What are some of the side effects and potential complications after UAE?

The side effects and complications after having undergone a Uterine Artery Embolization are few, but there are a some minor post-UAE symptoms that have been noted.  One of the most common minor issues that patients experience after the procedure is pain. The pain, however, is often manageable with pain medication and patients are usually able to go home the same day. Any pain that patients do experience post-UAE often do not last more than the 5-7 day recovery period; therefore, most women are able to return to work as well as their daily activities within a short period of time.

Also, there is a slight risk of infection in the embolized fibroid, but this is usually managed with antibiotics. There have also been very rare cases of embolization particles traveling to the ovaries, causing issues with ovarian function; however, as stated before, these cases are extremely rare.

Overall, Uterine Artery Embolization is an effective, non-invasive treatment that has gained much medical and patient acceptance. Today more than several hundred thousand women world-wide have found relief with this safe, simple procedure. The Fibroid Treatment Collective performed the very first fibroid embolization in America, and has perfected the procedure with thousands of successful treatments to date.
