Uterine artery embolization can be performed in young women who still wish to become pregnant, according to a study in Fertility and Sterility.

A prospective study conducted at the Hospital de Madrid in Spain examined the impact of uterine artery embolization on 100 patients, 57 of whom wished to remain fertile (2008;90[6]: 2356-2360).

Eleven pregnancies, eight of which were live births, occurred in 10 women. Three cases ended in early miscarriages. None of the eight newborns had low birth-weight and there were no cases of abnormal placental implantation, according to the researchers. The investigators embolized uterine arteries using 500 to 1200 µm trisacryl gelatin microspheres.
