NovaSure Procedure Efficacy

What you need to know about the NovaSure procedure

The pivotal study supporting FDA approval of the NovaSure system resulted in 1-year success rates of 77.7% and 1-year amenorrhea rates of 36%. To date, more than 3 million procedures have been performed.1


Comfort, control, confidence

The NovaSure ADVANCED and CLASSIC devices, which include a 3-dimensional bipolar electrode, deliver continuous suction to ensure proper contact with the endometrium and to remove vaporized 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.

Both the NovaSure CLASSIC device and the NovaSure ADVANCED device are designed to focus on patient comfort and ease of use, providing the tools to allow you control at every step:

Smooth Access™ Tips

Smooth Access tips require significantly less manipulation, providing greater comfort to your patients. The NovaSure ADVANCED device has rounded tips for easier insertion.

Smaller Diameter

The sheath material is designed to provide maximum durability, especially at higher temperatures. The NovaSure ADVANCED device has a smaller diameter than the NovaSure CLASSIC device and requires less dilation.

SureFit™ Cervical Seal

SureFit cervical seal is designed from a soft material contributing to procedure efficiency and patient comfort. The NovaSure ADVANCED device provides an increased sealing surface.1

Ergonomic Thumb Tab

With its ergonomic thumb tab, the device gives you greater leverage and control of the cervical collar.

Customized Ablation for Each Patient

The NovaSure device delivers a customized ablation, ensuring optimal results based on the patient’s individual uterine cavity length and width.

Safety Features

Proactive safety cavity integrity assessment evaluates uterine cavity integrity prior to procedure. Our Moisture Transport™ fluid removal system maintains contact between the uterus and the array, while simultaneously evacuating by-products of the procedure, preventing uterine distention. Removal of steam during the procedure is essential to maintaining a controlled ablation.
