UFE Risk Factors

Risks Associated with Hysterectomy
A hysterectomy has been associated with numerous long-term physical and physiological effects including incontinence, loss of sexual pleasure and depression. The most common complications associated with hysterectomy are vaginitis, drug reactions, and urinary tract infections, with some more serious complications reported after 30 days including pneumonia, bowel injury, vaginal cuff herniation, and recurrent bleeding from the vaginal stump.

Risks Associated with UFE
Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a proven, safe procedure for treating symptomatic fibroids with minimal risk. Infrequent complications have been reported following UFE. Complications associated with UFE include, but are not limited to the following: short-term allergic reaction/rash, fibroid passage, recurrent/prolonged pain and groin hematoma.
