Femilis LNG-IUS (Development)
Femilis consists of a 3 cm long and a 2.4 mm wide drug delivery compartment. The vertical drug delivery rod contains 60 mg of levonorgestrel (LNG), and is covered by a rate-controlling membrane. The drug delivery compartment releases approximately 20 μg of LNG in vitro daily. The transverse retention arm has a length of either 28 mm or 24 mm to accommodate different widths of uterine cavities. Femilis® LNG-IUS is inserted using the simple and safe push-in technique, requiring minimal training. The insertion of Femilis® is apparently simpler than that required for other conventional T-shaped devices, since its arms are folded downward during the insertion process. Over 10 years of experience has been accumulated with the T-shaped LNG-IUS.
In his clinic in Ghent, Dr. Wildemeersch organizes training sessions for doctors from inside and outside Belgium, interested in learning the anchoring technique of frameless intrauterine devices.
The clinic is specialized in providing precision intrauterine contraception to fulfill women's needs.
