Women's InterventionWomen's Intervention

Interventional Radiology (IR) has introduced minimally invasive treatment options for women in addition to those available by Gynaecologists. IR procedures for women, including fibroid embolisation have been performed for nearly two decades with extensive research showing them to be safe and effective, and have the additional benefit of allowing women to return to normal activity often within days.

Procedures

Fibroid Embolisation: ('Uterine Artery Embolisation' / 'UAE')

The introduction of uterine artery embolisation or 'Fibroid Embolisation' nearly 20 years ago has provided a minimally invasive option for women with symptomatic uterine fibroids who would like uterine preserving treatment. Fibroid embolisation has been researched extensively and has been shown to be a safe and effective procedure for many women with symptomatic fibroids. Uterine artery embolisation has also been shown to be effective in adenomyosis, a condition where there is an increased amount of glandular tissue in the uterus. A patient guide is available to download with more information.

Pelvic Venous Congestion – Ovarian vein embolisation:

Pelvic Venous Congestion is known by a number of names including, pelvic venous congestion syndrome (PVCS), and pelvic venous insufficiency (PVI). Pelvic venous congestion can result in pain or discomfort deep in the pelvis that typically gets worse at the end of the day. It requires a detailed clinical assessment and if found to be the cause of symptoms can be treated from inside the veins. Access to the veins is performed through a nick in the skin (in the neck or groin) with light sedation and local anaesthetic. The procedure can be performed as a day case.
