Myosure Fibroid and Polyp Removal Procedure
Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths of the uterine wall.
While small fibroids are generally harmful, bigger ones could precipitate infertility, abdominal pain, and intermenstrual bleeding.
In the recent past, the treatment for this condition consisted of a hysterectomy; however, as our understanding of reproductive physiology advances, we possess better, faster, cheaper, and safer alternatives.
Perhaps the most innovative one is the Hologic Myosure tissue removal system.
This technique got the approval of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) back in 2009. The procedure focuses on removing fibroids and polyps without having to make an incision on your skin or apply general anesthesia.
Symptoms of Polyps Vs. Fibroids
Depending on the location and size of the fibroid tissues, women may experience the following signs and symptoms:
Severe pain in the pelvic area is a common symptom seen in women with fibroids, especially when the benign tumor starts to compress heavily innervated organs.
This pain is usually unresponsive to conventional painkillers.
Heavy menstrual bleeding
Unusually high amounts of blood during menstrual bleeding is also a common sign of fibroids since these tumors have a rich blood supply that may leak into the uterus during menstruations.
Frequent urges to urinate, burning sensation during micturition, and slow urine stream are typical signs of an abnormal mass that’s compressing the bladder and the urethra.
Dyspareunia is a medical term that describes a painful sensation during sexual intercourse.
Both fibroids and polyps interfere with the process of conception and cause pain, spotting, and other gynecological symptoms.
Removing Uterine Growths
The Myosure tissue removal system is an innovative way to treat fibroids and polyps in a less invasive manner. It is a small tool, requiring less dilation.
The entire process can take around 30 minutes.
Using the Hologic Myosure system, your healthcare provider will remove the excess tissue that’s triggering your pain and bleeding.
