PMID:  18097908     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A small pilot study to compare the use of infant feeding tubes (IFT) for endometrial biopsy compared with the standard Pipelle tubes was calculated. We assessed patients' pain scores and the number of successful samples obtained. This study highlights that an IFT may be more comfortable for the patient and be equally as effective at obtaining an adequate biopsy sample but a larger randomised study is needed to explore this further.
