The trial of the efficiency of the drug estriol-ovestin in preoperative preparation of patients to transvaginal operations included 118 patients (mean age 48.6 years). 82 patients received ovestin as a vaginal suppository and creams in a daily dose of 500 mu for 2-3 weeks before the operation. 36 control patients did not receive ovestin in their preoperative preparation. Effectiveness of ovestin was assessed by duration of pain symptom in the postoperative period, duration of the vaginal postoperative discharge, duration of dysuria after removal of a urethral catheter, the time of renewal of sexual intercourses. The results of the study proved effectiveness of ovestin in preoperative preparation of patients for vaginal surgery.
