Contraceptive IUD Most Readed

Hysteroscopy Pictures

Mirena® (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) consists of a T-shaped polyethylene frame (T-body) with a steroid reservoir (hormone elastomer core) around the vertical stem. The reservoir consists of a white or almost white cylinder, made of a mixture of levonorgestrel and silicone (polydimethylsiloxane), containing a total of 52 mg levonorgestrel. The reservoir is covered by a semi-opaque silicone (polydimethylsiloxane) membrane. The T-body is 32 mm in both the horizontal and vertical directions. The polyethylene of the T-body is compounded with barium sulfate, which makes it radiopaque. A monofilament brown polyethylene removal thread is attached to a loop at the end of the vertical stem of the T-body

Morphological features found in most of the endometria were decidualisation of stroma (72 of 75 cases), atrophy of endometrial glands (65 of 75 cases), a surface papillary pattern (38 of 75 cases), and a stromal inflammatory cell infiltrate (59 of 75 cases). Additional common histological features were the presence of foci of stromal myxoid change (29 of 75 cases) and stromal haemosiderin pigment (24 of 75 cases). Reactive atypia of surface glands, glandular metaplastic changes, stromal necrosis, and stromal calcifications were found in small numbers of cases. (doi: 10.1136/jcp.56.4.305)
