Cavaterm - Endometrial Ablation

Cavaterm™ is a minimally invasive treatment for Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding (DUB). It works by ablating the endometrial lining of the uterus.

The Cavaterm endometrial ablation system consists of an adjustable, flexible silicone balloon catheter and a central unit.

The treatment works by combining heat and pressure during 10 minutes to irreversibly coagulate the endometrium and underlying myometrium to a depth of 5-8 mm.
 

Specific features are built in the system to ensure safety, efficacy and comfort

The Cavaterm™ system has been successfully used since 1993. It is proven to be efficient and easy to use. Constant improvements have been made to ensure Cavaterm continues to provide a proven solution for dysfunctional uterine bleeding. Clinical studies report average success and satisfaction rates exceeding 90%, which remain stable throughout the years.*
 

Key Benefits
