Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Since the first report in 1995, there has been rapid expansion of uterine artery embolization as a therapy for symptomatic uterine fibroids. The published literature and clinical experience show that this procedure is safe and effective. This article discusses the history of the procedure, current issues in procedure technique, and the state of the literature regarding outcomes of embolization. Current and future research topics also are discussed.
