To all the women complaining of excessively painful uterine fibroids, we have good news for you! You can now get rid of these discomforting uterine tumours without actually having to undergo a surgery!
Yes, you heard it right. UFE i.e. Uterine Fibroid Embolization is a non-surgical, painless, and scar-less treatment procedure for uterine fibroids. It is the most advanced treatment procedure that has the highest success rate and negligible chances of any side-effects.
Stay with us till the end of this blog to learn more about the UFE treatment process and how you can get your uterine fibroids removed without the need for hospitalization.
What are Uterine Fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous (benign) tumours of the uterus or womb. A fairly common disorder, it is reported that about 1 in every 3 women between 30 to 50 years of age complain of uterine tumours.
These fibroids are either asymptomatic or cause irregular periods, heavy menstrual flow, excessively painful menses, enlarged belly, and heaviness in the pelvis. A few women also develop anaemia and complain of pain during sexual intercourse due to development of uterine fibroids.
Surgical treatments of uterine fibroids include myomectomy (removal of fibroids) and hysterectomy(removal of the uterus). These are extremely painful procedures and take a long time to heal.
UFE was introduced as a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment to overcome the disadvantages of surgical procedures. This process preserves the uterus while shrinking the fibroids and this exactly what makes it the most preferred treatment for uterine fibroids.
Uterine fibroid embolization is performed by an interventional radiologist. In this process, the doctor makes a tiny cut on the skin surface to insert a catheter and a camera. The camera is used to direct the catheter to the affected area.
With the help of the catheter, small particles of the embolic material are injected into the blood vessels feeding the uterine fibroids. These particles cut off the blood supply to these tumours and as a result of this, the uterine fibroids shrink and die off in some time.
What are the benefits of UFE?
Uterine fibroid embolization is a highly advantageous treatment process that is also often recommended after failed myomectomy, recurrence of fibroids after myomectomy, and Adenomyosis of the uterus.
It is performed under local anaesthesia as there is no need for general anaesthesia. Except in a few critical cases, you do not require hospitalization as UFE is performed in the form of a day-care procedure.
Most patients experience faster healing and rapid recovery. They are able to resume their everyday activities in 2 to 6 days after UFE as opposed to 1-2 months with a hysterectomy and 3-4 weeks in myomectomy.
This process does not harm to the uterus or other neighbouring organs. There is no risk of adhesion formation or blood loss. The biggest benefit is that this process can be used to treat all different types of uterine fibroids. Women are able to conceive and deliver a healthy baby after UFE treatment of uterine fibroids.
