Cavaterm™ is a minimally invasive treatment for Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding (DUB)

Cavaterm™ system

This second generation endometrial ablation technique consists of an adjustable, flexible silicone balloon catheter and a Cavabox.

The treatment combines heat and pressure during 10 minutes to irreversibly coagulate the endometrium and underlying myometrium to a depth of 5-8 mm.

Specific features are built in the system to ensure safety, efficacy and comfort.


The Cavaterm™ system has been successfully used since 1993. It is proven to be safe, efficient and easy to use. Over the past years further product developments based on users feedback were implemented for an optimal evolution of the system.

Many thousands of patients have been treated successfully with the Cavaterm™ system. Clinical studies report average success and satisfaction rates exceeding 90%, which remain stable throughout the years. 1,2,3
