Expert Explains Why Plastic Particles are Safe for UFE

The particles we use are made of PVA (polyvinyl alcohol). PVA has been used safely in many medical prostheses for more than 3 decades.


It is the additives in the plastic when making utensils like water bottles and food containers that are potentially harmful. Pure plastics are chemically and biochemically inert, meaning they will not react with the body.


PVA particles are wrapped up by scar-like tissue, remain in place permanently and will not migrate elsewhere.



Dr Eisen Liang is an interventional radiologist with special interest in gynaecological intervention such as Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (UFE), adenomyosis embolisation and ovarian vein embolisation for pelvic congestion syndrome. He performed his first UFE in 1998 and has been performing UFE at Sydney Adventist Hospital since 2007.
