Uterine artery embolisation and magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound treatment of uterine fibroids



Uterine artery embolisation and magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound treatment of uterine fibroids



Polish Journal of Radiology 76(2): 37-39



Uterine fibroids are the most common benign female tumours during reproductive age. The traditional treatment for this condition is typically hysterectomy. However, there are new technologies on the rise, such as Uterine Artery Embolisation and Magnetic Resonance-guided Focused Ultrasound which are directed towards a minimally invasive or even noninvasive treatment of uterine fibroids. These modern procedures allow for a fast recovery and preservation of fertility. In this work, we presented these alternative procedures and highlighted their advantages and limitations.
