Hologic is releasing in the U.S. its MyoSure MANUAL device for in-office removal of intrauterine fibroids and polyps. It’s used with the company’s MyoSure hysteroscope, which provides direct visualization. The device has a blade that can be rotated a full 360° and the treatment doesn’t require cauterization.
The MyoSure MANUAL doesn’t require a separate vacuum or fluid management system, as it has a built-in vacuum that empties into a connected saline bag. There’s a tissue trap that can hold approximately four grams of resected material that can be popped off and sent straight to the pathology lab.
“The MyoSure MANUAL device is an exciting addition to Hologic’s growing portfolio of gynecologic solutions, developed with the patient and physician in mind,” in a statement said Sean Daugherty, President of GYN Surgical Solutions at Hologic. “This addition to the MyoSure product suite signals our ongoing commitment to providing effective surgical solutions that can be performed in office to address our customers’ needs and improve the overall patient experience.”
