A hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive treatment option for women suffering from abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) due to uterine abnormalities. During a hysteroscopy, your doctor uses a small device with an attached camera — known as a hysteroscope — to examine your uterus. If the scope reveals an abnormality such as polyps or fibroids, your doctor can remove the abnormal tissue during the same procedure.
The TruClear™ system gives doctors the ability to remove abnormal uterine tissue without making incisions. A scope is inserted through your cervix, allowing your doctor to see inside your uterus. Once the abnormality has been identified, your doctor will insert a small instrument through the scope to quickly remove it.
Many similar treatments use electricity to treat abnormalities within the uterus. Unlike these other treatments, the TruClear system does not use electricity during the procedure. That eliminates the risk of electrical burn injury to the uterus lining. The special design of the TruClear system instrumentation also helps minimize damage to the lining of the uterus while preserving the uterus.
If having a procedure with the TruClear system, learn what to expect before, during, and after your procedure.
