What is Mara?
The Mara Water Vapor Ablation System provides an endometrial ablation treatment that uses natural water vapor to reduce your heavy periods. This two-minute treatment* can be performed conveniently in your doctor’s office without incisions or the need for general anesthesia.
*The water vapor treatment takes 2 minutes, as part of an approximate 4-minute procedure. Total time in office may vary and will include preparation and post-procedure observation.
How does Mara work?
- Mara uses natural water vapor to gently treat the lining of the uterus, which is the source of heavy menstrual bleeding in women who have not reached menopause. When treated, it can no longer regrow to cause heavy monthly bleeding.
- Mara is only for women who no longer want to become pregnant in the future.
- The water vapor treatment takes 2 minutes, as part of a 4-minute total procedure.
- Automated SmartSeal™ safety features ensure uterine cavity sealing and IntegrityPro™ provides cervical temperature monitoring.
The Mara Water Vapor Ablation System is indicated to ablate the endometrial lining of the uterus in premenopausal women with menorrhagia due to benign causes for whom childbearing is complete.
