How Do You Treat Your Challenging Fibroid Patients?

Consider Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)

At Fibroid Institute Texas, we understand that for many women with uterine fibroids a hysterectomy or myomectomy is the recommended treatment. Obstetricians and gynecologists, family physicians and health care practitioners who manage women’s health issues often advise for these surgeries. More than 600,000 hysterectomies and 30,000 myomectomies are performed in the U.S. annually. However, we also know that hysterectomy or myomectomy is not the right fit for all women in every case.

How do you best care for your challenging fibroid cases? Or women who have symptomatic fibroids but are not a good surgical candidate?

Meet the following criteria:

  • Are suffering from symptomatic fibroids
  • Are not a viable surgical candidate
  • Have had multiple previous surgeries
  • Have scarring from endometriosis
  • Represent a technically-challenging case (example: refuse blood products, have too many fibroids to resect, difficult surgical approach due to fibroid location, etc.)
  • Need reduced time away from work/family, must avoid a longer recovery
  • Want to keep their uterus and avoid surgery
  • Want to stop fibroid pain, bleeding and other symptoms
  • Are not seeking fertility
  • Keep coming back with symptoms

We understand your patients’ medical, surgical, and reproductive histories—as well as personal wishes—all play a role in determining the best fibroid treatment. If you don’t currently have an alternative for these patients, please consider recommending Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE).

How We Treat Your Fibroid Patients with UFE

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a highly effective non-surgical treatment option for women with symptomatic uterine fibroids who are not candidates for a hysterectomy or myomectomy. UFE allows a woman to keep her uterus. During the procedure a small catheter is inserted into the radial artery and then advanced to the uterine arteries. Next, small particles are injected to block blood flow to the fibroid tumors, causing them to shrink and die.

Benefits of UFE for Patients

Alternative to surgery; No scarring

No hospital stay; No intubation

Shorter recovery period, 7 days in most cases

Fibroid symptoms improve dramatically

Avoids side effects of hormone therapies

Pregnancy possible, with caveat of UFE miscarriage rates
