Essure is for women who desire permanent birth control. With Essure, the fallopian tubes are bilaterally occluded without incisions or general anesthesia.
Using a hysteroscopic approach, the Essure® inserts are placed in the proximal section of each of the fallopian tubes.
The Essure® insert is a spring-like device that expands and conforms to the varied shapes of the fallopian tube. PET fibers within the device elicit tissue in-growth.
