Uterine fibroids are the commonest benign tumors of the uterus and pelvis, and are the single most common cause of surgery in women apart from childbirth. Originally published in 2003, this pioneering book compares and contrasts conventional surgical treatments with the rapid emergence of uterine artery embolization as an alternative and less invasive procedure, and is of major importance in relation to the treatment of the condition. A host of international experts from gynecology and interventional radiology have contributed chapters, including one by Dr Jacques Ravina, the pioneer of uterine artery embolization. Although the main focus is on embolization, the book does also give a very comprehensive account of the epidemiology, pathology, diagnosis and management of uterine fibroids, and of conventional treatments such as hysterectomy and myomectomy. This all-inclusive approach makes the book suitable for gynecologists, radiologists, and for all trainees and residents looking after patients with uterine fibroids.

"...excellent..." The Journal of American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists
"This is excellent both as a general text and also as a quick reference on the subject of uterine fibroids for any clinician. It is the only general book that I've seen which provides detailed information regarding UFE." Doody's Review Service
