Uterus ablation is destroying the endometrium, the internal lining
of the uterus, in order
to help the patient. Frequent terms for uterus ablation are uterine
ablation and endometrial ablation, and technically, these can be
done through a plethora of methods, such as:
. Thermal ablation
. Hydrothermal ablation
Technique (Roller Ball or Barrel)
Hysteroscopy (see the Endometrial Ablation For Fibroids Video)
. Microwave ablation
The most frequent disorder where uterus ablation would be applied
to, is menorrhagia,
heavy menstrual bleeding. Usually, a menstrual bleeding lasts
for a few days and then is gone, but in some cases, it not only
lasts longer but grows heavier and makes life really difficult.
Some women literally cannot go out of the house because of the
heavy bleeding! It is one thing to have the bleeding that everybody
else is having, it quite another thing not to be able to go shopping,
not to be able to go to work and so on.
Endometrial Ablation for Avoiding Hysterectomy
If there is no tissue that bleeds, that there will be no more
bleeding, so if the part of the uterus that actually
bleeds, endometrium, is removed the patient
will be better. Endometrial ablation is a very good technique
and can be classified as a minimally invasive surgical technique.
After ablation you wouldn't have endometrium, but would continue
to have the rest of the uterus, not to mention that you would
have your ovaries intact. Instead of heading to surgical
menopause with hysterectomy, your hormonal balance would
remain largely intact after ablation of the uterus.
