Why would someone need a second Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


Very rarely, some patients who have especially larger fibroids, can attract blood supply from another spot other than the arteries that feed the uterus the uterine artery. It can come from the ovarian artery or another branch. So if that has been, and that’s not identified under the first time, then you may have to get a second embolization, but again, that is very uncommon, and that’s only if it doesn’t succeed, in fact in the whole fibroid.
