New Research Sheds Light on UFE vs. Hysterectomy

Posted in Fibroid Relief News

A new study in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology points to the positive benefits of uterine fibroid embolization – a minimally invasive treatment option highlighted frequently on the Fibroid Relief website and in Facebook discussions among patients.

The study, comprised of 150 women in their 40’s who had had a hysterectomy and the other half who had secured an embolization, revealed some interesting findings.  After a five year period, all women in the study experienced no difference in their physical or mental quality of life.  More than 4 out of 5 women in both groups were very satisfied with the treatment they had received.

For women suffering from uterine fibroids, learning about treatment options such as UFE is an important process in finding RELIEF.  There IS a treatment option out there for you.
