To evaluate the safety and efficacy of US-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) ablation for the treatment of submucosal fibroids A total of 76 women with 78 submucosal uterine fibroids (68 type II fibroids, 10 type I fibroids) underwent US-guided HIFU ablation. The pretreatment fibroid diameter ranged from 2.4 to 13.5 cm (mean 5.7 ± 2.3 cm). The fibroids were ablated using a power output of 420–520 W. During follow-up, the volume shrinkage of the ablated fibroids was continuously… CONTINUE READING
