PREVIEW: Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Thursday, March 25, at 4:00PM EDT -- Watch as an interventional radiologist at Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute, performs a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). The webcast will be moderated by another interventional radiologist to enable audience participation. A live Spanish version of the webcast will also be available.

During a UFE, the patient is sedated, but awake. To perform the procedure, an interventional radiologist makes a small incision that doesn't require stitches in the patient's upper thigh and inserts a catheter into her femoral artery. Using an X-ray image to "see," the radiologist guides the catheter to the uterus. Next, the radiologist injects small particles into the artery feeding the fibroid. These particles block blood flow to the fibroid, causing it to shrink.
