Instructions for use

Before performing the Cavaterm™ treatment please carefully read the instructions for use. The Cavaterm™ procedure requires a few simple steps.

Insertion of a Cavaterm catheter into the uterine cavity

 

 

Insert the balloon catheter into the uterine cavity until the fundus is reached.

 

Balloon catheter inside uterine cavity during a treatment (heating and circulation)

 

Fill the balloon with glucose 5% solution until a stabilized pressure between 230-240 mmHg is reached and press the start key. The glucose is then circulated and automatically heated up to the target temperature of 78°C which is sufficient to irreversibly coagulate the endometrial lining.


 

Removal of a Cavaterm catheter from uterine cavity

 

At the end of the 10 minutes treatment time, the system stops automatically. Press the stop key, deflate the balloon by retrieving the fluid and remove the catheter from the uterus.
