What is a Uterine Fibroid Embolisation?

Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (UFE) is the blocking of the arteries (blood vessels) that supply blood to the fibroids causing them to shrink in size or disappear. A specially trained doctor called a Radiologist performs this minimally invasive procedure in a screening room in the X-ray department. Your doctors will perform the necessary tests before recommending you this procedure. You can discuss any concerns you may have with your Gynaecologist and the Radiologist during consultations.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

Every patient's situation is different, for a variety of reasons, however you can expect to be in the X-ray department for about 2 to 3 hours.

Uterine Fibroid Embolisation Procedure

Before the Procedure

You cannot eat for 6 hours before the procedure but you may drink small amounts of clear fluid up to 2 hours before the procedure. Before you come to the x-ray department nursing staff will give you medication and you may have an intravenous drip.

During the Procedure

A nurse will guide you to lie on your back on the x-ray table. They may give you sedatives or painkillers via a needle in your arm and monitor your vital signs (blood pressure, pulse, oxygen intake). You may be given oxygen support if needed. The radiologist will inject a local anaesthetic into the groin, make a small cut, and place a catheter in the artery which can help find the arteries supplying blood to the fibroids. X-rays are used for guidance during the procedure.

Tiny particles are injected into the arteries until the blood flow is stopped. Doctors then remove the catheter and apply pressure on the groin area for about 10 minutes to prevent bruising.


The procedure itself is relatively painless but most patients experience some moderate pain lasting up to 24 hours after the procedure. When you return to your ward, you will be given painkillers to relieve pain. If the painkillers cause nausea and/or vomiting, other medications will be provided. Many patients need bed rest only for a few hours. The nursing staff will monitor you and carry out routine observations (blood pressure, pulse, etc.). They will also monitor the puncture site to ensure there is no bleeding.

Most women are well enough to go home the following day, although pain may continue for a week, occasionally two. A mild discharge can occur for a few days or weeks after the procedure. However, you should be fit and return to work within a few weeks.

Are There Any Risks & Complications of Uterine Fibroid Embolisation?

Early experience suggests Uterine Fibroid Embolisation is a safe procedure and serious complications are rare. 

  • Pain is very common in the first 24 hours and can be severe but this can be controlled by painkillers. 

  • There may be bruising in the groin area where the artery is punctured but this should settle after a few days.

  • Very rarely an infection may develop in the womb in the weeks after the procedure.

  • If you have a coil (IUCD) fitted, it is best to remove this before the procedure to remove the risk of infection. You must tell the doctor about this before your procedure.

  • Fibroid Expulsion - Some women (10%) report a vaginal discharge which may include pieces of tissue. This usually clears up within a few weeks but can continue for several weeks or months.

  • Premature Menopause - Around 2% of women will experience premature menopause as a result of embolisation.
