STUDY OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy and safety of the NovaSure endometrial ablation system in women with severe dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB). STUDY DESIGN Prospective, single-arm, controlled, observational pilot study (Canadian Task Force classification II-1). SETTING Free-standing center for gynecologic endoscopy. PATIENTS One hundred(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to assess the safety, efficacy, and data durability of the NovaSure ablation at 3 years after the procedure in women with menorrhagia secondary to dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB). STUDY DESIGN A prospective, single-arm, observational pilot study (Canadian Task Force classification II-1) was carried out at a(More)

We have increased the performance of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery from about 15% to 20% of operations a year, especially hysteroscopies and laparoscopies, many of which are performed in a free-standing ambulatory unit. In 1992 our team performed 8057 outpatient operations, significantly more than in 1991. As the techniques are developed, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the safety, efficacy and data durability of the NovaSure endometrial ablation system 5 years after the procedure in women with severe menorrhagia secondary to dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB). STUDY DESIGN A prospective, single-arm, pilot study of 107 women undergoing endometrial ablation using the NovaSure system (Canadian Task(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that treating dysfunctional uterine bleeding by automated application of electrothermal energy to the uterine cavity, with precise regional control, might yield results equivalent to those reported for hysteroscopically directed laser and electrosurgical endometrial ablations. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with life style(More)
Different techniques of global endometrial ablation have been developed during the last 5 years, starting with the introduction of the thermal and the electrocoagulation balloon up to the latest development of bipolar coagulation techniques. Balloon application has many advantages to traditional hysteroscopic laser or electrotechniques. No pre-operative(More)
Hysterectomies performed in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology until the 19th century always had a lethal end. In the 20th century they were performed quite successful concerning survival but perhaps too frequently, whereas the 21st century has witnessed a steep decline in hysterectomy numbers. It is, therefore, an opportune time to review the(More)
