Women in O&G Meeting 7pm Wed 15th August 2012 Quay West The Rocks

Dr Eisen Liang - Thursday, September 20, 2012

Interventional radiologist Dr Eisen Liang and Gynaecologist Dr Bevan Brown presented their first Australian series of uterine artery embolisation in the treatment of fibroids and adenomyosis.

The women gynaecologist audience were pleased to find that now there is a minimally invasive treatment for adenomyosis which was traditionally treated with hysterectomy.

The women gynaecologists were also very interested in use of ovarian vein embolisation for management of pelvic congestion syndrome-an under-diagnosed and under-recognised condition.

Dr Eisen Liang - Thursday, September 20, 2012

Dr Eisen Liang and co-author Dr Bevan Brown presented their experience treating fibroids and adenomyosis using uterine artery embolisation.

Cross specialty collaboration between Interventional Radiology and Gynaecology ensured that women were offered the full set of minimally invasive options in treating symptoms of fibroids and adenomyosis. Dr Brown pointed out the various short and long term adverse effects of hysterectomy which is no longer needed with availability of less invasive options.

Dr Liang presents UFE audit data to Gynaecologists’ meeting

Dr Eisen Liang - Wednesday, May 23, 2012
First Australian case series of uterine fibroid embolisation will be presented by Dr Eisen Liang at the forthcoming Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists 2011 Annual Scientific Meeting being held from 27 – 30 November 2011 at the Melbourne Convention Centre (http://www.ranzcog.edu.au/ ). The title of the presentation is Clinical Audit: Efficacy of Uterine Artery Embolisation for Treatment of Symptomatic Fibroids and Adenomyosis – An Interim Report on an Australian Experience. The clinical audit conducted by Dr Liang confirmed the safety and effectiveness of uterine artery embolisation in treating fibroid and adenomyosis related symptoms. The overall success rate was 93%, with 73% of women “very happy” with the outcome and another 20% of women “happy” with the outcome. Heavy periods were controlled in 96% of patients. Significant improvement in bladder symptoms and period pain were also noted. Very high success was also found in women with adenomyosis. (To see the poster of the presentation please click here). The paper has been accepted for publication in the The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology (ANZJOG) (http://www.ranzcog.edu.au/publications/anzjog/about-anzjog.html)

Editorial in ANZJOG in response to Dr Liang’s audit paper on UFE

Dr Eisen Liang - Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Dr Brendan T. Buckley has written a timely editorial in ANZJOG, entitled Uterine artery embolisation: challenges and opportunities in cross-specialty care. This was in response to Dr Liang’s paper reporting the first Australian UFE series confirming the safety and efficacy of the procedure. The Editorial was published in the April 2012 issue of ANZJOG, together with Dr Liang’s paper. The Editorial highlights the importance of fully informing patients of their treatment choices. It also emphasises  the importance of collaboration between Interventional Radiology and Gynaecology, not only in routine patient care, but also in research and development of new treatments.
