We are excited to announce that we have started with a pilot study with Ovalastic in Slovenia and treated six women in the last two days. The first four patients were treated in Maribor University Medical Centre, Maribor (Slovenia) by Drs. Thurkow and Dr. Žegura. The last two patients were treated in Slovenj Gradec General Hospital, Gradec (Slovenia) by Dr. Šavc and Dr. Verdnik Golob. The treatments were all very smooth, partly due to great experience in hysteroscopy of all specialists involved and the fantastic cooperation of the assistants.
The Ovalastic procedure is a non-incisional, non-scarring hysteroscopy procedure for permanent female sterilization with formed-in-place silicone rubber plugs, i.e. occluding the fallopian tubes by mechanical action. In just a few minutes after administration the material solidifies into a soft, flexible and rubbery material that fills up the cavity.
