Is Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) a good treatment for uterine fibroids?

Share This Post

Uterine fibroids are the most common benign (non-cancerous) tumors within the female reproductive system. A fibroid starts as a normal muscle cell in the uterus. For unknown reasons, this single cell grows and multiplies into a cluster of cells that form the fibroid. Fibroids are stimulated to grow by estrogen (a hormone produced by the ovaries) and blood flow. During menopause, the fibroid tumor often shrinks as the estrogen level naturally declines.

Uterine fibroid Embolization (UFE) can be described as a non-surgical treatment that treats fibroids. Compared to surgical options, UFE is associated with lower complications, a shorter hospital stay, and a faster recovery.

Long-term data indicate that 90-95 percent of women undergo UFE procedures. UFE procedures are satisfied with the results and substantial or complete symptomatic relief for several years after the procedure.
