Cryoablation is an important option for endometrial ablation
“ Endometrial ablation devices: How to make them truly safe,” by Michael S. Baggish, MD (September)
I was delighted to see an article discussing the little-known but serious complications that can be associated with global endometrial ablation technologies. However, I was disturbed to find that only four of the five currently available methods were discussed. Because cryoablation typically produces minimal pain symptoms, it is an important option in an ambulatory gynecologic office setting. Does this mean that there are no complications associated with the cryoablation method? I sincerely doubt it.
