Hologic to Showcase Advancement Simplifying Removal of Large Intrauterine Pathology at AAGL

BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (Nasdaq: HOLX), a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostics, medical imaging systems and surgical products dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of women, today announced that its suite of gynecologic surgical products will be on display at the 41st AAGL Global Congress on Minimally Invasive Gynecology, November 5-9, 2012, in Las Vegas, NV. The American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) is the leading association promoting minimally invasive gynecologic surgery among surgeons worldwide.

This year, Hologic will debut the MyoSure XL fibroid removal device an addition to the MyoSure product line. Both the MyoSure tissue removal system and MyoSure XL fibroid removal device provide incisionless treatment options for relieving abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) symptoms and infertility caused by endometrial polyps and submucosal fibroids. With the MyoSure XL device a physician is able to hysteroscopically remove a 5cm fibroid in less than 15 minutes.

"We are pleased to share real-world and practical insights that deepen the understanding of the safety and efficacy of our MyoSure product family as well as our NovaSure endometrial ablation system at AAGL this year," said Shacey Petrovic, Vice President and General Manager of Hologic's GYN Surgical Products Division. "These products provide options to effectively treat polyps, fibroids and abnormal uterine bleeding without requiring major surgery and underscore our unwavering commitment to advancing women's health." 

Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is bleeding that is not part of a woman's normal menstrual cycle. Today, an estimated 20 percent of all women experience AUB. The majority of women are not aware that AUB is a real medical condition that can range from extremely heavy bleeding to irregular periods (outside the usual 21 to 28-day monthly cycle).  Because women are reluctant to talk about changes in their periods, they often suffer in silence unnecessarily and forego treatment for years. Hologic's MyoSure and NovaSure procedures are minimally invasive and are designed to treat women with abnormal uterine bleeding.

In addition to the MyoSure product line, Hologic will display the full range of products in its gynecologic surgical suite.

  • NovaSure Endometrial Ablation System: Since 2001, more than 1.5 million women have been treated with the NovaSure procedure to reduce or eliminate heavy menstrual bleeding, without hormones or an invasive hysterectomy. Earlier this year, Hologic launched a patient-centered campaign – – using best-selling author Vicki Iovine ("The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy") to connect former patients with future patients to answer questions about heavy periods and NovaSure.
  • Aquilex Fluid Control System: The Aquilex fluid control system was developed to simplify hysteroscopic procedures such as the MyoSure procedure. This high-performance system is designed to minimize the risk of inaccurate deficit readings and maintains constant uterine cavity distention throughout the MyoSure procedure.
  • Tower-free Hysteroscopy System (THS): The THS is designed to meet the diverse diagnostic and treatment needs of the gynecologist's office. This versatile platform is compatible with Hologic's full range of gynecologic solutions, including planning for NovaSure and MyoSure procedures.
