Uterine Fibroid Embolization- Long Term Follow up and Technical Perspectives
60 patients randomise in the two groups each group consist of the 30 patients. Group 1: 30
patients treat with Bead-block microparticles, 700-900µm until flowstop.
Group 2: 30 patient treat with Bead-block microparticles, combinations of the 1ml -500-700
µm particle, if a.uterine is < 3 mm, follow by 700-900 µm particle until blood flowstop
or with 2 ml -500-700 µm particle if arteria uterine has diameter of > 3 mm follow by
embolisation with 700-900 µm particle until blood flowstop.
Clinical and technical success as well as clinic and radiological follow up after 3 and 12
months. MR of the pelvis examination with contrast, 3 and 12 month after intervention will
control infraction degree.
Retrospective study compromised all patient treated between 2001 until 2011 with follow up
and re-intervention as well as complications rate analysis.
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Primary goal is to achieve release of symptoms after intervention and it would be compared between the two techniques
