    Abstract

    Fifty patients with cervical erosions causing symptoms were treated with cryosurgery. Healing was complete in 41 (91%) out of 45 patients who were seen six weeks later, and in 21 patients who were followed up in greater detail the rate of symptomatic relief was high. All the patients who were treated without anaesthesia found the procedure acceptable. Only one patient noted post-operative bleeding, and this was minimal.
