Abstract/OtherAbstract:
STUDY OBJECTIVE: To evaluate a new device for endometrial ablation. DESIGN: (Canadian Task Force classification II-1). SETTING: University-affiliated hospital. PATIENTS: Thirty-two women scheduled for hysterectomy. INTERVENTIONS: Endometrial ablation and hysterectomy. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: The new device for endometrial ablation was evaluated by studying depth of necrosis after staining for the oxidative enzyme NADH. Uniform endomyometrial necrosis was achieved at a depth of 2 to 4 mm with 90 degrees C saline circulated for 10 minutes. CONCLUSION: The procedure was successful in all patients, and there were no adverse clinical sequelae. (J Am Assoc Gynecol Laparosc 6(3):269-273, 1999)
