New Study for Women With Uterine Fibroids

InSightec Ltd. is hoping to eventually be able to help women who have struggled with fertility due to uterine fibroids.

They were just cleared to begin a study that will include 650 women who have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility from 20 different areas around the world. Half of the women will be treated for their fibroids using InSightec Ltd.’s new ExAblate system, which consists of MR-guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery. The other half will have their fibroids removed by a traditional surgical procedure.

InSightec Ltd.’s ExAblate system is a departure from current treatment because it is a non-invasive surgery that requires little time for recovery.

During this study, InSightec Ltd. will be comparing the number of healthy births occurring between 3-15 months after having either of the surgeries.

I had never heard of this procedure, but interestingly enough 4000 women around the world have had this new non-invasive surgery to remove their uterine fibroids. The hope of this company is that in the not so distant future, women will have another option in removing fibroids and increasing their fertility!
