Outcome and Hemodynamic Alternation in Uterine Artery Following Hysteroscopic Roller-Ball Endometrial Ablation
To detect the outcome and changes in uterine arteries blood flow after hysteroscopic roller-ball endometrial ablation. 84 women with menorrhagia refused to continue or had failed medical treatment with uterine size <12 weeks were included in this study. Diagnostic hysteroscopy was done for women included in this study prior to endometrial ablation. A rigid operative hysteroscopy, with normal saline distention media and roller-ball electrode were used for endometrial ablation procedure. Preoperative findings of studied women including Doppler findings were compared to 3, 6 and 12 months post-operative findings to detect outcome and changes in uterine arteries blood flow after hysteroscopic roller-ball endometrial ablation.
