Uterine artery embolization is minimally invasive, highly effective, well tolerated by most patients. Advantage of this method was uterine sparing, short recovery period, no need for blood transfusion, less anaesthetic complication, etc. Hence Uterine fibroid embolization was an alternate primary treatment to hysterectomy for the management of symptomatic fibroid uterus. Estimates suggest that more that more than 100000 UFE procedures have been performed worldwide.
Aim: A prospective interventional study of patients with symptomatic uterine leiomyoma in our hospital subjected to uterine artery embolization. This study is to analyse below parameters of uterine symptomatic leiomyoma
4. Outcome of this technique
Materials and Methods: In this study 30 patients having uterine myoma with at least one of the following symptoms are selected:
1. Heavy menstrual bleeding
2. Lower abdominal pain during menstruation (dysmenorrhoea)
3. Urinary symptoms like increased frequency, difficult to micturition.
5. Lower abdominal heaviness
Study Method: It was a prospective interventional study.
Place of Study: Government RSRM Lying in Hospital, Chennai.
Collaborating Unit: Department of Interventional Radiology.
Results and Conclusion: From this study we have concluded that uterine fibroid embolization found to be an effective, safe and alternate primary treatment to hysterectomy to reduction of symptoms in uterine myoma. On short term follow up, less failure rates observed in this study.
