Arterial Embolisation is a pinhole minimally invasive or non-surgical procedure.
Over the past few decades, advances in arterial embolisation have transformed the procedure into a safer, more effective one with a quick recovery - most patients are fully recovered within two weeks.
The procedure is carried out in a Cath Lab by an interventional radiologist.
It involves in blocking of blood supply through a blood vessel to an abnormal area of tissue.
During the procedure, a small incision is made in the inner thigh and a thin flexible tube (catheter) is inserted and guided into an artery near abnormal tissue.
Once the catheter is in place, micron sized particles are injected which blocks the artery and stops the flow of blood to the tumor or abnormal area of tissue.
Arterial Embolisation or Trans-arterial embolisation (TAE) is used to treat Fibroids, Enlarged Prostate, Knee Osteoarthritis, Liver Tumor, Chronic Pelvic Pain (Pelvic Congestion Syndrome), Weight Loss, and even some types of kidney cancer, and neuroendocrine tumors.
At Aster Medcity, we always strive to deliver complete, comprehensive and compassionate care at one-place. All the treatment options are made available to them. The best possible treatment plan is derived keeping the patient's conditions in mind.
Non-Surgical treatment for the patients with Uterine Fibroids
Fibroids are benign tumours of the uterus, mostly seen in women during their reproductive age. More than 50% of the patients with uterine fibroid remain asymptomatic, hence needing no treatment at all. However, in many women, these may cause heavy menstrual bleeding, prolonged periods, anaemia, dysmenorrhea (painful periods), intermenstrual bleeding and infertility requiring medical attention. Large fibroids can also cause bloating, pelvic pressure, increased urine frequency and bowel disturbance.

Patient can walk out of procedure room.
Very less pain & No rest needed
Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat fibroid tumors of the uterus which can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, pain, and pressure on the bladder or bowel. It uses a form of real-time x-ray called fluoroscopy to guide the delivery of embolic agents to the uterus and fibroids.
These agents block the arteries that provide blood to the fibroids and cause them to shrink. Studies have shown that nearly 90 percent of women who undergo UFE experience significant or complete resolution of their fibroid-related symptoms.
