Abstract:
OBJECTIVE: To compare the adequacy of cervical cytology sampling with two sampling instruments commonly used in primary care-namely, the Aylesbury spatula and the Cervex brush. DESIGN: Pair matched, population based randomised controlled trial. SETTING: 86 general practices and family planning clinics in Greater Manchester. SUBJECTS: 15 882 cervical smears taken from women aged 20-64 years as part of the national cervical screening programme. INTERVENTIONS: Participating centres were allocated to sample with either the Cervex brush or the Aylesbury spatula. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Inadequate smear rate. RESULTS: 5.4% and 5.5% (433/8086 and 426/7796) of smears taken with the Cervex brush and the Aylesbury spatula respectively were reported as inadequate (odds ratio 0.95; 95% confidence interval 0.74 to 1.22). CONCLUSION: The Cervex brush offers no advantage over the Aylesbury spatula in reducing inadequate smear rates in the primary care setting.
