uterine artery embolization (UAE) is a well-established treatment modality for symptomatic leiomyomas and has been practiced primarily in patients who wish to retain their uterus. The effectiveness of UAE in reducing the pain and bulk symptoms associated with leiomyoma has been clearly shown in prior studies, and UAE compares favorably to its surgical alternatives in terms of rapid recovery time, reduced cost, and shorter hospital stay . In addition, UAE is known to have a very low risk of adverse events both in the periprocedure time period and after recovery.Of note, one risk associated with UAE that can be serious is venous thromboembolism(VTE), which is quite rare but still a concern because of its potential grave consequences.
