TRANSRADIAL UFE WITH HYDROPEARL® MICROSPHERES
Uterine Fibroids account for 30% of the 600,000 women who undergo hysterectomies annually.1 Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a minimally-invasive alternative to hysterectomy or myomectomy.
TransRadial Artery Access (TRA) is proven to reduce associated bleeding and vascular complications. Using TRA in embolization procedures conveys proven benefits such as same day discharge opportunities, reduction in major bleeding complications, a readily accessible and easy to manage access site, and improved patient satisfaction.2-5
Terumo Interventional Systems is equipped to support your UFE procedures from access to embolization to closure.
HYDROPEARL MICROSPHERES FOR UTERINE FIBROID EMBOLIZATION
Keep your patients in mind as you embolize. The unique formulation of HydroPearl Microspheres was exclusively developed to offer controlled and targeted embolization. HydroPearl Microspheres are tightly calibrated and indicated for embolization of uterine fibroids. This precise calibration may allow more predictable and targeted embolization.6-8 Watch the video below to see how the precise engineering of HydroPearl can make a difference in your procedures:
