Using Minerva to Treat Heavy Periods

Minerva is an endometrial ablation procedure that can reduce or stop menstrual bleeding. It works by permanently removing the endometrium, or the lining of the uterus (the part that causes the bleeding), with a quick delivery of energy through the Minerva array create Plasma.

What to Expect from Minerva Endometrial Ablation for Heavy Menstrual Bleeding

The Plasma energy is contained in a soft conforming balloon. Your doctor will slightly open your cervix (the opening to the uterus), insert a slender wand to measure the length of your uterus and then insert and deploy the Minerva array inside the uterus. The Array expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus. Within the Array, radio frequency energy is delivered, which ionized the Argon gas to create Plasma. The impedance base controller will precisely deliver Plasma energy through the array for 120 seconds. The array is removed.

Total time from device insertion to device removal is 3-4 minute. You can go home the same day.
