PMID:  1183635     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The problem of retrograde seeding of endometrial tissue fragments to the peritoneum was investigated by injecting fluids through the cervical canal into the uterus before and after curettage. Fluid samples were collected from the peritoneal cavity through a laparoscope. Endometrial glands were detected in almost all of the fluids samples, and seeding was greater after curettage than before. It is concluded that any procedure in which fluids are pushed through the uterus may cause peritoneal seeding of endometrium.
