Among 50 patients followed for 10 years after total rollerball endometrial ablation
, 2 developed symptomatic cornual hematometras and 3 developed postablation tubal sterilization syndrome (PATSS), he reported at the annual meeting of the Pacific Coast Obstetrical and Gynecological Society.
10, 2010 - 11:11 AM (Plenary Session 2 - Hysteroscopy): "Retrospective Comparative Study between Impedance Radiofrequency Probe (NovaSure) and Microwave Endometrial Ablation
for the Treatment of Heavy Menstrual Period"
Long-term oral drug treatment for menstrual disorders is hampered by side effects, and the failure of medical therapy is usually considered an indication for surgery--either hysterectomy or endometrial ablation

He also doesn't worry about global ablation in postmenopausal women; 10 studies of endometrial ablation
have included postmenopausal women.
Thousands of women each year avoid unnecessary hysterectomies by choosing Hologic's NovaSure endometrial ablation
Hologic's NovaSure endometrial ablation
system offers a safe, effective and minimally invasive treatment alternative for lifestyle-restricting menstrual periods
presented a study assessing the ability of performing the NovaSure Endometrial Ablation
in-office under local anesthesia.
Microwave endometrial ablation
takes an average of 3-5 minutes to perform.
In many cases endometrial ablation
causes menstrual periods to become much lighter and more regular, rather than eliminating them altogether.
The NovaSure(E1/2) Impedance Controlled Endometrial Ablation
System, or the NovaSure(E1/2) System, is an innovative endometrial ablation
device to treat menorrhagia, or excessive menstrual bleeding.
In a study of 52 patients who underwent endometrial ablation
alone, 88 patients who underwent combined endometrial ablation
and myolysis, and 28 patients who underwent myolysis with resection of sub-mucous myomas, the need for reoperation was significantly lower with myolysis plus ablation than with the other approaches.
Today, it is estimated that 85% of endometrial ablation
procedures are performed in a hospital or surgery center," said Ric Cote, President and CEO of Channel Medsystems.
