The linear metallic densities in the pelvis are ESSURE sterilisation devices in the fallopian tubes.
ESSURE is one of the less commonly undertaken forms of sterilisation.
The ESSURE device is inserted into the fallopian tubes by a catheter via the transcervical route. It is composed of inner polyethylene terephthalate fibres to induce a benign fibrotic reaction and is held in place by flexible stainless steel inner coil and a dynamic outer nickel titanium alloy coil.
