Jung Ryoon Son, Tae Won Sunwoo, Eun Hye Lee, Chang Soo An
Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumor of the female genital organ. Menorrhagia is the most common symptom associated with uterine fibroid. Since the first suggestion that embolization of uterine arteries might have a role in the management of fibroids by Ravina et al (France) in 1995,3 uterine artery embolization for management of fibroids has been performed actively in United states, United Kindom and Japan, and excellent therapeutic results have been reported. We have performed uterine artery embolization on patients with symptomatic fibroids or adenomyosis since August 1998. There have been few case reports of expelled fibroids out of vagina after uerine artery embolization, so we present a case in which successful embolization in woman with submucosal myoma resulted in a subsequent vaginal expulsion.
Key Words: Transarterial uterine embolization, Vaginal expulsion, Uterine fibroid
