Uterine myoma ; menorrhagia ; uterine arterial embolization
Uterine myoma is the most common benign pelvic tumor in women. Especially, hemorrhage, probably related to hypervasculization, is the most complication of uterine myoma and is difficult to treat. We investigated whether arterial embolization of myoma might reduce or eliminate symptoms. She underwent uterine artery embolization with Gelform and polyvinyl alcohol. And then resolution of symptom observed in this case. It was probably due to obstruction of the blood supply by using arterial embolization. Arterial embolization to treat uterine myoma represents a promising method, resulting in resolution of menorrhagia and related another symptoms. We experienced a case of improvement of menorrhagia, with reductions in uterine size after the successful uterine arterial embolization. However, longterm follow-up will be necessary to establish the efficacy of this procedure.
