Clinically proven
safe and effective.

When you discuss the Mara Water Vapor Ablation
System with your patients, you can recommend it
with confidence. An international, multi-center
pivotal clinical study that enrolled 155 women,
demonstrated that Mara significantly reduces
heavy menstrual bleeding and improves quality of
life. 79% of patients met the primary endpoint of the
study with a PBLAC score of ≤ 75 at 1 year.3
There were no serious device or procedure-related
adverse events.

Improvement reported 1 year after treatment for those women who experienced menstrual cramping.

Treats More Uterine Anatomies

Mara has been demonstrated in the pivotal clinical study to successfully treat women traditionally
not indicated for endometrial ablation3:

  • Long cavities up to 12 cm
  • Any uterine width (no measurement needed)
  • Cavities with submucosal (type 2), intramural (types 3 and 4)
    and/or subserosal (types 5 and 6) myomas up to 4 cm
  • History of low-transverse c-section
  • In the presence of Essure®

Important Safety Information:

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. Pregnancy following the Mara procedure can be dangerous. The Mara procedure is not for those who have or suspect uterine cancer; have an active genital, urinary or pelvic infection; or an IUD. As with all surgical procedures, there are risks and considerations associated with the use of the Mara Water Vapor Ablation System.
