Embolization Effective For Uterine Fibroid

Women suffering from back pain, pelvic pressure, frequent urination or abnormal periods, uterine fibroids could be to blame. Fibroids are non-cancerous // growths found in the uterus and can range in size from very small to the size of a cantaloupe or larger. Now, there’s an improvement to uterine fibroid embolization -- a treatment that’s becoming the procedure of choice for many women.

Hormone therapy can help shrink fibroids, and a momentum removes them. A hysterectomy is often a last resort. Uterine fibroid embolization has become an alternative for most patients because it’s less painful and less invasive. One of the main advantages is that multiple fibroids at multiple different locations can be treated.

Now, new key players are tiny beads called “microspheres.” Unlike larger materials used to cut off blood flow, the microspheres block smaller vessels by going further into the artery. “And the uterine tissue, the muscle, or lining of the uterus, remains intact and takes up contrast, meaning that there’s still blood flow to those areas,” say Specialists. Total shrinkage of the fibroids can take up to six months.

Between 80 percent and 90 percent of women who have uterine fibroid embolization experience some or total relief of heavy bleeding, pain and other symptoms. Although uterine fibroid embolization leaves the uterus intact, no studies have been done to determine long-term effects on fertility. However, many women have had the procedure and gone on to become pregnnt.
