Outcome After UFE 

Overview

Embarking on a journey toward improved health often involves navigating through various treatment options. For women dealing with uterine fibroids, choosing the right intervention is a pivotal step towards reclaiming a better quality of life. 

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) has emerged as a compelling choice, presenting a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery and promising positive outcomes.

As we delve into the world of UFE and its impact on women’s health, questions naturally arise: What lies beyond the procedure itself? What can women expect in terms of outcomes, both physically and emotionally, as they embark on the path of recovery?

Results After Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)

After undergoing Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), patients can experience a range of positive outcomes and improvements in their overall health. The benefits of UFE typically become noticeable after two to three months, with fibroids continuing to shrink for six to nine months or more.

Here are some key UFE results:

One of the most remarkable Uterine Fibroid Embolization results is the significant relief from symptoms accompanying uterine fibroids, with an approximate success rate of 90%. 

Most individuals undergoing the procedure experience a dramatic improvement in symptoms, coupled with a noticeable decrease in the size of their fibroids.

Following embolization, fibroids undergo a natural shrinking process, just like they shrink after menopause.

Patients undergoing uterine fibroid embolization often observe reduced bleeding, pelvic pain, pressure, and other symptoms associated with uterine fibroids. This procedure contributes to a notable improvement in physical and emotional well-being.

This often translates into heightened energy levels, an uplifted mood, and an increased sense of overall fulfillment and vitality.

One of the anticipated UFE results involves alterations in the menstrual cycle. 

Typically, abnormally heavy periods become significantly lighter, and some women may even experience a missed period or two.

Those with submucosal fibroids present with heavy bleeding with passage of large clots. Now after UFE, they do not feel anxious about unpredictable onset of periods or passage of large clots during menses. Heavy bleeding usually improves during the first menstrual cycle following UFE.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) emerges as a recommended therapy option for women dealing with fibroids and aims to enhance fertility. 

Recent findings reveal that the occurrence of pregnancy-related complications in women opting for UFE to address fibroids is not notably different from that of healthy women without fibroids. 

Furthermore, women with fibroids undergoing UFE experience a notably lower rate of complications compared to alternative treatment approaches.

UFE demonstrates sustained efficacy in managing fibroid symptoms over the long term. Many patients enjoy lasting relief, with a lower risk of fibroid recurrence compared to alternative treatments.

But if you notice the return or worsening of any symptoms, it’s best to discuss it with your doctor.

Expected Outcome after UFE (in Inset Box):

  • Average reduction of dominant fibroid volume is 50-60% by 3-6 months

  • Overall Uterine volume reduction: 40-50% by 3-6 months

  • Significant improvement of heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia) in more than 90% patients

  • Significant improvement in pelvic cramps (dysmenorrhea) in up to 80% of patients

  • Significant improvement in bulk and pressure related symptoms in up to 90% of patients

  • High satisfaction-rate in up to 80-90% of patients
