You are listening to ReachMD’s Spotlight On. The following program is sponsored by Hologic.
In this episode, the spotlight is on Revolutionizing Hysteroscopic Tissue Removal Using the MyoSure® System. Originally published in Contemporary Ob/Gyn, the article is authored by doctors Charles E. Miller, Karyn M. Solky and Andreas Thurkow.
Abnormal uterine bleeding affects approximately 30% of women and has been associated with endometrial polyps, fibroids, particularly submucosal, retained products of conception (RPOC), endometritis, atrophic endometrium, endometrial carcinoma and various entities of endometrial hyperplasia.
Direct visualization via hysteroscopy is known to provide a minimally invasive approach to visualize the endometrial cavity and enable subsequent removal of structural uterine lesions using electrosurgical loop or hysteroscopic morcellation.
Hysteroscopic morcellation offers the advantage of simultaneous visualization and minimally invasive resection and/ or sampling of uterine lesions without the use of energy, thereby improving procedure efficiency and outcomes.
Three morcellation devices—the TRUCLEAR™ Hysteroscopic Morcellator, Symphion™ Tissue Removal System and the MyoSure® Hysteroscopic Tissue Removal System (or Myosure Tissue Removal System)—are currently available.
This supplement will review the technology, data and clinical experiences using the MyoSure Tissue Removal System.
The three authors provide in depth insight into the following topics: Dr. Charles E. Miller reviews Resection of Polyps and Fibroids as well as the In-office use of the Myosure System. Dr. Karyn M. Solky covers Endometrial Tissue Sampling for Pathology as well as Myosure Currettage. And lastly, Dr. Adreas Thurkow reviews Removal of RPOC. Don’t miss this insightful supplement, Revolutionizing Hysteroscopic Tissue Removal Using the MyoSure® System.
