Catheters, Intrauterine, Endometrial Ablation, Thermal Balloon
Definition : Endometrial-blation intrauterine catheters that include a thermically controlled latex balloon. These catheters typically consist of a 9 Fr plastic tube with a balloon attached on or near its tip; they usually include two lumens, one for the electrical connections and one as the temperature transducer (e.g., thermistor); the proximal end of the catheter is connected to a pressure, time, and thermal control.
