Uterine artery embolization

  • This is a newer treatment for uterine fibroids.
  • It works by straving the fibroids of its blood supply.
  • It has been shown to decrease the size of fibroids by up to 50% and may save some women from hysterectomy.
  • It is not without its own complications and may be very painful.
  • Its use in women who still want to have children is controversial as long term effects on fertility and pregnancy are unknown.
