Treatments, operations and tests

This set of tests tells us all about the health of the red and white cells within whole blood. The quality, size and numbers of cells can be determined. This information helps in the diagnosis of a number of conditions for example - anaemia and infection.
Liver function tests (LFTs or LFs), are groups of clinical biochemistry laboratory blood assays designed to give information about the state of a patient's liver. Most liver diseases cause only mild symptoms initially, but it is vital that these diseases be detected early. Hepatic (liver) involvement in some diseases can be of crucial importance.
U&E is often used as a screening test for patients who are generally unwell, to detect abnormalities of blood chemistry, including kidney failure and dehydration. U&E is usually performed to confirm normal kidney function (renal function) or to exclude a serious imbalance of biochemical salts in the bloodstream. A diverse number of conditions may be detected on the U&E test, as each parameter tested may be high or low.
During 2008 and 2009 the UK has seen the widespread use of two new vaccines to prevent cancer of the cervix (neck of the womb): Gardasil and Cervarix. They both work by protecting against two specific subtypes of the human papilloma virus (HPV) namely HPV 16 and 18 that cause most cases (70 per cent) of cervical cancer. Gardasil also guards against HPV types 6 and 11.
Cervical cancer have rarely, if ever, been screened. These women may not obtain pelvic examinations partly because of the cost. The use of liquid-based cytologic screening adds upfront costs, and, therefore, could lead to a paradoxical increase in mortality from this disease if this cost prevented more women from being screened. For example, most women in the United States who die from cervical cancer have rarely, if ever, been screened.
In a biopsy, only small areas are removed on the outside of the cervix to test under the microscope. If we find pre-malignant changes in the inner canal of the cervix we need to remove a bigger, cone shaped piece of tissue. This is called a cone biopsy. All unhealthy tissues are removed before it changes into invasive cancer. The removed tissue is send to the laboratory for examination under the microscope. Sometimes, the laboratory results suggest that some diseased tissue has been left behind after a cone biopsy. A further biopsy may be needed. Very rarely, the laboratory results show that the disease is beyond the pre-cancer stage. Further treatment is then necessary.

Having a gonorrhoea test is advised if you think you have been at risk of acquiring. The infection gonorrhoea is a common sexually transmitted infection. It is passed from person to person through unprotected vaginal, oral or anal sex. Gonorrhoea can infect the vagina, cervix, urethra, rectum, throat and even the eye. Up to 50% of infected women and 10% of infected men experience no symptoms.
HIV tests are used to detect the presence of the human immunodeficiency virus in serum, saliva, or urine. Such tests may detect HIV antibodies, antigens, or RNA.
Large loop excision of the transformation zone (LLETZ) is the most common treatment for abnormal cervical cells. LLETZ can be carried out at the same time as a colposcopy and involves removing the area of the cervix affected by abnormal cells. This is done using a thin wire loop that's heated with an electric current. This procedure only takes 5-10 minutes and is usually carried out as an outpatient procedure under a local anaesthetic.

Vaginal and vulval warts are usually caused by a viral infection that can be spread through sexual intercourse. Patients who require vaginal and vulval wart removal surgery should encourage their sexual partner(s) to check for warts as well or risk being re-infected. Warts that are left untreated tend to grow bigger and can become painful. During vaginal and vulval wart removal surgery, patients usually receive general anesthesia. The gynecologist uses an electric current to carefully burn away the warts.
Vaginoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that tightens the vaginal muscles and surrounding tissues. The surgery is popular amongst women who who feel that their vagina has become looser following childbirth, or through the aging process. This lack of tightness in the vagina can result in reduced sensation during sexual intercourse.
A Vaginoscopy is a viewing instrument to visualize the vaginal canal. Most commonly, it is a form of endoscope. A Vaginoscopy is performed to diagnose anatomical abnormalities or lesions affecting the vaginal wall. The procedure is most commonly performed in children.
