Uterine Fibroid Embolization and Overview of Complications

Walid M. Asaad


Abstract: Leiomyomas (or fibroids) are exceedingly common lesions. The indications to initiate treatment are based on the symptoms that can arise from their presence. In general, medical therapy should be considered the first line of treatment. Currently, uterine artery embolization (UAE) has been shown to be a safe, efficacious, and a cost-effective alternative to traditional surgical options, with data from long-term studies now available. Appropriate patient evaluation and selection are vital. Here we report a case of symptomatic uterine fibroids which failed medical therapy and showed dramatic improvement after uterine artery embolization and was discharged on appropriate treatment. Additionally, a review of the current literature is discussed.
