%) as compared to only CPS (10.5%) cases. Cases in the satisfactory but limited category were also less in only LBC (0.4%) as compared to only

results analyzed, in 21,503 (57.4%) findings were within normal limits, while 153 (0.41%) showed epithelial cell abnormalities and 15,358 (41%) showed inflammation. Four hundred and twenty-four (1.1%) cases were reported to have inadequate Pap smear samples for evaluation. Of the epithelial cell abnormalities, 136 (88.8%) were squamous cell abnormalities and 17 (11.1%) were glandular cell abnormalities.

9. Incidence of cytological abnormalities within 24 months of a normal cervical smear in Soweto, South Africa. (PubMed)

Incidence of cytological abnormalities within 24 months of a normal cervical smear in Soweto, South Africa. A screening programme for cervical cancer has been implemented in South Africa (SA) with intervals of 10 years after a normal cytological result.
