Contour PVA Embolization Particles
Contour PVA Embolization particles are small and irregular flakes of polyvinyl alcohol, which are used for permanent occlusion of a blood vessel. The Contour PVA Embolization Particles have been proven safe and effective in many clinical scenarios for decades. Due to the irregular shape of PVA flakes, Contour PVA Embolization Particles are designed to occlude vessels with less material than uniform microspheres.

What Patients Say
The result for me is I don’t feel tired anymore. I feel younger than I was then. I have far more energy and a flatter looking tummy. It’s been just over a year now. My fibroid is still there but it is a lot smaller and lighter
Before UFE, during my cycle I would bleed for 10 days. But after UFE I only bled for 3-4 days and significantly less. All the other symptoms I experienced before had improved as soon as three months. I had so much energy afterward. I even started running—it was that drastic
I was thrilled to find an option other than major surgery to solve my problems with fibroids. Better yet was the fact that my recovery was days, not weeks. I missed only one day of work and was swimming even before returning to work. As time passes, I continue to be thankful for this procedure and for Dr Lawson being there throughout the embolization as well as for his continuing follow ups.
