Risk Factors for Endometrial Hyperplasia Concomitant Endometrial Polyps in Pre- and Post-menopausal Women


Purpose: To evaluate the risk factors for endometrial hyperplasia concomitant endometrial polyps in preand post-menopausal women. Materials and
Methods: A total of 203 patients undergoing endometrial sampling before hysterectomy were evaluated in this retrospective study. Data recorded were age, gravidity, parity,body mass index (BMI: weight(kg)/height(m)2), endometrial thickness (ET), menopausal status, presence of adenomyosis and diabetes mellitus.
Results: Endometrial hyperplasia and polyps were detected in 13 patients. There were statistically significant differences in terms of age, menopausal status, morbid obesity and diabetes mellitus (p<0.005). Logistic regression demonstrated that menopausal status and presence of diabetes mellitus were independent risk factors.
Conclusions: According to the current study; menopause and diabetes mellitus are strong risk factors for the presence of concomitant endometrial polyps and endometrial hyperplasia.
