In brief: Perforation
Both can cause perforation of the uterus and both require considerable time to perform since it requires piece-meal & tedious treatment of the endometrium.
It requires an experienced surgeon with a good track record. Make sure you request information on the more modern methods of ablation which have safer profiles using hot water, thermal balloon, mesh, or freezing.
