Materials & Methods: In this prospective IRB-approved trial, symptomatic patients with uterine fibroids were treated with UAE by using Bead Block™ (Terumo Interventional Systems, Somerset, NJ) as the embolic agent. We assessed degree of tumor infarction 3 months after treatment with contrast material-enhanced MR imaging. For each patient, we categorized fibroid infarction into 1 of 3 Groups: A) < 25% infarction; B) 25-89%; and C) 90% or greater. We defined imaging failure as fibroid infarction… CONTINUE READING
