|By:, SA News Editor

Hologic (HOLX -1.7%) launches its next-generation NovaSure ADVANCED global endometrial ablation system in the U.S. for the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB).

The device is designed to reduce AUB by applying radiofrequency energy to the inner layer of the uterus called the endometrium. It gently ablates the lining in no more than two minutes.

The product was launched in Europe and Australia last year.
