OBJECTIVE: To compare two endometrial cytologic sampling devices, the Uterobrush and Endocyte, for their clinical applicability. STUDY DESIGN: Specimen collection and comparison in 60 women. RESULTS: Collection of specimens with both devices succeeded in 100% of cases and was practically painless. The cells’ appearance with the Endocyte tended to be dense. Nevertheless, the amount of cells collected with both devices was adequate for diagnosis except in a few cases. CONCLUSION: The Uterobrush method is simple and painless and therefore very acceptable to patients and suitable for clinical use.
