Further study details as provided by Assaf-Harofeh Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • safety of intrauterine application of Intercoat [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    women treated by Intercoat following their hysteroscopic procedure were followed for immediate and late adverse effects; fever, increased intrauterine adhesion formation upon follow up and changes in menstrual pattern

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • efficacy of intrauterine application of Intercoat gel in reducing adhesion formation following hysteroscopic treatment for retained products of conception [ Time Frame: 14 months ]
    intrauterine adhesions were graded according to the AFS score upon hysteroscopic follow up 6-8 weeks following initial treatment

Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: September 2009
Study Completion Date: February 2011
Primary Completion Date: November 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
