Uterine artery embolization vs. hysterectomy in the treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids:
10-year outcomes

“After 10 years of follow-up, in 69% of all women undergoing a technical successful UAE, a hysterectomy was avoided. Also, HRQOL and satisfaction rates did not differ between the randomized groups. In view of the short- and long-term available clinical and quality-of-life evidence, we conclude that all women who are candidates for hysterectomy because 10-year outcomes from the randomized EMMY trial of symptomatic uterine fibroids should be counseled on the option of UAE.”

Uterine artery embolization for symptomatic adenomyosis:
7-year clinical follow-up

“We conclude that after 7 years of follow-up, in 82% of patients UAE results in preservation of the uterus. Total of 72% of patients are at least fairly satisfied and 74% seem to respond well to UAE in terms of improvement of HRQOL and SSS.”

Management of uterine adenomyosis: current trends and uterine artery embolization as a potential alternative to hysterectomy

“To date, UAE seems to be the most investigated and highest potential minimally invasive treatment option for adenomyosis.”

Hormone levels before and after uterine artery embolization

“Earlier reported data are consistent with larger sample size. UAE does not affect ovarian reserve in women <40 as evidenced by no significant change in AMH levels after embolization. Women who are of reproductive age and have uterine fibroids can consider UAE without concern for adverse effects on their fertility.”

“Uterine fibroid embolization has become an accepted non-invasive method for treatment of symptomatic leiomyomas in a wide range of patient ages, including reproductive age females.”

Fertility after uterine artery embolization: a review

“UAE is a valid minimally invasive alternative to myomectomy for women desiring fertility, with some caveats. Proper fertility counseling and assessment should be made prior to UAE to ensure that the patients’ fertility goals have the best chance of being achieved.”

Pregnancy after conventional and partial uterine fibroid embolization

“Conventional and partial UFE may be safe and effective out patient procedures for women with uterine fibroids who want to conceive.”

“Uterine artery embolisation is associated with a high clinical success rate and good fibroid volume reduction.”
