HTA Ablation

Hydro ThermAblator (HTA) endometrial ablation is performed to treat abnormal uterine bleeding. The HTA system destroys the inner lining of the uterus by circulating heated saline solution.

During the procedure, your doctor will slightly open your cervix and insert a telescope device into the uterus. The uterine cavity is then filled with room temperature saline to clean the uterus. The fluid will be heated to 90*C and circulated for 10 minutes to destroy the lining of the uterus. Once the treatment is complete, room temperature saline will be flushed through to cool off the uterus. All of the saline will then be removed. You may experience some cramping during the treatment portion of the procedure. You may have light spotting or discharge for days to a week after the procedure while the remainder of the treated uterine lining drains away.

HTA endometrial ablation is not a form of birth control so you still need to address contraceptive options with your health care provider. Schedule an appointment today to see if HTA ablation is an option for you to help control heavy or irregular bleeding.
