Wing needle for fundal anaesthesia:
Thermablate EAS is a lightweight, fully automated, portable balloon treatment for heavy bleeding used to carry out global endometrial ablation in just 2 minutes. The device is entirely self-contained, requires minimal set-up, and plugs directly into an electrical wall outlet for immediate use.
It is included in RCOGs list of second generation ablation devices.
Thermablate EAS is easy to operate and fluid pressure and volume are entirely monitored by the unit itself, and need not be supervised continuously by the operator. Thermablate does not cause charring and adhesions post ablation, allowing for inspections of the cavity even after several years, reducing the need for hysterectomy.
Thermablate EAS has successfully reduced total treatment time of global ablation to less than 2.5 minutes, making it a simple, safe and effective procedure that can be conducted conveniently in an outpatient setting.
- Minimal set up required. Safely treats a variety of uterine shapes and sizes.
- The Treatment Control Unit heats the fluid prior to treatment and provides simple step-by-step instructions throughout the procedure
- The pre-filled Thermablate EAS disposable cartridge is comprised of a slim 6mm diameter catheter, silicone balloon and the glycerine fluid. The thin, pliable, silicone balloon inflates three times to ensure optimal contact with endometrial tissue even in large or irregular cavities.
Efficacy and Tolerability
In an international multicentre study, which included 120 women with menorrhagia, it was found that following Thermablate Balloon endometrial ablation the patient satisfaction rate was 85% (this is consistent with other ablation options as per RCOG here)
No intra or postoperative adverse events reported.
