Review proposal - September 2010

Review of NICE Technology Appraisal Guidance No 78: menstrual bleeding - fluid filled thermal balloon and microwave endometrial ablation

Proposal to defer the review

The planned date for review of the above guidance was January 2010.

This is the date at which the Institute decides whether sufficient new evidence has emerged for the Appraisal Committee to be asked to undertake a full review appraisal.

The Institute has carried out a search for information relevant to this appraisal, and has found that to the best of its knowledge, no new evidence has been published that would have a material effect on the original guidance. However, we are aware of two National Institute for Health Research technology assessments of treatments for heavy menstrual bleeding, the first of which is due to report in 2011. Consequently we propose that the review of the original guidance be deferred until 2011.

In order to be completely confident that this is appropriate, we are asking all relevant consultees and commentators, to inform us of any evidence which would suggest that a review would be beneficial. Please see appendix A for a full list of the organisations we have contacted.
