PURPOSE To evaluate magnetic resonance (MR) imaging-guided focused ultrasound (US) as a treatment for pedunculated subserosal fibroids. MATERIALS AND METHODS Over a 2-year period (March 2007 to March 2009), 135 women with symptomatic uterine fibroids were treated in the authors' institution using MR imaging-guided focused US. Of these women, nine (mean age, 39 years; range, 25-47 y) had a single pedunculated subserosal fibroid. During treatment, these pedunculated fibroids were targeted… CONTINUE READING
