Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 46-year-old woman had an unusual complication from uterine myoma embolization by development of extensive necrosis with subsequent uterine perforation at the location of a previous myomectomy. We suggest that a scarred uterus may be a risk factor for uterine fibroid embolization complications, such as uterine necrosis.
