[Transrectal ultrasound-guided puncture and anhydrous alcohol sclerotherapy for Müllerian duct cyst].Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue. 2012 Jun; 18(6):511-3.ZN
To explore the effect of anhydrous alcohol sclerotherapy following transrectal ultrasound-guided puncture in the treatment of Mülllerian duct cyst.
Totally 44 patients with Müllerian duct cyst underwent transrectal ultrasound-guided puncture and sclerotherapy, 21 injected with anhydrous alcohol of half the volume of the aspirated cystic fluid followed by aspiration of all the fluid 5 minutes later (treatment group) , and the other 23 treated by cystic fluid aspiration only (control group). The clinical effects of the two methods were compared.
The response rate and cure rate were 80.95 and 52.38% in the treatment group, as compared with 56.52 and 26.09% in the control (P < 0.001). No adverse events were observed in either of the two groups.
Transrectal ultrasound-guided puncture and anhydrous alcohol sclerotherapy is a safe and effective approach to the treatment of Mülllerian duct cyst.
