Uterine fibroid embolization is a minimally invasive procedure that blocks the blood supply to fibroids, causing them to shrink and die, letting women forget about myomas and its syntoms.
On the other hand, more aggressive procedures, such as myomectomy (surgery to remove fibroids) or hysterectomy (removal of the uterus itself), are avoided. The healthy part of the uterus will continue to receive blood through other arteries.
Uterine fibroid embolization is a minimally invasive and efficient procedure for women with myomas that want to keep their uterus.
The most common symptoms include:
Abnormal menstrual cycle (heavy or frequently occurring)
Pelvic pain and inflammation
Anemia, fatigue and weakness
Itâs a minimally invasive and efficient procedure.
Same day procedure, typically no overnight stay needed.
