Interventional Radiology Treatment for Uterine Fibroids: Safe, Nonsurgical Option
Date:8/13/2009

out misdiagnosis, identify which treatments are best suited for each patient and avoid ineffective treatments.

"Nonsurgical uterine fibroid embolization is truly a major advance in women's health," noted Society of Interventional Radiology President Brian F. Stainken, M.D., FSIR, who represents a national organization of nearly 4,500 doctors, scientists and allied health professionals dedicated to improving health care through minimally invasive treatments. "For true informed consent before surgery, patients should be aware of all of their treatment options. Women considering surgical treatment should also get an opinion from a provider knowledgeable about UFE to determine if they are candidates for the interventional radiology treatment," said Stainken, an interventional radiologist who is also president of the Imaging Network of Rhode Island and chair of the diagnostic imaging department at Roger Williams Medical Center in Providence, R.I. "UFE is widely available, and SIR identifies interventional radiologists with expertise in this area in its online physician directory," he added.

Goodwin indicated in the journal article that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists considers UFE a "safe and effective option for appropriately selected women." ACOG noted in one of its practice bulletins that women who want to choose UFE "should have a thorough evaluation with an obstetrician-gynecologist to help facilitate optimal collaboration with the interventional radiologist and to ensure the appropriateness of therapy, taking into account the reproductive wishes of the patient." Goodwin added, "Women can and should be confident about uterine fibroid embolization as a treatment option. Interventional radiologists can provide a second opinion and assess whether UFE is a treatment option."
