If the injury be the result of curetting, it is wiser to do nothing.
(i) Uterine hmorrhage is the chief symptom which calls for curetting.
Sometimes this can be done by curetting under cocaine; in other cases by actual cauterization.
Also uterine hemorrhage, attended with cramps and expulsion of clots, has been relieved by it after curetting had failed.
curetting of the lower portion of the sinus without previous ligature of the jugular vein should never be done.
It is, therefore, more practical to consider the remedial indications for curetting from the point of view of symptoms.
curetting often cures this by removing the diseased endometrium.
curetting should follow dilatation, in the hope that the new endometrium formed may afford a better nidus for the ovum.
(ii) A leucorrhœal discharge is another symptom for which curetting is sometimes indicated.
The administration of moderate to large doses of potassium iodide, conjointly with curetting or excision of the diseased mass.
