Minimally invasive therapies to treat symptoms of uterine fibroids can be effective alternatives to major surgery. Such modalities include pharmacologic agents, uterine artery embolization (UAE), MR guided focused ultrasound, and laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation (Acessa procedure). Acessa is being used to treat women with symptomatic fibroids and was approved by the FDA in 2012.

Women with uterine fibroids (UF) may undergo less invasive procedures than hysterectomy, including myomectomy, endometrial ablation (EA), and uterine artery embolization (UAE); however, long-term need...
Uterine fibroids, the most common reproductive tract tumor in women, have been associated with hypertension and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD). Prior studies of fibroids and CVD have exa...
Most women will experience uterine fibroids by the age of 50, yet few data exist describing the overall patient experience with fibroids. The objective of this population-based survey was to character...
Endobiliary radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a new endoscopic ablative technique. However, the ideal power setting for RFA has not yet been clarified. Therefore, we intended to evaluate the effects of...
Radiofrequency ablation and microwave ablation are frequently prescribed for thoracic cancer. However, few writers have been able to draw on any systematic research into the differences between the tw...
This research study is being conducted to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of ablation (destruction) of uterine leiomyomas (fibroids) using electrocautery heating guided by ultrasound...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) using the Halt System for the treatment of patients with symptomatic uterine fibro...
The purpose of this observational, retrospective database study of patients with uterine fibroids is to compare the durability of symptom relief after uterus-conserving treatments for symp...
The primary objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that a minimum 75% volume radiofrequency ablation of fibroids associated with menorrhagia results in reduction of menstrual bl...
This study is designed to observe the presence or absence of intrauterine adhesions at 6 weeks after treatment with the Sonata® System through hysteroscopic evaluation by third party read...
Procedures used for the targeted destruction of the mucous membrane lining of the uterine cavity.
The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.
Removal of tissue by vaporization, abrasion, or destruction. Methods used include heating tissue by hot liquids or microwave thermal heating, freezing (CRYOABLATION), chemical ablation, and photoablation with LASERS.
Inflation of a balloon catheter within the uterine cavity to control UTERINE HEMORRHAGE.
Measurement or recording of contraction activity of the uterine muscle. It is used to determine progress of LABOR, OBSTETRIC and assess status of pregnancy. It is also used in conjunction with FETAL MONITORING to determine fetal response to stress of maternal uterine contractions.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
