Not sure if you've read any of my posts regarding the line of work I'm in so bear with me if you've heard this before
I work in a division of radiology that performs non-surgical interventions with imaging guidance. We are very similar to a cardiac cath lab only we image all the other blood vessels in the body as well as interventions such as arterial stenting, angioplasty, abscess drainage,etc....... Ok, to my point....One procedure that we've been performing more of lately are Uterine Fibroid Embolizations(UFE). When women are referred to our radiologists with heavy bleeding from fibroids, the procedure is performed by an arterial puncture to the femoral artery.(All this being done with local and consious sedation) A small catheter is guided through this artery into the uterine artery that is supplying the fibroid. Once the feeder artery is selected, embolization particles are injected into the vessel shutting the blood supply to the fibroid. Eventually, with no blood supply, the fibroid shrinks and stops bleeding. The catheter is then removed and the patient usually stays overnight for pain control due to the cramping from the fibroid shrinking. No incisions are made, it is done through a needle puncture and you can walk within 4 hours of the procedure end.
I will send you a link soon.
Hope this option helps with some decision making.
