The MyoSure LITE device can remove small polyps up to 3 cm, and you can also trust that the quantity and quality of the tissue collection will allow for histologic assessment. With the 6.25 mm diameter of the MyoSure hysteroscope, minimal dilation is required during a MyoSure LITE procedure.
With the MyoSure LITE device you can:
- Visualize the uterine cavity with the MyoSure hysteroscope.
- Identify and remove suspect pathology for histological assessment.
- Resect smaller and softer tissue.
- Complete the procedure efficiently—without removing the hysteroscope.
With high-risk patients, it becomes more important to get a complete and quality tissue collection. In fact, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommended that:
“If a surgical approach is favored, D&C with hysteroscopic guidance is recommended over D&C alone because it has higher accuracy and superior diagnostic yield.”1†
†ACOG recommends hysteroscopic guidance in general for endometrial sampling; they do not recommend a specific brand.
A recent pilot study published in the International Journal of Women's Health, found that in extirpated uteri endometrial tissue sampling using the minimally invasive MyoSure LITE device may provide larger volumes of higher-quality endometrial tissue specimens for pathology assessment compared to specimens obtained using conventional curettage.2
“The most impressive part of the study was that the sheer volume of tissue that we got from the MyoSure LITE was so much more than we got from the D&C, so it was more helpful to the pathologist for determining if there were any abnormalities.”2

The MyoSure LITE device lets you visualize the entire uterine cavity to get a quality tissue specimen.
