Fibroids Embolisation Treatment Procedure
Firstly, your radiologist will use a fluoroscope to see your uterus and blood vessels. 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 your doctor will insert catheter inside 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. This makes it visible on the fluoroscope’s monitor which lights 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 thefibroids 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 1½ hours.
