Long-term statistics on UAE show it tops myomectomy

Article

Five-year data released at the Society of Interventional Radiology meeting in April show that uterine artery embolization has a 73% success rate for treating uterine fibroids.

Five-year data released at the Society of Interventional Radiology meeting in April show that uterine artery embolization has a 73% success rate for treating uterine fibroids.

Dr. James B. Spies and colleagues at Georgetown University Hospital used data from 182 prospective patients to confirm that UAE is safe and effective and can control fibroid symptoms as long as or longer than myomectomy.

"These five-year outcomes show embolization is comparable to myomectomy but less invasive, and women recover from it more quickly," Spies said.
