PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of uterine artery embolization (UAE) on uterine volume (UV), greater myoma diameter (GMD) and ovarian function three months after the procedure, by transvaginal pelvic ultrasonography (TVPUS) and by the determination of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). METHODS Thirty patients with leiomyomas were submitted to UAE. TVPUS(More)
PURPOSE To analyze histomorphometric consequences of the uterine arteries embolization (UAE) in the uterine tissue, especially by collagen tissue quantification through uterine biopsy, before and after treatment of uterine leiomyoma. METHODS 15 patients with symptomatic leyomioma and/or infertility, submitted to UAE, participated in the study according to(More)
Measurement of colloid osmotic pressure complements measurements of pulmonary artery wedge pressure for assessing the risks of pulmonary edema and constitutes an increasingly important reference for purposes of guiding selection of colloid or crystalloid fluids in patients with acute cardiac disease. We describe a simple device for its routine clinical(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate collagen of endometrial/uterine tissue before and after uterine arterial embolization (UAE). Fifteen consecutive patients with a diagnosis of uterine fibroids were included. Clinical diagnosis of uterine fibroids had been confirmed by ultrasonography. Uterine arterial embolization procedure was performed with(More)
