Twenty-six women participated in a two-part study to determine the magnitude of absorption of irrigating fluid during endometrial laser ablation (ELA), and the effect on this absorption of controlling the intra-uterine pressure (IUP) during ablation. Six women participated in the first part of the study in which IUP was uncontrolled during surgery. The mean fluid deficit was 2027 ml. In the second part of the study, 20 women were allocated randomly to two groups. In the first group (nine women… CONTINUE READING
