Uterine Artery Embolization Procedure

Lasting Results


As of 2003, approximately 2,000-3,000 patients have had uterine artery embolization (UAE) procedures worldwide. Initial results suggest that symptoms will be improved in 90 percent of patients with the large majority of patients markedly improved. Most patients experience significant or total relief of heavy bleeding, pain and other symptoms. Although more research is necessary for long-term outcomes, one study has shown no regrowth after six years.
