Minimally invasive treatment options for uterine fibroids
Goldberg J, Bromberg J, Srinivasan S

Program Audience Primary care physicians Educational Needs Addressed Although standard treatment of uterine fibroids has been surgical hysterectomy, an increasing number of reports indicate that uterine artery embolization with preservation of the uterus is a promising alternative. As this procedure has become increasingly popular, it is important that physicians be familiar with this procedure as well as other alternative, minimally invasive treatment options. Knowledge of the safety, efficacy, and techniques associated with these procedures and the factors that may play a role in a woman’s treatment decision will allow primary care physicians to help their patients make the treatment decision that is best for them. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe the approach to evaluation of a patient with symptoms of uterine fibroids 2. Describe minimally invasive treatment options for symptomatic fibroids, including their risks and benefits 3. Describe indications and contraindications for uterine artery embolization 4. Understand the factors that may influence a woman’s choice of treatment
