Q. Can the MyoSure system remove large fibroids?
A. Yes. With the MyoSure XL device, the MyoSure system is designed to remove a 5 cm fibroid in 15 minutes or less of cutting time.
Q. What type of distension media should be used with the MyoSure system?
A. The MyoSure system removes pathology via mechanical energy vs. electrical energy and therefore can use saline which is a physiologic distension media. Saline or Ringer’s Lactate, according to BSGE fluid management guidelines, have a higher intravasation safety limit (2500 cc) than is available for non-electrolyte media such as glycine (1000 cc). It should be noted, however, that the MyoSure procedure is compatible with all distension media.1
Q. Can the MyoSure system truly be used with any hysteroscopy pump?
A. Yes, however some pumps have more optimal performance. Any pump which does not have the ability to control flow rate should be considered sub-optimal. Sub-optimal pumps may be adequate for smaller pathology less than 3 cm, but may present distension or visualisation challenges with larger and more complex pathology.
Can we perform the MyoSure procedure in an outpatient/ambulatory setting?
A. Yes, the MyoSure procedure can be performed as an outpatient treatment. Learn More
