 Hologic Birth Control System Receives FDA Nod

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given its approval for the Adiana permanent contraception system manufactured by Hologic Inc.

The company said the system is an alternative to tubal ligation and can be done in a doctor's office without the need for anesthesia. The system provides for permanent birth control by occlusion of the fallopian tubes.


Dr Ted Anderson, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Vanderbilt University, and clinical investigator of the pivotal clinical trial for the Adiana system said it was a simple and safe alternative to invasive procedures.

"Many women seek relief from the uncertainty and hassle of temporary birth control methods once they know their childbearing is complete. However, few know that permanent contraception is available without incisions, the use of general anesthesia, or need for lengthy hospital stays," said Tony Kingsley, senior vice president, GYN surgical products at Hologic.

The Adiana system is already approved and marketed in Europe.
