ACOG recommends Uterine Fibroid Embolization as an alternative to hysterectomy.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has recommended uterine artery embolization #UFE as an alternative to hysterectomy in the management of leiomyomas (fibroid tumors) since 2008.  The announcement should be significant news considering that each year nearly 250,000 women in the U.S. undergo hysterectomy to treat their fibroids.
