The Effectiveness of Pap and Visual Inspection With Acetic Acid (VIAA) Tests in Cervical Dysplasia Screenings During the COVID-19 Pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic, this report was aimed at investigating the validity and reliability of the Papanicolaou test and visual inspection with acetic acid samples for cervical dysplasia screenings. This was a retrospective review of patients 21 years or older who attended the Luis Negative Care Center in Lima, Peru, between 2020 and 2021, who underwent cervical dysplasia screening. The results for Pap were 0. 87, 1. 0, 1. 0, and 0. 99, respectively, while VIAA had 0. 22, 0. 10, 0. 53, and 0. 10, respectively, according to results from 4,503 reports, the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values for Pap were 0. 87, 1. 0, 1. 0, 0. 99, and 0. 10, respectively. Patient age and the year of testing, respectively, made test validity differ slightly. Conclusion During the COVID-19 pandemic, the validity and reliability of Pap testing and VIAA for cervical dysplasia screening have dramatically reduced.
