In the case of gynaecological diseases, saline irrigation and lavage procedures are most frequently used in the treatment of chronic inflammatory conditions. For vaginal irrigation and lavage, a saline water at a concentration of between three and four per cent and a temperature of thirty-seven degrees Celsius is administered. The treatment lasts fifteen minutes and is carried out on a daily basis. The saline water has a smoothing and distending effect on the vaginal walls, improves the blood supply, reduces inflammation and eliminates pathological secretions.
