What is Uterine Embolization in Miami Beach & How Can the Team at PVC Help?
Uterine fibroid embolization it’s essentially a minimally invasive, short procedure in which the person’s detected uterine fibroids are removed. And maybe you’ve heard about this treatment option before, but have been too afraid to give it a chance thinking that it could impact your uterus or fertility in negative ways. These are just misconceptions however, and couldn’t be further from the truth. The procedure is completely safe and doesn’t put your health at risk in any way. Whilst the procedure is being performed and after it has been completed, both your uterus and fertility are preserved. Prior to the procedure you may have experienced heavy bleeding and abdominal swelling, but once you choose to get this procedure, the likeliness that you will have to undergo this again, is slim to none. The intent of the procedure is to drastically reduce the uterine fibroids in size and to soften them, although it won’t remove them completely.
During the procedure, an interventional radiologist will use a catheter, injecting small particles (embolic agents) into the small blood vessels that lead to the fibroids. These agents will block these arteries, starving the fibroids and causing them to die. Throughout the procedure, our medical experts will use imaging technology and techniques to view what’s happening in live time. We will also make sure to provide you with the necessary medication during the procedure, to ensure that you are comfortable.
