The results of a recent study, published in Radiology magazine, showed that women who opted for Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) – also known as Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) – as treatment for fibroids over hysterectomy had had an equal quality of life.
The Dutch study of 177 women indicated both methods were successful in improving quality of life for women suffering from uterine fibroids. But with UFE, women have a shorter hospital stay and recover more quickly. The women who took part in the study were followed for more than two years following treatment. Their quality of life was assessed six different times during that two-year stretch. More than 90 percent of the patients in the study who opted for UFE were satisfied with the outcomes.
