In one study from Kaiser Permanente of Northern California, 21% of women who underwent endometrial ablation for menorrhagia later underwent hysterectomy, and 3.9% underwent other uterine-sparing procedures to alleviate heavy bleeding?
In three of his patients with previous tubal ligations, the same problem caused retrograde bleeding into the proximal tubal segment 7-44 months after endometrial ablation. Patients presented with abdominal pain.
A device that uses microwaves to achieve endometrial ablation is just as effective as endometrial resection but can perform the procedure more quickly with fewer postoperative complications, results of a randomized trial suggest.
New endometrial ablation technology shows promising benefits
District Court for the District of Delaware awarded Hologic $4.8M in damages for Minerva Surgical's (NERV) infringement of two Hologic patents related to endometrial ablation technology.
Data at the nine clinical centers--representing rural and urban populations--are being collected regarding hysterectomy, myomectomy (abdominal, hysteroscopic, vaginal, and laparoscopic/robotic), endometrial ablation, radio-frequency fibroid ablation, uterine artery embolization, magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound, and therapeutic use of progestin-releasing intrauterine devices.
Endometrial ablation is a "procedure that surgically destroys (ablates) the lining of your uterus (endometrium).
Other treatment options, including hormone medications, hysteroscopy (a procedure in which fibroids and other non-cancerous growths are removed from the uterus via the vagina), endometrial ablation (a procedure that destroys the lining of the uterus and reduces or stops bleeding), and use of an intrauterine device, are less invasive alternatives recommended for these conditions by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Endometrial ablation for women with abnormal uterine bleeding can be accomplished under hysteroscopic visualization using resectoscopic instruments, or can be performed with a nonresectoscopic ablation device, which when inserted into the uterine cavity delivers energy to uniformly destroy the endometrium.
Specialists in obstetrics and gynecology, pelvic medicine, and urology in the US address patient safety, legal issues, ultrasound, hysteroscopy, colposcopy and loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP), long-acting reversible contraception, transcervical sterilization, endometrial ablation, bone mineral density assessment, intrauterine insemination, urodynamic testing, diagnostic cysturethroscopy, stress urinary incontinence and overactive bladder treatments, conservative management of pelvic organ prolapse, interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome, treatment of pelvic floor muscle spasm, and cosmetic procedures.
