Manual Vacuum Aspiration - 7 February 2019, London


  • Specialist Gynaecology

This one day, hands-on and theoretical training course focuses on the outpatient management of miscarriage and abortion using manual vacuum aspiration. 

Manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) is an alternative to electric suction of dilation and curettage for evacuation of the uterine contents. The MVA procedure is performed with a hand-operated vacuum syringe, typically under local anaesthetic, in a treatment room. 

With the high safety profile of this procedure and the increasing potential for the delivery of uterine evacuation outside of theatre, there is a need to improve access to MVA in the UK. In addition to providing grounding in the MVA procedure, this course covers the equipment, staffing, analgesia and other requirements for surgical uterine evacuation in the outpatient setting.
