Abstract: OBJECTIVE: Evaluate in outpatients , the endometrial morphology and histology of non- bleeding postmenopausal women. METHODS: We conducted a descriptive study where 52 menopausal women were selected, between 50 and 60 years of age, who had not used hormone replacement therapy in the last six months and did not present any kind of vaginal bleeding after menopause. These women underwent ultrasound examination, hysteroscopy and biopsy, and then endometrial findings were analyzed. RESULTS: Of the 52 women selected, thirty two (61,5%) had normal ultrasound, normal uterine cavity with atrophic endometrium, hysteroscopy, confirmed by endometrial biopsy. Twenty (38,4%) had hysteroscopuc and histologic alterations and only five women showed by ultrasound an endometrial thickness of more than five millimeters. CONCLUSION: Diagnostic Hysteroscopy associated with aspiration biopsy (Pipelle) performed in the day care facility can reveal endometrial alterations that cannot be diagnosed by transvaginal ultrasound.
OBJETIVO: Avaliar ambulatorialmente a morfologia e histologia endometrial de mulheres sem sangramento genital após a menopausa. MÉTODOS: Em estudo descritivo foram selecionadas 52 mulheres, após a menopausa, entre 50 e 60 anos, sem terapia hormonal nos últimos seis meses. Todas foram submetidas a exame ultrassonográfico, histeroscópico e biópsias endometriais. RESULTADOS: Das 52 mulheres selecionadas 32 (61,5%) apresentaram ultrassonografia normal, cavidade uterina normal com endométrio atrófico à histeroscopia, confirmada pela biópsia endometrial. Vinte (38,4%) apresentaram achados histeroscópicos ou histológicos anormais, sendo que apenas cinco destas mostraram endométrio com espessura superior a cinco milímetros ao ultrassom. CONCLUSÃO: A histeroscopia diagnóstica associada à biópsia aspirativa (Pipelle) pode evidenciar alterações não observadas ao ultrassom transvaginal.
