Womed Leaf clinical program
Womed Leaf's clinical evaluation is part of a large ongoing study program. The program aims to bring solid scientific evidence to the ObGyn community and benefit women in their fertility projects. It is designed in phases:
PREG1: European study to validate safety after hysteroscopic myomectomy
PREG2: International study to evaluate efficacy after adhesiolysis
PREG1 clinical study
PREG1 (NCT04381728) is a prospective, multi-center, single arm clinical study that aims to evaluate the safety of Womed Leaf after hysteroscopic myomectomy and its efficacy in preventing intrauterine adhesions at second look hysteroscopy.
Target population: Women with one or more myoma(s), who qualify for hysteroscopic myomectomy
Co primary endpoints:
Safety endpoint: number and type of device-related adverse events (AE) up to 30 days:
Per-operative AEs during device use (cervical trauma, uterine perforation…)
Polymer film tolerance defined as fever, pain or bleeding between 48 hours post procedure and 30 days
Efficacy endpoint: freedom from intrauterine adhesion at second look hysteroscopy between 4 and 8 weeks, and evaluation of severity according to American Fertility Society (AFS) and European Society of Gynecological Endoscopy classifications systems of intrauterine adhesions.
2 hours after the procedure : 2D or 3D ultrasound in order to visualize the polymer position and swelling in the uterine cavity.
30 days post procedure : all subjects are contacted by phone call to assess their clinical status and adverse events.
At 4 to 8 weeks: All subjects will undergo “second look” hysteroscopy.
7 centers in 3 countries are participating.
Results are expected early 2021.
