What is a Uterine Fibroid Embolization?
Uterine fibroids are tumors made up of benign smooth muscle tissue that nevertheless impact many women annually. While some fibroids may be small, other fibroids can be large in size, causing significant symptoms that can range from cramping to heavy menstrual periods, and even painful sex and loss of libido. More and more women are opting for an alternative, non-surgical approach called Uterine Fibroid Embolization. Uterine Fibroid Embolization is a low-trauma, minimally invasive procedure. It stops fibroids by restricting their blood supply. Fibroids can only grow when they have plenty of blood to bring them oxygen and nutrients. Starve a fibroid of blood, it begins to shrink and dwindle.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization selectively targets the blood vessels feeding into each fibroid. By blocking blood in a very precise way, Uterine Fibroid Embolization eliminates the things a fibroid needs to exist. Because fibroid embolization is very exact, it only blocks vessels supplying fibroids. Blood supply to the rest of the uterus is unaffected
Uterine Fibroid Embolization is an extremely precise, extremely effective way to provide relief from the problems caused by uterine fibroids.
There are several benefits to this procedure that give patients an advantage over traditional surgical methods:
- This procedure has a precise delivery method, via catheter, and uses particles to block the flow of blood and nutrients to the site of the fibroid.
- Without a blood supply, the fibroid is gradually starved for nutrients and shrinks.
- The procedure involves a smaller incision than typical surgery, meaning that the recovery is generally quicker and has fewer complications.
