Both the Essure and Adiana Occlusions are similar and require the same procedure to reverse them. The Essure device has only been available in the last decade, but we are now starting to see a higher number of requests to have this type of tubal occlusion reversed. We have successful pregnancies resulting from Essure and Adiana and we can help you too.
The Essure and Adiana devices are supposed to be permanent and not reversal, similar to traditional tubal ligation, but at the North Carolina Center for Reproductive Medicine (NCCRM), we have the expertise in advanced micro-surgery to perform this procedure.
The procedure to reverse an Essure or Adiana is different than a standard. What is required is called a tubocornual implantation. The old way to do a tubocornual implantation was very hard to do and left the patient requiring a cesarean section for future pregnancies. With the way we perform this procedure at our facility this is no longer the case.
To do this type of reversal, the Essure or Adiana device needs to be first carefully removed. The next step is to make a tiny, perfectly round hole in the wall of the uterus. Once the uterus is prepared, the tube is sewn deep into the lining of the womb. The tube is next sewn to the outside of the uterus to seal it off.
After the repair is completed, we look inside the womb with a tinyto make sure the tube is where it belongs. The final step is the same for all reversals performed at NCCRM – a stent is inserted into the tube to make sure it open.
If you are experiencing negative side effects from your Essure and want to have it removed, not reversed, please read more here.
