Aspirators, Uterine

Definition : Aspirators used to evacuate gas, fluid, tissue, or foreign materials from the uterus by means of suction. These aspirators typically include a powered high-vacuum (less than or equal to 400 mm Hg) and high-flow (>30 liter/min) vacuum pump; collection canisters; plastic tubes connecting the components to each other; an overflow protection and/or bacteria filter; and suction tubing (e.g., tubes, catheters, cannulae). The aspirators are usually mobile units that may be line- or battery-powered, and mobile. Uterine aspirators are used mainly for dilation and evacuation therapy, to terminate early pregnancies up to 12 weeks, to treat incomplete spontaneous abortions or to remove some tissues after labor. Other uses also include diagnostic dilation and curettage intended to remove the outermost layer of uterine lining (endometrium) for an endometrial biopsy.
