Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) procedure is used to treat fibroid tumors of the uterus. Uterine fibroids are defined as noncancerous benign tumours that develop in the layer of the uterus or womb of the patient. To treat the problem, radiologists use uterine fibroid embolization to help block flow of blood to the fibroids that are present in the uterus.

UFE is the best option for treating fibroids as opposed to surgery, in women who are not planning their pregnancies. The uterine fibroid embolization procedure is solely non-surgical and involves selection of occlusion of blood vessels. The introduction of emboli helps to block the blood vessels.

The causes of fibroids in uterus include heredity factors and over consumption of alcohol, caffeine and red meat. The symptoms of uterine fibroids include backache, anemia, discomfort in lower abdomen, constipation, pain in legs, painful periods, painful sex and swelling in lower abdomen.

Fibroids can be treated with the help of medication, including anti-inflammatory drugs and contraceptive pills. Surgery and uterine artery embolization are also useful to diagnose and treat the problem.
