The dilation and curettage procedure is called a D& C. The D stands for dilation, which means enlarging. Curettage (the C) means scraping. Together, this procedure involves expanding or enlarging the entrance of a woman' s uterus so that a thin, sharp instrument can scrape or suction away the lining of the uterus and take tissue samples.

It' s used to scape the uterus when a women has had a first trimester pregnancy loss.
