A continuous-action CO2 laser of 15-20 W was used in 358 females on the treatment of largely benign or precancerous conditions of the cervix and external genitalia. The procedure is painless and produces no side-effects. There is no associated edema, bleeding or leukorrhea. The healing is fairly rapid and not accompanied by the development of secondary scars; menstrual and reproductive functions are not affected, so the method can be used in nulliparous women. Pre- and post-treatment control was made by means of colposcopic, cytologic, bacterioscopic, bacteriologic and histologic methods.
