Seven-Year Outcomes After Hysteroscopic and Laparoscopic Sterilizations
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Urinary Incontinence, Stress
Patients undergoing hysteroscopic sterilization have a higher risk of receiving an additional tubal resection or ligation than those undergoing laparoscopic sterilization, particularly within the first year of the index procedure. There is no difference in undergoing a subsequent hysterectomy between the two groups. With limited evidence of outcomes after hysteroscopic sterilization beyond 7 years and existing reports of removals years after initial implantations, continuous monitoring of long-term outcomes for women who received the device is warranted.
