What is Uterine Fibroid Embolisation?

Uterine Fibroid Embolisation is a minimally invasive treatment for fibroid tumors of the uterus. Embolisation means injecting small particles into the blood supply to stop the flow of blood to the fibroids.

Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are the most common non-cancerous growths that develop in the muscular wall of the uterus. Fibroids can measure from a quarter of an inch to the size of a musk melon. Now that’s shocking, isn’t it? Fibroids can increase in size during pregnancy.

Symptoms…

Generally, fibroids are not a sign of caution. Only 10 to 20 percent of women experience pain and should get treated. The fibroids may cause the following symptoms:

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Swelling of the abdomen

Procedure

Firstly, your radiologist will use of a fluoroscope to perform this procedure. A fluoroscope produces moving images of internal organs and displays on a computer monitor. You will receive anesthesia to reduce pain. Then, your doctor will make a small incision in the skin over your femoral artery which is a large blood vessel that passes lengthwise through your groin. Then, then your doctor will insert catheter inside the either the left or the right artery which is feeding the fibroid.

Thereafter, a special X-Ray dye is inserted into the uterine artery and its branches and makes it visible on the fluoroscope’s monitor to light up the fibroids. Through this, the radiologist identifies the right area of uterine artery and injects the blood vessel with tiny particles made of plastic or gelatin. These particles obstruct the blood flow to the fibroids causing the fibroids to shrink in size. After this procedure is completed on one artery, it will be performed on another artery and the entire procedure takes 1 to ½ hours.
