Uterine Fibroid Embolization Cost in Hyderabad
Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is commonly referred to as uterine artery embolization and it is a minimally invasive procedure carried out to treat uterine fibroids. The cost of uterine fibroid embolization ranges from 1,50,000/- to 2,00,000/-.
The procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia by an interventional radiologist using fluoroscopy. The procedure starts with accessing the femoral artery by making a small incision in the groin area. Now a thin catheter will be sent into the femoral artery and guided into the uterine artery.
Then a contrast fluid is injected to map the location of the fibroid on a fluoroscope monitor. Once the fibroid is found, tiny sand grains-sized round particles of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) are sent into the blood vessels (uterine arteries) that supply blood to the fibroid mass. The uterine arteries get blocked in the process.
As a result, the blocked artery cuts the blood flow to the tumour, causing it to shrink. To ensure that blood flow is completely blocked to the fibroids, contrast dye might be injected again. To complete the entire process, it takes around one to two hours.
