Fibroids Treatment

Tumours that grow in the muscular wall of the uterus are called "Uterine fibroids". These are benign tumours that are noncancerous in nature and are developed from the smooth muscle tissue of the uterus. This mass can generally develop in childbearing years and may grow quite large and their size may differ from the size of a pea to a lemon. The exact cause of the development of fibroids is still unknown but several factors influence their formation including family history and hormonal changes. Since fibroids do not produce early symptoms, it is difficult to diagnose them early. It is estimated that every 3 out of 4 women has some or the other form of fibroids in their lifetime. The lady having fibroids may experience symptoms like heavy menstrual flow, prolonged menses, frequent urination, constipation, back or leg pains, difficulty in emptying the bladder, pain in pelvic area etc.

There are mainly 4 types of fibroids that develop at different locations in and on the uterus.

Uterine fibroids can result in developing two different types of uterine conditions which can be catheterized under as:

A. Cancerous uterine conditions

B. Noncancerous uterine conditions

Treatment of fibroids depends on the age of the patient, her medical condition and obstetric history, size and type of fibroid. The common criteria associated with selection of treatment also depend on the symptoms like:



Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE)

The procedure is done by an interventional radiologist. The patient is sedated and a needle is inserted into the leg and a catheter is connected to the artery and x-ray is taken. Particles of polyvinyl alcohol are injected that block the arterial supply for the fibroid. Thus, the uterine arteries are embolized and the blood supply to the fibroids is cut off, so that the fibroids shrink and disintegrate. The patient has to remain in bed for 6 hours with the leg straight. Pain can be managed with medicines after the procedure.

Recovery time for laparoscopic and all minimally invasive procedures require an overnight stay in the hospital. Uterine Artery Embolization procedure involves overnight stay at the hospital but total recovery will happen in 7 to 10 days. Vaginal hysterectomy usually takes 24 hours stay at the hospital. Mild pain persists for approximately for 10 days. Whereas with abdominal hysterectomy, it takes 3 to 4 days of hospital stay and total recovery needs 4- 6 weeks.

85% to 90% of the patients have significant resolution of symptoms such as pain, heavy bleeding etc. Hysterectomy is a permanent treatment where uterus is taken out and there are no chances of having fibroids after that. The flip side is that the woman cannot get pregnant after hysterectomy. Myomectomy has good results with resolution of all symptoms. Chances of recurrence of fibroids have to be consulted with the doctor.

Minimally invasive techniques require only an overnight stay or a 24 hour stay. But traditional surgeries like abdominal myomectomy and open hysterectomy require longer hospital stay and recovery time. It depends on the type of treatment procedure.
