The novel AltaSeal® micro-insert was developed to close the fallopian
tubes and prevent pregnancy. AltaSeal® is a 300 series medical grade stainless steel micro-insert (similar to a coronary stent). It is placed in the portion of
the fallopian tubes in the uterus wall by a gynaecologist without the need for
open surgery or general anaesthetic. The procedure can be carried out in the
doctor’s office/ procedure room rather than having to use an operating theatre. The AltaSeal® micro-insert has a series of specially designed
laser cuts that determine its final shape after deployment. Unlike the only other competitor device on the
market, AltaSeal® provides mechanical closure of the fallopian tubes
rather than relying on tissue in-growth around the implant to provide occlusion.
AltaSeal® is clearly visable by both trans-vaginal ultrasound and abdominal ultrasound
