Building Interventional Gynecology

Once a sluggish category for clinical innovation, gynecology is drawing new venture-backed companies eager to build upon the lead created by first-generation companies operating in minimally-invasive endometrial ablation and female sterilization.

Impres Medical Inc. aims to offer women an office-based non-surgical solution for menorrhagia. The start-up has developed an implantable device that replicates Asherman's syndrome, a disorder that forces a buildup of fibrous tissue in the uterus that replaces the endometrium and eventually deactivates the menstrual cycle.
