THE NOVASURE DEVICE
Comfort, control, confidence
The NovaSure ADVANCED device, which include a 3-dimensional bipolar electrode, delivers continuous suction to ensure proper contact with the endometrium and to remove vaporised tissue. An integrated proactive safety test is performed prior to the delivery of radiofrequency (RF) energy; insufflating the cavity using CO2, the system can detect pressure leaks to confirm uterine cavity integrity. The assessment is sensitive enough to detect a perforation as small as an 18-gauge needle.
The NovaSure ADVANCED device is designed to focus on patient comfort and ease of use, providing the tools to allow you control at every step:
