The Omnia CME Journal: Global Endometrial Ablation for Menorrhagia - The Office Option
In the United States, an estimated 10 million new cases of menorrhagia are reported annually, resulting in an overall prevalence of approximately 20%, and a substantial personal burden of disease. Global Endometrial Ablation (GEA) represents a minimally invasive approach to treating menorrhagia. Join us in this CME activity, which will: (1) examine the current procedures used for endometrial ablation; (2) compare and contrast methods used for endometrial ablation, including the clinical outcomes; (3) evaluate the suitability of current endometrial ablation treatments as in-office procedures; and (4) examine strategies for pain management with endometrial ablation procedures.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Compare and contrast the risks versus benefits of current procedures used for endometrial ablation
- Differentiate various methods used for endometrial ablation, and their clinical outcomes, to make the most appropriate selection for the patient
- Evaluate current procedures used for endometrial ablation from the perspective of their suitability as in-office procedures
- Discuss pain management strategies in reference to endometrial ablation procedures, and implement those strategies to improve patient outcomes
