Abstract

Two patients of an initial pilot study are reported. Both suffered from menorrhagia associated with uterine myomata. In each case bilateral uterine artery embolization under digital subtraction angiography was performed using polyvinyl alcohol particles. Patients' anaemia improved; follow-up ultrasound showed a reduction of both uterine volumes and size of myomata. No side-effects from the procedure were noted.
