About NovaSure Ablation Injury
From the extensive list of possible complications and side effects, there have been numerous cases filed due to negative outcomes from NovaSure endometrial ablation. Pain and suffering from a supposedly safe procedure is not something to be complacent about. Any form of harm or injury being faced, or extensive treatment that is required post-surgery may be eligible for compensation.
What Is Endometrial Ablation?
Ablation is the surgical removal of body tissue.
When involved with endometriosis, which is a disorder in which the inner lining tissue of the uterus begins to grow outside of the uterus, it is called endometrial ablation. Endometrial ablation is surgery that destroys a thin layer of tissue that lines the uterus. This surgery is meant to reduce heavy bleeding and pain caused by the extensive growth of uterus tissue experienced by women with endometriosis.
There has been extensive, dangerous outcomes from NovaSure procedures.
Some of the post-procedural side effects of NovaSure have been:
● Coughing up blood
● Pus in urine
● Hematometra – blood pools or blood retention in uterus
● Severe cramping
● Bladder hernias – bulging of the bladder through an abnormal opening
● Rectocele – weakened tissues between rectum and vagina
● Hysterectomies – removal of the uterus
● Heavy Bleeding
● Fatigue – extreme tiredness
● Incontinence – inability to control urination or defecation
● UTI – urinary tract infections
● Fibroids – non-cancerous growths in the uterus
● Hemorrhages – blood escaping from ruptured blood vessels
About NovaSure Procedure
NovaSure is a type of endometrial ablation. It is marketed as a one-time, 90 second to 5-minute procedure. Having to experience a surgery as invasive as endometrial ablation, the efficiency of the NovaSure procedure itself is a big selling point. However, the side-effects we have seen from patients whose procedures did not fare well prove that the efficiency factor was blinding. NovaSure has conducted over 2.5 million procedures, and utilizes bipolar radio frequency (RF) energy. Usually women that are experiencing heavy bleeding, which is one symptom of endometriosis, receive surgery to remove the lining of tissue to prevent further bleeding, or in the least, reduce the amount of blood flow. Many doctors have been told to perform NovaSure endometrial ablation, ensuring its safety. However, most women comply with the surgery without a second-glance at the contraindications due to the already excruciating pain they are in living with having endometriosis. In their eyes, NovaSure may be their last hope.
