"Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) is a reliable method for evacuating the uterus. It is safe, inexpensive and convenient. We use the MVA in our hospital routinely for outpatient procedures. All postgraduate students in obstetrics and gynecology should learn this technique. All practicing gynecologists should adopt this method of uterine evacuation."
Shershah Syed, FRCOG, Pakistani physician and surgeon
"MVA is a safe, reliable and effective method of evacuation of the uterus in early pregnancy, less than 12 weeks. This has been proven by a number of studies in this evidence-based era of medicine. We have replaced conventional D&E, D&C and suction curettage, dilatation & evacuation, dilatation & curettage and electrical suction & curettage with Manual Vacuum Aspiration."
Prof. Ghazala Mahmud, Head of Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Fazia Medical College
“This is the one of the greatest inventions ever in relation to reproductive health care. If you are not using the Ipas MVA, then you are not providing the level of care that your patients deserve. I use this in my office up to 12 weeks gestation for all of my patients. It’s quiet, it’s gentle, it’s easy and it works. We should not provide abortion care today, including the treatment of abnormal early pregnancy, without using this instrument."
Mitchell Creinin, MD, Associate Professor and Director of Family Planning and Family Planning Research, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA
“Transitioning abortion care to the outpatient setting with the Ipas aspirator is a decision that benefits everyone- our patients, hospital administrators, and care providers. It makes an effective and safe method of uterine evacuation easier to provide and less costly. For anyone looking to make abortion care more accessible, affordable, and simple, I encourage you to use the Ipas aspirator to transition care out of the operating theater and into an outpatient setting.”
Dr. Matthew Reeves - Executive Director, Dupont Clinic
“Moving and encouraging uterine aspiration in outpatient sites is a great way to increase access to abortion care, and the Ipas MVA is ideal for doing so safely and with high quality. This is true for both spontaneous and elective abortions. More health care providers and administrators should be transitioning abortion care out of operating theaters and into outpatient settings.”
