Brief Summary:
  1. To compare the recurrence rate between the use of laser vaporization and ultrasonic surgical aspiration in the treatment of vulvar and vaginal dysplasias
  2. To compare healing related complications, post-operative pain, and scarring between the two procedures.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Vulvar Dysplasia Vaginal Dysplasia Procedure: CO2 laser surgery Procedure: ultrasonic surgical aspiration Phase 3

Detailed Description:

First line of treatment for vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN) and vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia (VAIN) is not well defined. Laser vaporization and ultrasonic surgical aspiration are both accepted surgical modalities used in the treatment of vulvar and vaginal dysplasias, however no prospective study has been done to compare the two procedures. The specific aims of this research study include:

  1. To compare the recurrence rate between the use of laser vaporization and ultrasonic surgical aspiration in the treatment of vulvar and vaginal dysplasias in a prospective, multi-institutional, randomized clinical trial.
  2. To compare healing related complications, post-operative pain, and scarring between the two procedures.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who present with vulvar or vaginal dysplasias or condylomas that require surgical intervention will be informed of the study by the treating physician
