The study conducted on women with uterine fibroid embolization has helped to prove that women can regain fertility. The minimally invasive treatment of uterine fibroids can help women with pregnancy, finds out new studies. Pisco and colleagues made the study possible which was published online in general radiology.

The abnormal masses of muscle tissue and fiber in the wall of the uterus are the most common cause of infertility. The study has found that one out of every five women suffering from fibroids has a problem related to fertility. It mostly affects the complications related to pregnancy; the treatment for such women is myomectomy or surgical removal of the fibroids. Fibroid Surgery cost is even the main reason that women could not think of the surgery but study have proved that there are options that women could continue the treatment.

Myomectomy is possible and it is effective resulting in major complications including hysterectomy. Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive option that involves the injection of an embolic agent. It is made up of very small beads into the uterine arteries to block the blood supply to the uterus and fibroids. When fibroids die, it began to shrink and uterus fully recover prior to the myomectomy or in vitro fertilization (IVF) UFE is performed in the patients.

The new study conducted assessed the pregnancy rates in women with uterine fibroids that women were unable to conceive and underwent conventional or partial UFE. After the follow-up of six years, 41% of women become pregnant and 30% gave birth to babies. This became the first pregnancy for more than 80% of women who gave birth.

The complication rate for partial UFE and conventional UFE  is in between 14%- 23%. This procedure was repeated in 28 women with the same problem whose fibroids were adequately treated as shown by MRI, from them, 11 got pregnant subsequently.

Pisco and colleagues after studying the experiment found that after the follow-up of women for five to six years the live newborn rate of women becoming pregnant was 71%, and 85% of women it was their first pregnancy.

Pisco said in an interview, “The study we conducted shows that embolization of uterine fibroids helps improve fertilization in women who wish to conceive.” He further continued, “Till now, the procedure could not be performed because of its compromised fertility, but the study proved that this method could help women.”
