Toma de muestra con aguja del cuello uterino

La culdocentesis es un procedimiento a través del cual se determina la presencia de líquido anormal en el espacio que se encuentra justo detrás de la vagina, el fondo del saco posterior. Este procedimiento se realiza cuando hay dolor en la parte baja del abdomen y región pélvica y otros exámenes sugieren que puede haber líquido en el fondo del saco. Este examen también puede realizarse cuando se sospecha de la ruptura de un embarazo ectópico o de un quiste ovárico.Toma de muestra con aguja del cuello uterino
