These techniques destroy the uterine lining can also be used in the absence of infection and if you do not want any more children (the conservation of the entire uterus is essential for the development of embryo). Finally, some processes require to dilate the cervix to allow passage of instruments or prior administration of hormonal drugs.
Moreover, none of the methods guarantees a 100% success (recurrence of bleeding after a period of improvement). If that fails, a secondary ablation of the uterus by traditional surgery is required. These techniques can also remove completely the rules.
Many techniques are possible but the key used in France are curettage, surgical resection and destruction by heat to the balloon.
Curettage and surgical resection: The process most classic and most often used in France is to perform a curettage with a curette. However, "if this technique is very simple to use, its failure rate is not negligible,"
Also, to overcome this problem, surgeons often prefer to remove the uterine lining in more depth, for example by performing successive coagulation with a small instrument which delivers heat and electricity (Roller Ball). This method is currently the reference technique for removing uterine bleeding rebels and the success rate exceeds 80% at two years. However, this surgical method creates the risk of uterine perforation and bleeding occurred.
Resection of the endometrium is generally done under local anesthesia or general and requires a hospital stay of 24 to 48 hours. Returning to work is generally possible after 2 to 3 days.
