An alternative to hysterectomy.

Abstract
For many women with symptomatic fibroids, hysterectomy has been an undesirable, but definitive, treatment for their condition. The good news is that uterine artery embolization, a new approach that shrinks fibroids by embolizing their blood supply, is proving to be a safe and effective alternative.
