UK Performs First 15-Minute Female "Vascetomy" - April 9th 2009, 02:24 AM

Article

Quote:
(Newser) – A revolutionary new 15-minute female sterilization procedure has been performed for the first time in the UK, reports the Daily Mail. The procedure uses radio waves instead of incisions and in US trials most patients were able to go home within 30 minutes of receiving local anesthesia. The more invasive tubal ligation requires cuts into the abdomen and recovery can take up to several weeks.
“It is brilliant compared to the normal operation because there is no discomfort or scarring afterwards,” said the patient, who compared it to getting a vasectomy. “I was able to walk in and walk out. A few days later I was able to spend a weekend in France.” Trials have shown the procedure, called the Adiana Permanent Contraception System, to be 98.9% effective.
This sounds very interesting and could be of great use especially since there is no discomfort.

Same story in The Telegraph

I think it's a good idea as long as it works of course

It's best not to cite the Daily Mail Amanda - their headline is "New post mortem on G20 victim as Met faces claims he was attacked TWICE by riot police" and they aren't my capital letters. Their bigger story is "Obese X Factor girl who claimed she couldn't get a job because of her weight turns down offer... live on the radio"

I really need to print something out about the UK news sites. I tend to trust Newser. Those do sound like horrible headlines though.
