  • Causa
    As part of post-market monitoring bayer healthcare has identified that women who undergo both an essure procedure and an endometrial ablation during the same surgical session may be at increased risks for events known to be associated with each procedure including damage to non-targeted tissue. performing endometrial ablation after an essure procedure may be associated with compromised ability to conduct and interpret a modified hysterosalpingogram (hsg); injury to surrounding tissue (e.G. bowel); increased risk of infection; post-ablation tubal sterilisation syndrome; stretching or removal of the essure micro-insert that could affect the patient’s ability to rely on essure for contraception. the above risks are assessed as low but should be considered in any woman having undergone both an essure procedure and an endometrial ablation.
