Latest Uterine artery embolization Stories
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - For the treatment of fibroids, a minimally invasive procedure called uterine artery embolization (UAE) that cuts off blood to the benign tumors reduces hospital stay by nearly 3 days, compared with hysterectomy, but significantly increases the risk of readmission, Dutch researchers report.

How many women have ever heard of the procedure Condoleezza Rice underwent to remove uterine fibroids? Probably not many, although the minor surgical procedure, known as uterine fibroid embolization or uterine artery embolization, has been available in Florida for at least four years as an alternative to the more radical hysterectomy for the removal of the uterine growths.
