Researchers of the Dutch Multicenter Randomized Embolization vs. Hysterectomy trial found that embolization is a good alternative to hysterectomy, and 90% of all patients were at least moderately satisfied with their treatment. They wrote that patients who want “absolute certainty” may prefer a hysterectomy, but women who want a faster recovery and to keep their uterus, embolization is preferred. 177 women were assigned to embolization or hysterectomy to treat fibroids and outcomes were measured over 24 months using quality-of-life questionnaires.
