Abstract

In uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), knowledge of the potential ovarian-uterine anastomoses is important because they provide collateral blood flow that may result in the failure of the UFE or ovarian nontarget embolization. Uterine artery embolization is an alternative treatment of postpartum hemorrhage with 80% to 90% bleeding control and in which fertility can be preserved. Diagnosis of pelvic congestion syndrome on routine sonographic or computed tomography/magnetic resonance imaging is often missed. Fallopian tube recanalization allows couples to have unlimited attempts to conceive naturally and avoids the risks (multiple pregnancies, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome), and high cost of in vitro fertilization.
