Endometrial ablation

Abstract

Endometrial ablation has been controversial because of disagreement concerning proper patient selection, lack of data on long-term results, and continuing divergent opinion regarding proper instrumentation and techniques. On the other hand, the operation is fast, safe, often avoids the major surgical procedure of hysterectomy, and is performed on an outpatient basis with minimal recovery time. These factors are of great advantage to the properly selected patient. Any result of the procedure other than complete amenorrhea may be difficult to evaluate because of patient and physician subjectivity.
