Two cases of leiomyoma necrosis after thermal balloon endometrial ablation

Robson, Stephen

Description

The presence of intramural leiomyomas is not necessarily a contraindication to thermal balloon endometrial ablation, provided there is minimal distortion of the endometrial cavity. We report 2 cases of necrosis of intramural leiomyomas after the procedure. These cases illustrate a potential complication of thermal balloon endometrial ablation that has been reported only once previously in the medical literature.
