Answer

NovaSure system is a detailed microprocessor-based unit with a bipolar gold mesh electrode array. It contains a system for determining uterine integrity based upon the injection of CO2. The device is placed transcervically, the array is opened and electrical energy is applied for 80-90 seconds, desiccating the endometrium.
