The Acessa Procedure

The Acessa System is utilized in a minimally invasive procedure done on an outpatient basis. Using standard laparoscopic skills, the gynecological surgeon places two ports, one 5 mm and one 10 mm, along with a percutaneous insertion of the Acessa Handpiece; to execute the procedure. The procedure takes approximately 1 – 2 hours when done by an experienced surgeon.

Destroys All Of The Fibroids

Using an intraoperative ultrasound, the surgeon is able to clearly identify all of the patient’s fibroids and destroy them, no matter what the location. The Handpiece is advanced to each of targeted fibroids and inserted 1 cm into the fibroid. The electrode array is then deployed and the surgeon is able to destroy the fibroid.

Handpiece Allows Control of All Generator Functions

Once the Handpiece is inserted into the fibroid the surgeon, the surgeon can use controls on the Handpiece to enter information about the procedure and control the parameters of the treatment. Pressing a footpedal switch starts the procedure. When the ablation is completed, the surgeon uses the Handpiece controls to switch to coagulation mode and withdraws the Handpiece from the fibroid.

With the Acessa System, the procedure is done on an outpatient basis, so the patient is able to return home the same day, and they are usually back to work within only a few days. With the Acessa System, the surgeon is able to find and destroy all of the patient’s fibroids, thus reducing the risk of recurrence of symptoms, while preserving the patient’s uterus.
