PURPOSE: To investigate the potential of diffusion and perfusion indices (ADC and perfusion fraction f) from DWI at 3.0 T in monitoring treatment response to uterine artery embolization (UAE) at 6-month follow-up. METHODS: Twelve female patients with uterine fibroids who underwent 3.0-T pelvic DWI before and 6 months after UAE were included. ADC and perfusion fraction f were calculated from DWI. The Wilcoxon signed-rank test and Spearman rank correlation test were used for statistics...

PURPOSE: To compare outcomes of percutaneous robot-assisted uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) using two different endovascular robotic catheters. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with a symptomatic uterine fibroid were prospectively enrolled in a single-center study to be treated with a percutaneous robot-assisted embolization using the Magellan system. Fourteen patients were treated using a first generation steerable robotic catheter, version 1.0 (group 1), and seven were treated using the new version 1...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of uterine artery embolization (UAE) on ovarian reserve as measured by Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Non-randomized, observational study of 89 women 23-40 years of age who received UAE. Control hormone levels were measured prior to UAE and the first post-embolization measurement was taken at various times post-procedure (mean = 190 ± 229 days). RESULTS: Historical work verified by our earlier work has shown that AMH levels decline with age...

We report a rare case of temporary anorgasmia following uterine artery embolization (UAE) performed for symptomatic uterine fibroids. To our knowledge, this is only the second time that this complication has been reported in the literature. We briefly explore the possible pathophysiologic explanations for this complication and review the effects of UAE compared to hysterectomy on sexual functioning in women.

Fibroid nonenhancement is considered a relative contraindication to uterine artery embolization (UAE) for symptomatic fibroids. This retrospective study assessed the impact of UAE on nonenhancing fibroids to determine imaging predictors of fibroid shrinkage. All women who underwent UAE for symptomatic fibroids between May 2009 and July 2014 and had follow-up magnetic resonance imaging 6 months after UAE were included. There were 59 fibroids (5 nonenhancing, 54 enhancing) among 18 women aged 40 to 53 (mean 46) years...

Purpose To determine pregnancy rates after conventional and partial uterine fibroid embolization (UFE). Materials and Methods The study received institutional review board approval and all patients gave written informed consent. A retrospective analysis of data collected prospectively was performed between June 2004 and June 2014 in a cohort of 359 women (mean age, 35.9 years ± 4.8) with uterine fibroids and/or adenomyosis who were unable to conceive. The median follow-up period was 69 months (range, 6-126 months)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate whether the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal intensity (SI) ratio between the dominant fibroid and the periphery striated muscle can predict fibroid volume reduction >50% after uterine fibroid embolization (UFE). MATERIALS AND METHODS: From October 2013 until May 2016, 52 patients were included in this prospective study. The SI ratio before UFE was calculated using circular region of interests placed on the dominant fibroid and the iliac muscle...

Benign metastasizing leiomyomas (BMLs) are rare sequelae of common uterine leiomyomas and most frequently found in the lungs. Most cases of BMLs occur with a history of prior gynecologic procedures; however, none have yet been reported in association with uterine artery embolization (UAE). This case report highlights the disease course for a 48-yo female with a history of both myomectomy and UAE for uterine fibroids who presented later with bilateral pulmonary BMLs. Though the pathophysiology of BMLs is poorly understood and this case is confounded by prior myomectomy, it does bring into question whether UAE has a role in BML development...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to assess clinical outcomes 7 years after uterine artery embolization (UAE) in the treatment of symptomatic adenomyosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, one specialized hospital in the Netherlands recruited patients with symptomatic adenomyosis or adenomyosis in combination with fibroids for UAE. The 7-year post-intervention outcomes were health-related quality of life (HRQOL), symptom severity scores (SSS), satisfaction, menopause and re-interventions...

PURPOSE: To assess radiation dose reduction during uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) using an optimized angiographic processing and acquisition platform. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Radiation dose data for 70 women (mean age, 46 y; range, 34-67 y) who underwent UFE were retrospectively analyzed. Twenty-one patients underwent UFE using the baseline fluoroscopic and angiographic image acquisition platform, and 49 underwent UFE after implementing an optimized imaging platform in otherwise identical angiography suites...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate the effect of Embosphere microsphere artery embolization on the serum level of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in patients with uterine fibroid. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From March 2014 to December 2015, 128 women in child-bearing age with uterine intramural fibroids were enrolled in the patient group. At the same time, 128 healthy cases in child-bearing age were randomly selected and enrolled in the control group. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was used to measure the serum level of VEGF, and immunohistochemical staining method was used to study the expression of VEGF in the uterine fibroids...

OBJECTIVES: The main goal of the study was to evaluate sexual function before and one year after UFE. The secondary goals were to evaluate the quality of life before and one year after UFE and to determine the relation of imaging findings (MRI data) before and 3-6 months after UFE to changes in sexual function and quality of life. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Study design: a prospective, multicenter (25 centers) observational study was conducted. PATIENTS: a total of 264 consecutive symptomatic women undergoing UFE using Embozene® (Celonova) from March 2012 to May 2013 were enrolled...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) on uterine fibroids of women of childbearing age and uterine artery embolization (UAE) using Embosphere microspheres. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 128 eligible women were randomly divided into an experimental group and a control group (n = 64) who received UAE using Embosphere microspheres and panhysterectomy, respectively. Another 128 healthy women receiving physical examination in the same period were also enrolled...
