  • OBJECTIVE: To assess several measures of the long-term outcome of magnetic resonance–guided focused ultrasound surgery for symptomatic uterine leiomyomata. METHODS: Data on 359 women completing 24-month follow-up in all clinical trials of magnetic resonance–guided focused ultrasound surgery for uterine leiomyomata were analyzed. Quality of life outcomes, measured by the symptom severity score of the Uterine Fibroid Symptoms Quality Of Life Questionnaire were assessed for 24 months after… CONTINUE READING
