Data from STOP-DUB demonstrated similar reductions (FIGURE 4).
The Surgical Treatments Outcomes Project for Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding (STOP-DUB) research group enrolled 237 women with DUB at 25 study sites between January 1998 and June 2001 in a trial to compare three forms of hysterectomy (vaginal, laparoscopic, and abdominal low approach) under general or regional anesthesia, to two forms of endometrial ablation (rectoscopic ablation using radiofrequency electrodesiccation/coagulation or vaporization, and nonrectoscopic endometrial ablation with a thermal balloon), Dr.
