A member asked:

Heavy bleeding for 3 weeks now. tvs ultrasound shows endo lining 29mm, cyst & fibroid. hysteroscopy was done. result says "scant fragments of inactive endometrium with stromal breakdown. abundant blood clot." does that essentially mean inconclusive?

No, it means no malignant cells seen, i.e. the vaginal bleeding is not due to endometrial carcinoma.

Your description suggests that a sufficient sample was not submitted to the pathologist. A pathologist can only opine on the material submitted. Inadequate specimen is, as you surmised, inconclusive.
