Endometrial ablation designed to significantly reduce heavy menstrual bleeding while preserving uterine cavity access1 Mara utilizes the expansive properties of water vapor to conform to each woman’s unique uterus, allowing you to treat more women1
- 93% of women report normal or no bleeding1
- 90% had an accessible cavity 4 years after treatment with minimal to no scarring1. This allows you to revisualize the endometrium and perform post-ablation diagnoses and uterine treatments as needed, even years later2
- 1 out of every 3 patients effectively treated in the Mara Pivotal Trial may not have been candidates with other ablation options1,*
- 99% of women experienced a significant improvement in quality of life3,†
* Patients with a broad range of anatomical conditions: Uterine cavity
lengths > 10 cm (up to 12 cm), cavities with certain types of myomas up to 4 cm, and in the presence of Essure®
† Based on patient reported Menorrhagia Impact Questionnaire (MIQ) scores
