Adiana sterilization is considered permanent but Adiana can be reversed.
Successful pregnancy is possible after surgical reversal of Adiana tubal blockage.
Adiana sterilization is similar to Essure sterilization. Both methods use devices to cause permanent blockage inside the very beginning of the fallopian tube.
Both methods can be reversed by Dr. Monteith of A Personal Choice with a tubouterine implantation procedure and the chance of pregnancy is approximately 40%.
Adiana And Essure: They Both Do The Same Thing
Essure was approved by the FDA in 2002. The Essure fallopian tube device is a 2 inch nickel/stainless steel coil. Each device is inserted into the opening of each fallopian tube. The Essure device causes scar tissue formation inside the beginning of the tube. This causes permanent blockage.
Adiana was approved for use in the United States in 2009. The Adiana device is a small silicone insert. It is the same size as a grain of rice.
The Adiana device is inserted into the opening of fallopian tube. The Adiana causes tubal blockage just like Essure and is intended to be permanent.
The Adiana device was removed from the health care market in 2012 after the makers of Essure complained the Adiana device violated the preexisting patents on Essure.
Adiana was only in use for 3 years. Adiana has not been used on as many women.
Adiana can be reversed surgically. Natural pregnancy after reversal is possible.
Can Adiana Be Reversed?
Dr. Monteith is a world renowned tubal reversal surgeon. He was the first surgeon to report successful surgical reversal of Adiana sterilization.
Dr. Monteith’s first Adiana reversal patient lost her teenage son to a drowning accident. Unfortunately she was one of the first Adiana trial patients. Her tubes were blocked from the Adiana devices. She wanted to become pregnant again.
She declined in-vitro fertilization (IVF). She consulted with Drs. Monteith and Berger (retired) because of their extensive tubal reversal surgery experience.
She chose to have outpatient Adiana reversal. The procedure was successful and she soon had a healthy baby girl.

Is Pregnancy Possible After Adiana Reversal?
Pregnancy is possible after Adiana reversal. Dr. Monteith uses the same procedure to reverse Adiana as he does to reverse Essure.
The Adiana reversal procedure is outpatient surgery and is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery takes about 80 minutes to complete.
During the surgery, Dr. Monteith removes the blocked section of fallopian tube and reinserts the remaining healthy tube through the uterine muscle and into the cavity of the uterus. This is called tubouterine implantation.
