Have you been diagnosed with or know of someone who suffers from uterine fibroids and does not know what the best medical option to treat them is?
Medicine has developed a new technique to treat uterine fibroids without needing to remove the uterus. It is called uterine embolization, which consists of delivering a specialized medicine through one of the arteries to block the abnormal blood flow, reducing these non-cancerous tumors called fibroids or myomas.
Benefits that Uterine Fibroids Embolization offers:
Minimally invasive procedure:
The interventional radiologist makes a small incision, and through a catheter supplies the medicine, which blocks the abnormal blood flow to the fibroids and reduces them.
Preservation of the uterus:
The specialist can treat fibroids and reduce them without removing the uterus.
By performing the procedure through the uterine artery, the patient’s recovery time is shorter. Likewise, the risks of bleeding, infections, or other complications are reduced.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia to reduce the risks during the intervention.
Eliminates fibroid symptoms:
By reducing fibroids, symptoms such as anemia, pelvic pain, and heavy menstrual bleeding begin to decrease over time.
