Endometrial ablation, incorrectly referred to as uterine ablation, is performed at the gynecologist's office and can be done through different methods and devices. This picture shows the most common ones, though not the only options available:
- a slender wand is inserted in the cervix to extend a triangular-shaped netted device inside.
- Thermal balloon
- hot water is circulated inside a hydrothermal balloon.
- Hydrothermal ablation
- it involves the circulation of hot water (a saline solution heated to 90°C) for 10 minutes.
