OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the safety and effectiveness of uterine artery embolization using gelatin sponge particles alone for women with symptomatic uterine fibroids. SUBJECTS AND METHODS During 38 months, 60 patients (age range, 32-52 years; mean age, 42.5 years) with symptomatic uterine fibroids underwent uterine artery embolization. Only gelatin sponge particles, approximately 500-1000 microm in diameter, were used in all patients. The improvement of clinical… CONTINUE READING
