A uterine curette is a narrow, spoon-shaped surgical instrument used in gynecological procedures to remove tissue lining the uterus (endometrium).

 

There are two main types of uterine curettes:

 

  • Sharp curette: This type of curette has a sharp edge that is used to scrape away tissue.
  • Blunt curette: This type of curette has a blunt edge that is used to gently remove tissue.

Uterine curettes are used in a variety of procedures, including:

  • Dilation and curettage (D&C): This is a procedure used to diagnose abnormal uterine bleeding, remove tissue for biopsy, or terminate an early pregnancy. During a D&C, the cervix is first dilated (opened) and then the curette is inserted into the uterus to remove tissue.
  • Endometrial ablation: This is a procedure used to destroy the lining of the uterus to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. A uterine curette may be used to remove any remaining endometrial tissue after another ablation technique has been used.
  • Placental removal: In some cases, a uterine curette may be used to remove a small amount of remaining placental tissue after childbirth.

 

Uterine curettes are a safe and effective way to remove tissue from the uterus. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with using a uterine curette, such as:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Perforation of the uterus (a hole in the uterus)
  • Damage to the cervix
