    Fibroids Treatment in South Africa

    Due to the relatively new nature of fibroids treatment in South Africa, many gynaecologists are not familiar with this revolutionary option. Fibroid embolization is a minimally invasive fibroids treatment which can help treat heavy menstrual bleeding, pain, and pressure on the bladder or bowel. Unlike with some other fibroids treatment options, with fibroids embolization, the uterus is preserved making pregnancies possible.

    The purpose of fibroids embolization is to block the blood flow to the fibroids, which ultimately leads to fibroid death and shrinkage with a minimal recovery time in comparison to surgical treatment.

    Minimally Invasive Fibroids Treatment

    Fibroid Care has introduced another option for fibroids treatment, therefore, the desire to maintain fertility should not prevent you from getting fibroids treatment because the minimally invasive fibroids treatment is now available and it is known as uterine fibroids embolization. The decision to perform uterine fibroids embolisation should be a collaborative one between the interventional radiologist, the gynecologist, and most importantly, the fibroids patient.

    The content of this video is attributed to the work done by Dr. W. Walker, a leader in the field, from the Royal Surrey Hospital, England.

    Following UFE, the patient is observed for 6 hours under the direct nursing supervision and placed on a patient-controlled analgesic pump which allows patients to give themselves intravenous (I.V.) pain medicine when they need it. This allows the patient to manage their own pain control. The majority of patients are discharged the day after the procedure. A six-week follow-up visit is usually scheduled with the referring doctor. To find out more about fibroids treatment in South Africa, Namibia and in Botswana. Request a consultation here.

    How is Uterine Fibroid Embolization Performed?

    Uterine fibroid embolization is performed with a small catheter (a 2 mm flexible tube) inserted into the artery at the top of the thigh near the groin. The procedure only needs local anesthetic that numbs the thigh area. Dr Lawson will then enter selectively into both uterine arteries under imaging guidance and inject small particles that will block the blood supply to the fibroids. The Uterine Artery Embolisation procedure results in limited blood supply to the fibroids, which prevents further growth and heavy bleeding. Following UFE, the patient is observed for 6 hours under direct nursing supervision and placed on a patient-controlled analgesic pump. A patient-controlled analgesic pump is a safe way for people in pain to give themselves intravenous (I.V.) pain medicine when they need it and it allows the patient to manage their own pain control. The majority of patients are discharged the day after the procedure. A six-week follow-up visit is usually scheduled with the referring doctor

    What are the Risk Factors for Uterine Embolization?

    Uterine embolization is a procedure that has been practiced for well over two decades. Studies have shown that a high percentage of women find long-term relief of fibroid symptoms after UFE. However, not all women are good candidates for this procedure, as there are certain risk factors.

    A comprehensive understanding of the treatment options, risks, and expected outcomes is essential in making a decision about the management of your condition. Uterine artery embolization is a well-practiced procedure among interventional radiologists, associated with few complications.
