BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The quadratus lumborum (QL) block has been widely used for acute postoperative pain management after numerous surgical procedures including urological, abdominal, gynaecological and orthopaedic surgical procedures. The local anaesthetic spread in this area can provide unilateral sensory block in T6-L2 dermatomes. We performed bilateral quadratus lumborum block for the management of acute pain after the uterine artery embolization (UAE). METHODS: A 43-year-old woman was admitted to the gynaecology department of Mother and Child Hospital, University Medical Center, for uterine artery embolization...

OBJECTIVE: Acquired uterine arteriovenous malformation (UAVM) is a rare, life-threatening disease. Angiography with uterine arterial embolization (UAE) is the diagnostic tool and a choice of fertility-sparing treatment. Here, we present a series of five successful pregnancies after embolization of UAVM. CASE REPORTS: Three reproductive aged women were treated for UAVM, resulting in five successful pregnancies. Their past history suggested that three cases had had previous uterine procedures, including second trimester abortion and elective dilatation and curettage...

Interventional radiologists are often called for emergent control of abnormal uterine bleeding. Bleeding, even heavy bleeding as a result of uterine fibroids is not a common emergent procedure; instead, pregnancy and pregnancy related conditions, trauma and malignancy associated with bleeding can be the source of many interventional radiology on call events or procedures. Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the most common cause, and is defined as blood loss of 500mL after vaginal delivery or 1000mL after cesarean section...

We present a case study of a patient who underwent uterine artery embolization (UAE) using Gelfoam™ (Pfizer, New York, NY, USA) and had a subsequent pregnancy. Our patient, a 38-year-old female (4 Gravida/2 Para), underwent UAE for treatment of symptomatic myoma in September 2005. At the patient's seven-month post procedure visit, she experienced a 43.9% volume reduction in uterine size and 74.5% reduction in volume of the largest fibroid and relief of bulk symptoms and menorrhagia. The patient had a term delivery of healthy twin infants 15 months post embolization...

Uterine fibroids (also known as leiomyomas or myomas) are the most common form of benign uterine tumors. Current management strategies mainly involve surgical interventions, but the choice of treatment is guided by patient's age and desire to preserve fertility or avoid "radical" surgery. Surgical and non-surgical approaches include hysterectomy myomectomy by hysteroscopy, myomectomy by laparotomy or laparoscopy, uterine artery embolization, and magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery. The need for alternatives to surgical intervention is very real, especially for women seeking to preserve their fertility...

Uterine leiomyoma is the most frequently occurring solid pelvic tumor in women during the reproductive period. Magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound is a promising technique for decreasing menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea in symptomatic women. The aim of this study is to review the role of Magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound in the treatment of uterine fibroids in symptomatic patients. We performed a review of the MEDLINE and Cochrane databases up to April 2016. The analysis and data collection were performed using the following keywords: Leiomyoma, High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Ablation, Ultrasonography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Menorrhagia...

Cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) is a rare type of ectopic pregnancy. It is becoming more common, but it can lead to uterine rupture and severe hemorrhage. Here, we report a case of a 37-year-old woman with CSP complicated with pseudoaneurysm. The pseudoaneurysm emerged following focal injection of methotrexate (MTX) and potassium chloride with systemic MTX treatment. Due to a risk of sudden bleeding, uterine artery embolization (UAE) was recommended, but the patient hoped to avoid this if possible. Because the serum human chorionic gonadotropin level and the gestational sac were still persistent, dilation and curettage were performed with interventional radiologists on standby...

BACKGROUND: Recent results show a protective effect of tranexamic acid on death due to bleeding in patients with postpartum hemorrhage in low- and middle-resource countries. We quantify the association between early administration of tranexamic acid compared to late or no administration and severe acute maternal morbidity and blood loss among women suffering from persistent severe postpartum hemorrhage in a high-income country. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We performed a nationwide retrospective cohort study in 61 hospitals in the Netherlands...

Hysterectomy, the driving force for symptomatic uterine fibroids since 1895, has decreased over the years, but it is still the number one choice for many women. Since 1995, uterine artery embolization (UAE) has been proven by many researchers to be an effective treatment for uterine fibroids while allowing women to keep their uteri. The preponderance of data collection and research has focused on care quality in terms of efficiency and effectiveness, with little on location and viability related to care utilization, accessibility and physical availability...

OBJECTIVE: We report here an initial experience using 4D flow MRI in pelvic imaging-specifically, in imaging uterine fibroids. We hypothesized that blood flow might correlate with fibroid volume and that quantifying blood flow might help to predict the amount of embolic required to achieve stasis at subsequent uterine fibroid embolization (UFE). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-three patients with uterine fibroids and seven control subjects underwent pelvic MRI with 4D flow imaging...
