Uterine fibroids are benign tumours, found in the smooth muscle of the uterus. These tumours are in most cases asymptomatic, but can in extreme cases lead to a number of symptoms including painful periods, abdominal discomfort, and even fertility problems 🌸 Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (UFE) is a minimally invasive treatment that provides significant or total relief. The procedure is conducted in 3 easy steps👇
1️⃣ A thin tube (catheter) is placed in the radial artery of the wrist which is advanced into the blood vessels that supply the uterus.
2️⃣Tiny particles are then infused into the blood vessels supplying the fibroids
3️⃣The fibroids, now starved of their nutrient supply, will shrink. Periods improve immediately. The procedure is tailored to the individual patient.
