Learn about the benefits linked to Uterine Fibroid Embolization and the low risk of adhesion development compared to myomectomy and more traditional surgeries.
Is it possible to get adhesions after Uterine Fibroid Embolization?
There are not many cases in which adhesion formation is cited after UFE. The risk of an adhesion forming after UFE is quite low compared to both Myomectomy and Hysterectomy, mostly due to the less invasive approach of embolization.
Adhesion formation can pose as a threat to fertility; therefore it is important for patients considering fertility to note this risk when looking into various fibroid treatment options. At any rate, when patients are considering fibroid treatment options and attempting to keep fertility option open, UFE should be taken into consideration. Although none of the fibroid treatment procedures can promise complete preservation of fertility, there are many cases in which embolization patients have been able to conceive after the procedure.
