Uterine fibroid embolization is a treatment specifically for uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are a common condition, while they are typically non-cancerous, they can cause significant discomfort and impact a person’s quality of life. Fibroids can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and pressure on the bladder or bowel.
One treatment option for uterine fibroids is Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), which is a minimally invasive procedure that cuts off the blood supply to the fibroids. This is done through a small incision over the hip, where a tiny catheter is inserted into the artery that supplies blood to the fibroids. Small particles are then injected into the artery, blocking the blood supply to the fibroids and causing them to shrink.
UFE has several advantages over other treatment options for fibroids, including shorter recovery time, less pain and bleeding, and the ability to preserve fertility. It is a safe and effective procedure, with a success rate of over 90% in reducing fibroid size and improving symptoms.
