Abstract

Uterine artery embolization for symptomatic leiomyomas is a new attractive treatment in patients who do not desire pregnancy and for whom conventional therapy has failed. Uterine fibroid embolization can also be considered for patients who desire pregnancy when myomectomy is technically difficult or/and in case of recurrence after myomectomy. 90% improvements are commonly reported in abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, and in bulk-related symptoms. This technique allows reduction of the hospital stay, the convalescence period, the morbidity and the mortality rate compared to conventional surgical treatment.
