UFE is a minimally invasive procedure where an interventional radiologist inserts a catheter into the uterine arteries to treat fibroids in your uterus. We release particles that block blood flow to the fibroids in order to shrink them and relieve you of symptoms.

UFE Treatment for Uterine Fibroids

DVVI is a highly certified and credentialed medical center specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of vein and vascular disorders. Our Uterine Fibroids Treatment is one of our many embolization procedures that are focused on improving women’s health. Providing a less invasive method of treatment gives patients a safe and convenient alternative to traditional surgical procedures. The Fibroid Center at Desert Vein & Vascular Institute specializes in the evaluation and treatment of uterine fibroids and chronic pelvic pain such as pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS). The uterus heals once we’re able to kill and shrink the fibroids. The following symptoms are reduced or eliminated.

Symptoms That Typically Require
Uterine Fibroids Treatment

Heavy Menstrual Bleeding.

Bowel or Bladder Pressure.

Chronic Fatigue and Anemia.

Pelvic Pain or Intercourse Pain.

UFE Should NOT Be Performed:

When the pelvis is infected or inflamed

If you’re pregnant or asymptomatic

When there’s a possibility for cancer

WHAT TO EXPECT PRIOR TO UTERINE
FIBROIDS TREATMENT

Planning on scheduling an evaluation for UFE at our Vascular Center in Peoria, Arizona? Prior to your initial
consultation or appointment, we ask that you allocate all imaging files and medical records that are relevant to your fibroid condition. Upon arrival, you can expect a detailed review of your medical history in addition to a thorough physical exam. If imaging has not been obtained, a pelvic ultrasound or an MRI will be ordered to fully assess the size, number and location of the fibroids. On the subsequent visit, important imaging findings will be reviewed with each patient and the UFE procedure will be discussed in detail. If you end up deciding that UFE is right for you, we’ll go ahead and schedule the procedure at our endovascular surgical center at a later date that’s convenient for you.
