This learning module is designed for:
Interventional radiologists

Mentice Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE), also known as Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), is designed for teams to learn the procedural steps used in the treatment of symptomatic fibroid disease. The module provides the essentials needed to learn UAE in a simulated setting, and facilitates discussions on the techniques associated with gaining access to the uterine arteries, as well as embolization in a learner-focused, risk-free training environment.

UAE has in recent years emerged as an alternative to treat uterine fibroids due to encouraging results for symptomatic fibroid disease. The procedure requires careful catheter and wire manipulation to gain and maintain access to the uterine artery. Particles are then carefully injected through the catheter to block the blood flow to the fibroid. It is vital that the service is delivered by the gynecologist and the endovascular specialist in a team approach.
