Feeling frustrated from the disease and wants to get rid of it? But even more scared when told by your family doctor or gynaecologist that the only treatment for adenomyosis is removal of uterus i.e. Hysterectomy?
No need to panic and no need of hysterectomy. Hysterectomy is no longer needed to treat this disease. The latest new age technologically advanced treatment is Uterine Artery Embolization – A non-surgical treatment with only one day hospitalization. This treatment which was till now very popular in western countries is now available in India, in New Delhi.
Uterine Artery Embolization:
The Procedure: It is an interventional radiological procedure performed under sedation or mild local anaesthesia, feeling no pain and require hospital stay of only one night. Patient resumes light activity from next day and routine activities within 2-3 days.
It is an extremely effective treatment and treats local or diffuse adenomyosis and any associated fibroids at the same time.
A small nick is made in the skin at groin, a catheter is inserted, angiography done and uterine artery identified. Then embolization particles called PVA particles are injected into the artery which block the tiny vessel supplying the adenomyotic uterus and fibroids. This causes degeneration of diseased tissues and uterus start shrinking in size within a few weeks. Symptoms of bleeding and pain resolve in 95% of patients.
There is no blood loss, no risk of blood transfusion. Emotionally, financially & physically – embolization has an overall advantage over other procedures as uterus is not removed.
