Women with fibroids usually don’t need a major surgery to deal with their symptoms. Yet each year more than 6000 hysterectomies are performed in NSW alone. There is a lack of awareness amongst GPs and public regarding UFE and other minimally invasive options. Australian women should be adequately informed and empowered to choose the best treatment for themselves. GPs have an important role to play in advocating for less invasive options.

Fact Sheet on Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (UFE)

Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (UFE) is also know as Uterine Artery Embolisation (UAE)

UFE is a safe and effective non-surgical alternative to hysterectomy. This has been proven by numerous studies.

UFE is no longer new or experimental. It has been around for more than 18 years.

UFE is a fibroid treatment option endorsed by Colleges of Gynaecologists in Australian and New Zealand, UK and USA

From our local experience in Sydney, we have 93% overall success rate, with 73% patients very happy and 20% happy with the UFE outcome.

For menorrhagia 96% of patients have resolution or significant improvement of their symptoms.

For dysmenorrhea, 89% has at least some improvement, 75% has at least significant improvement, 56% has complete resolution

For urinary symptoms, 50% has significant improvement or resolution of symptoms, 97% has at least some improvement.

Adenomyosis has been successful treated by UAE as well.
Uterine volume reduction of 50% is expected @ 6 months; dominant fibroid volume reduction of 60% is expected @ 6 months.

There were no procedural complications in our series published. There were 3 delayed endometritis (5%), two managed with antibiotics, one semi-elective hysterectomy.

Condoleezza Rice had her UFE in 2004 on a Friday afternoon and went back to work in the White House on Monday morning.
