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. As such, this pioneering new book, which compares and contrasts conventional surgical treatments with the rapid emergence of uterine artery embolization as an alternative and less invasive procedure, looks set to provide a turning-point for the future treatment of this 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.
