Learn more about treatment. Patients with adenomyosis usually complain more about the pain than the bleeding, while for patients with fibroids, it is typically the reverse (bleeding is worse than the pain).
Adenomyosis is a non-cancerous condition of the uterus. In women with adenomyosis tlining cells of the uterus grow directly into the muscle wall of the uterus. When the lining cells the uterus bleed during the menstrual period, these misplaced cells in the muscle bleed as wellBleeding that seeps directly into the muscle causes pain.
As the blood accumulates, the surrounding muscle swells and forms fibrous tissue response to the irritation. This swollen area within the uterine muscle wall, called an adenomyomfeels very much like a fibroid during medical examination and is often confused with a fibroid onsonogram.
UFE is a procedure that can treat not just fibroids. It has been proven very effectiin the treatment of adenomyosis as well. The technique used to treat adenomyosis is virtually the saas the one used to treat uterine fibroids. The procedure is performed while the patient is conscious minimally sedated, but feeling no pain. It does not require general anesthesia.
The interventional radiologist makes a tiny incision in the groin area and insertscatheter into the femoral artery. Using real-time imaging, the physician guides the catheter through tartery and then releases tiny particles, the size of grains of sand, into the uterine arteries ablocking the blood supply to the affected tissue causing it to die and the symptoms to subside.
