Essure® - permanent female birth control
Essure® is an innovative and leading technology in the area of female sterilisation for regulating fertility throughout the world. It is designed to provide a nonincisional alternative for women seeking sterilisation.
Essure utilises a hysterscopic approach and one Essure micro-insert is placed in the proximal section of each fallopian tube lumen. The micro-insert expands upon release, acutely anchoring itself in the fallopian tube. This subsequently elicits a benign tissue response. Tissue in-growth into the micro-insert permanently anchors the device and occludes the fallopian tube.
