Pap Smear, HPV

Endocervix (canal of the cervix) is the cavity of the cervix, connecting the internal and external openings. It is fusiform in shape and has posterior and oblique longitudinal ridges. They are not exactly apposed but inter-lock like a zipper so that the endocervix is kept closed. The cervical os is scraped by a swab during a pap smear exam for HPV.
