After the Uterine Fibroid Embolization Exam Performed by Hill Medical

What happens to me after the Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) procedure?

The UFE procedure takes about one hour to complete and most patients go home that day. Most women feel abdominal pain or cramping, similar to menstrual period cramping, shortly after the procedure. Medication will be given to keep you comfortable after the procedure.

Are women satisfied with the results of UFE?

In clinical studies conducted at eleven medical centers in the U.S., 132 women who had problems with uterine fibroids were treated with UFE. After twelve months, the majority of women in the study had significant reduction in menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and frequency of urination. Ninety-six percent of women treated by UFE reported being satisfied with the results of their UFE at twelve months.

What are the risks associated with UFE?

Overall, UFE is a safe procedure for treating symptomatic fibroids. Infrequent complications have been reported following UFE. You should talk with our radiologists about the risks associated with this procedure.
