Uterine Fibroids are very common among women. Almost 90 percent of the women in this world have fibroids in their uterus and they develop once you attain puberty. These fibroids are not dangerous and hardly women come to know about their presence unless there is extreme pelvic pain or blood discharge during the menstrual cycle.
Uterine Fibroids surgery is not recommendable as they do not cause any harm generally. But in case if it grows larger and creates complications, surgery might be required. The procedure for fibroids surgery is known as Myomectomy and Hysterectomy.
However in these procedures, though fibroids get removed, in Myomectomy it weakens the uterine muscle walls while in Hysterectomy it completely removes the uterus. So to overcome these difficulties, an advanced procedure is introduced having lesser risks known as “Acessa”.
What is Acessa?
Acessa is a laproscopic approach to treat the uterine fibroids instead of cutting openly through the uterus muscles or removing it. It uses radiofrequency energy to soften the fibroids and reduce its size so that it gets dissolved in the muscle walls over time. It is that advanced method of treating uterus fibroids without harming a single bit of uterus functionalities and muscle walls.
How Acessa is effective compared to Traditional Fibroid Surgery
Acessa procedure is highly recommendable for all women having fibroid complications over traditional surgery due to the following reasons:-
- a) Generally, in Myomectomy, it is difficult to remove the extreme smaller fibroids due to surgery complications and maximum 2 to 4 fibroids can be removed on average.
Acessa, on the other hand, detects extreme small to huge fibroids due to laproscopic ultrasound treatment and softens hem immediately so that they get dissolves in the muscle tissue. On an average Acessa can remove a maximum of 15 to 20 fibroids.
- b) Myomectomy makes the uterus muscles weak through surgery and it involves a complicated procedure to restore back the uterus in shape and function once again. Also after Myomectomy if women have pregnancy only C-section is preferred. Hysterectomy on the other hand completely removes the uterus which can be heartbreaking for aspiring mothers.
Acessa, in this case, leaves the uterus and its muscles untouched and intact operating only on the fibroids. Patients get quickly recovered from Acessa surgery within a week and can go for both normal and C-section delivery.
- c) Fibroids operated through Myomectomy have the chances of developing again in future but in Acessa the fibroids have very fewer chances of growing again.
Acessa has proved to be highly beneficial for those women who don’t want to lose their opportunity for becoming a mother and also for the ones who are not ready to take high risks for the fibroid surgery.
