Uterine Artery Embolization Surgery

Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive treatment for fibroid tumors of the uterus. The procedure is also sometimes referred to as Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE), but this term is less specific and, as will be discussed below, UAE is used for conditions other than fibroids.

Fibroid tumors, also known as myomas, are benign tumors that arise from the muscular wall of the uterus.  It is extremely rare for them to turn cancerous. More commonly, they cause heavy menstrual bleeding, pain in the pelvic region, and pressure on the bladder or bowel.

Uterine fibroid embolization (also known as uterine artery embolization) represents a fundamentally new approach to the treatment of fibroids. Embolization is a minimally invasive means of blocking the arteries that supply blood to the fibroids. It is a procedure that uses angiographic techniques (similar to those used in heart catheterization) to place a catheter into the uterine arteries....

Embolization has existed as a medical procedure since 1975. In gynecology it was used to reduce bleeding during uterine surgery. Founding members of the Fibroid Treatment Collective noticed another important effect...

    Successful pregnancy after uterine artery embolization ?
    I a 29 year wanting to conceive a child in a few years. I have a large fibroid in my uterus that will have be removed before conceiving and carrying full term is possible. I DONT want to have any type of surgery for fibroid removal. Another opt. is uterine artery embolization. Not enough research yet to determine if this would cause infertility. Does anyone know of possible pregnancy results after this procedure?

    • ღ†Rocker Wife†ღ says:

      I don’t think anyone (anyone HERE especially) can tell you what your chances will be of maintaining your fertility after having this procedure. While uterine artery embolization is an effective treatment for uterine fibroids, the effects that it has on the ability to become pregnant, on the development of the fetus, and the ability to carry the fetus to term have not been determined. There are some reports of women becoming pregnant after the uterine artery embolization process and having successful pregnancies. However, there is no conclusive data or scientific results that establish the safety of uterine fibroid embolization on fertility and pregnancy. You already know this.

      MY advice to you would be to have a second opinion about this BEFORE the procedure. Another doctor may not agree with 1) the fibroid needing to be removed/treated before starting your family and 2) A UAE being the best course of treatment for you. Please get another opinion (or two) before deciding to do something that *may* permanently affect your ability to have children.

      Good luck.

    Has anyone had a uterine artery embolization procedure to treat fibroid tumors, if so, any negative results?

    • sokokl says:

      I have met a few women that have had this procedure and had very good results.

      I have the link to a site that has a Women’s Health messageboard where you can get even more information and experiences. If interested in checking it out please e-mail or IM me off site any time. Please put in the subject line information on uterine fibroid embolization so that I know what it’s in regards to.

    Had a uterine artery embolization done in 2005, just miscarried could that be the reason why I miscarried?
    Can I ever have children after that procedure

    • Chele says:

      I truly hope your doctor thoroughly discussed the complications that can come with this surgery, particularly since fibroids can affect future fertility. (A few of my relatives have had fibroid surgery. I’m a PCOS patient and don’t have fibroids, but I’ve done TONS of reading on fertility issues). You don’t say how far along you were – if you were only a couple weeks the zygote may have tried to implant itself at the surgical site.

      The following passage is quoted from Wikipedia: “Fibroids, particularly when small, may be entirely asymptomatic. Generally, symptoms relate to the location of the lesion and its size. Important symptoms include abnormal gynecologic hemorrhage, pain, urinary frequency or retention, and in some cases, infertility. During pregnancy they may be the cause of miscarriage, bleeding, premature labor, or interference with the position of the fetus.”

      I would most definitely talk with your doctor about future fertility, especially because you’ve voiced your concern about ever having children. I’m so sorry for your loss – I know how hard this gets. Best wishes and hopes for nothing but good news for you…

    Would having an embolization (Uterine artery, I guess) work on/help with Endometriosis-related pain?
    I have chronic severe pain from Endometriosis and have had 3 Laparoscopic procedures, taken the Lupron shot and exhausted pretty much all of the other pain management options. The only option left is having a hysterectomy, which I don’t want to have unless absolutely necessary. I’ve been researching it a little and wanted to know if having an embolization might help with the Endo pain since it cuts off some of the blood flow that causes Endo.

    Thanks for any helpful info.

    • Q says:

      No. Embolization is designed to starve out specific fibroids, which are things inside and/or attached to the uterus. But the endo pain comes from endometrial tissue that is located throughout the abdominal cavity, and embolization does not affect that at all. And while the uterus is there, it will keep making more endometrial tissue which will get into your abdominal cavity and make new places hurt and make the endometriosis worse. But even so, ask your doc and see what he says.

    Myomectomy or Uterine Artery Embolization Procedure?
    Can someone help me out? I have a myomectomy set up for Aug. 14th. I went to my pre-op appt. today and my doctor brought up the possibility of the embolization procedure instead. He had actually told me 2 1/2 months ago that it would not be a good idea to do that procedure because I would be able to have another child. Now he said in the last couple of months they have released new research that says it is possible to have a healthy pregnancy after that procedure. I have just a couple of days to decide on the myomectomy or embolization. The fibroid is about 5.5 cm and it is on the back of my uterus, plus I have two cysts on one of my ovaries and a possiblility of endometrioses. Does anyone have any advice to which route would be the best to conceive or of any other procedures that they have heard about? My gut feeling is to go through with the abdominal myomectomy, but I just wanted to see if anyone knew of something else. I am scared of such a new study about pregnancy after.

    • mokkah69 says:

      Wow, how interesting! I just had an abdominal myomectomy 1 week ago. I was hesitant at first because I do not have any children but I would like to have some one day. My doctor recommended the abdominal approach because of the difficult location of my fibroids. This may be the same case for you especially seeing that you have a possible cyst on your ovary. Good luck and be brave! I am still recovering but I am glad that I did it!
