What is post ablation tubal ligation syndrome?

What is post ablation tubal ligation syndrome?

A pain syndrome.: A very small percentage of women will experience a pain syndrome after having a uterine ablation. It is not dangerous but can be very painful. Many women have pain with intercourse. Many women will require hysterectomy to treat this syndrome. ...Read more

Endometrial Ablation (Definition)

Endometrial ablation refers to procedures that use energy to damage or destroy the lining of the uterus that normally build up in preparation of pregnancy. If no pregnancy happens, the lining is shed as a period. There are several different types of ablation-thermal heat, radio frequency, and freezing. All of them are good options but some might be better in certain situations. ...Read more

Is endovenous laser ablation procedure painful?

Is endovenous laser ablation procedure painful?

No: There is minor discomfort from the initial puncture and during the course of getting the vein anesthetized. There should be no pain at all when the laser is running. People have varying amounts of bruising and discomfort after the procedure. This is almost never enough to interrupt regular activities. Laser ablation is much easier (both during the procedure and recovery) than surgical procedures s. ...Read more

PCOS, Endometriosis, Heavy Cycles, 33yo, tubal ligation 3 yrs ago. Would an endometrial ablation lessen my symptoms/cancer risks?

PCOS, Endometriosis, Heavy Cycles, 33yo, tubal ligation 3 yrs ago. Would an endometrial ablation lessen my symptoms/cancer risks?

Maybe not: Endometrial cancer can be obscured by endometrial ablations if it is not ruled out prior to the procedure by biopsy. Many women continue to have bleeding post endometrial ablation procedures, and the most likely conclusive treatment is hysterectomy if you no longer desire children. ...Read more

Recovery after an endometrial ablation ?

Recovery after an endometrial ablation ?

Should be quick: One of the advantages of the endometrial ablation is the quick recovery. This is a minimally invasive procedure; most patients are back to normal in about a week. There is some cramping that can be expected.If you are having bad cramps, pain or a foul discharge, these could be signs of an infection. Follow up with the surgeon who performed the procedure.They can and should tell you what to expect. ...Read more

Risks during the ablation and pacemaker implantation?

Risks during the ablation and pacemaker implantation?

Risks of ablation: Mostly the risks are the same as for other procedures, including infection and bleeding, but also rhythm disturbances of the heart and the development of fluid around the heart. In addition, the risks for pacemakers include pneumothorax or the presence of air around the lung. These are usually safe procedures which are performed by trained cardiologists. ...Read more

Catheter ablations for wpw?

Catheter ablations for wpw?

Yes: Catheter ablation is considered a first line therapy for symptomatic WPW syndrome. It's highly effective in the majority of cases. It's generally safe with a low incidence of serious complications and since WPW can (rarely) result in sudden death, the benefit of ablation justifies the small risk. ...Read more

What is the post ablation tubal sterilization syndrome?

What is the post ablation tubal sterilization syndrome?

Cyclic pain...: Some women with a history of both an ablation procedure and a tubal sterilization procedure will have pain around the same time each month. This is caused by menstrual bleeding in the tube that can't escape because the ablation blocked the tube on one side and the sterilization blocked it on the other. As a result, the tube can become distended with menstrual blood and this hurts! Best wishes! ...Read more

What is post-ablation (hta) tubal sterilization syndrome?

What is post-ablation (hta) tubal sterilization syndrome?

Uncommon but painful: Women with excessive vaginal bleeding may choose to remove (destroy, ablate) the uterine lining instead of removing the uterus. Months or years after ablation, small amounts of residual monthly bleeding in the uterus builds up fluid in the blocked (tied, sterilized) tubes, causing swelling and pain in the tubes. A women can ask her ob-gyn doctor what the risk is for different ablation techniques. ...Read more

Is prior tubal ligation a contraindication for having hta ?

Is prior tubal ligation a contraindication for having hta ?

No. : A prior tubal ligation is actually preferred if your are going to have an ablation. You need to have some form of a permanent birth control after your ablation. A tubal ligation obviously is a great choice. ...Read more

Anyone had the 'uterine fibroid embolization' procedure done before getting pregnant?

Anyone had the 'uterine fibroid embolization' procedure done before getting pregnant?

Yes: There are many women who have had successful pregnancies after uae. The data is relatively weak, but seems to indicate that fertility after embolization is similar to fertility after multiple myomectomy. A patient needs to discuss the details of her individual situation with her doctors before deciding on a therapy. ...Read more

How successful is the cath radiofrequency ablation for WPW treatment?

How successful is the cath radiofrequency ablation for WPW treatment?

Very effective: Catheter-mediated radiofrequency ablation is the preferred therapy for treatment of accessory pathways (ap). The success rate rivals that of surgery, with a comparable or lower mortality and a lower acute morbidity. Numerous series have reported success rates of 90 to 95 percent, depending upon the location of the ap and the precision of localization of the pathway. ...Read more

Any risks with davinci supracercival hysterectomy?

Any risks with davinci supracercival hysterectomy?

As with any surgery.: Supracervical hysterectomy means removal of the uterus above the cervix. Da vinci is a tool that allows difficult surgeries to be done through small incisions. Complications of any surgery involve, bleeding, infection, organ injury, and anesthetic risks. None of these are common in the hands of an experienced surgeon and team. ...Read more

How often do cardiac ablation surgeries result in complications requiring pacemakers implantation?

How often do cardiac ablation surgeries result in complications requiring pacemakers implantation?

It depends: It depends on the ablation type: almost never for wpw, atrial fibrillation/flutter or ventricular tachycardia; 1% or less for avnrt (atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia). In avnrt, there is an extra 'lane' in the av node that conducts electrical impulses leading to tachycardia and the ablation can unintentionally damage the whole av node resulting in heart block and need for pacemaker. ...Read more

What is the indication for surgical ablation (av node ablation) for atrial fibrillation?

What is the indication for surgical ablation (av node ablation) for atrial fibrillation?

Definitive Control: We don't generally do this with surgery, but rather with a "catheter" based procedure (wire we thread into the heart that cauterizes the av node). This procedure provides complete control of the heart rate in the lower chamber and excellent symptom control, but makes people dependent on the pacemaker that *must* be implanted with this procedure. ...Read more
