The purpose of this poster consisted of explaining the interventional radiologist point of view on uterine fibroids embolization.
Uterine fibroids cause heavy prolonged bleeding,
pressure symptoms and subfertility.
The traditional method of treatment has been surgery as medical therapies have not proven effective. Uterine artery embolization has been reported to be an effective and safe alternative to treat fibroids in women not desiring future fertility.
Endovascular embolization could be an alternative treatment to hysterectomy and myomectomy.
Thanks to an accurate selection of Patients and through clinical and instrumental controls,
endovascular embolization has a good clinical efficacy of short,
medium and long-term processes.
Low incidence of complications and low treatment failure.
