Uterine embolization is proving to be a relatively non-invasive, low risk, simple technique that can treat women for uterine fibroids, non-cancerous growths in the womb. Fibroids can cause discomfort during menstruation, heavy bleeding and pain. The procedure involves inserting pellets into the arteries that supply blood to the fibroids, causing the tissue to starve and reduce in size over the short term. The procedure is having positive results, comparable with other treatments of surgical ligation of fibroids, myomectomy (removal of the surface of the womb) or hysterectomy (removal of the uterus).
