Transcervical sterilization: a comparison of essure(r) permanent birth control system and adiana(r) permanent contraception system.

Abstract

Transcervical sterilization has moved female sterilization from a minimally invasive laparoscopic technique, which requires entry into the abdominal cavity, to a less invasive hysteroscopic procedure. Along with the decreased potential for complications, its ease of performance with minimal anesthesia has facilitated a move from the operating room to the office. This review compares the available data on transcervical sterilization procedures to better understand the strengths and weakness of each system.
