Uterine artery embolization
Record ID 32010000955
Uterine artery embolization (UAE), also known as uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), is an angiographic procedure in which small particles or microspheres are used to occlude the uterine arteries, with the goal of depriving fibroids of their blood supply, causing them to shrink in size. The objective of UAE is to relieve the symptoms associated with fibroids and to preserve childbearing potential.
