Study boosts UAE (uterine artery embolisation) for treating fibroids:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Data from what is claimed to be the largest prospective study of its kind to assess uterine artery embolisation (UAE) has added to the growing body of evidence supporting the procedure as a treatment for uterine fibroids. UK researchers, from The Royal Surrey County Hospital, Surrey, found that the technique improved menstrual bleeding in 84% of 400 women and menstrual pain in 79%. The findings appear in The British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (November). However, a separate study, published in another journal, Obstetrics & Gynaecology (November), found that women who undergo UAE put themselves at greater risk of complications should they later become pregnant (see Clinica No 1032, p 25).
