AEGEA Vapor System
The AEGEA Vapor System is currently in clinical trials under an Investigational Device Exemption in the United States and currently limited by United States Federal Law to Investigational Use.
The AEGEA Vapor System utilizes natural water vapor to treat menorrhagia, or menstrual periods with abnormally heavy or prolonged bleeding.
How is the AEGEA Vapor System designed to work?
One treatment option for menorrhagia is endometrial ablation. This procedure is designed to ablate, or eliminate, the inner lining of the uterus. The goal of this treatment is to greatly reduce bleeding during a woman’s period. Different kinds of ablation treatments have been available to women with menorrhagia for many years. The AEGEA Vapor System is a new type of endometrial ablation system that uses controlled, low-pressure water vapor to ablate the inner lining of the uterus.
What type of results can patients expect with the AEGEA Vapor System treatment?
In controlled clinical studies, the AEGEA treatment was able to reduce, and in some cases stop, menstrual bleeding. Importantly and in combination patients reported an improvement in their quality of life.1 Our multi-center, international pivotal study is currently underway.
