Endometrial ablation is indicated for treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding or patient-perceived heavy menstrual bleeding in premenopausal women with normal endometrial cavities.
Endometrial ablation is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to reduce menstrual flow and is designed to treat abnormal uterine bleeding in women who do not desire future fertility. A number of options are available including resectoscopic, thermal balloon, cryotherapy, heated free fluid, microwave and radiofrequency electricity. Endometrial thinning, either mechanical or by suppression/inhibition of ovarian function, has been used as an adjuvant to ablation.
