In brief: No

It is very common for patients to have a uterine fibroid embolization.
In fact, it is now part of the treatment algorithm for a fibroid uterus according to the american society of ob/gyn. It is very effective for fibroid disease.

In brief: Not a rare procedure

Fibroid embolization is an under utilized procedure.
It is typically preformed by an interventional radiologist in consultation with a gynecologist. In the appropriate patient, there is the highest level of medical evidence to support the use for the treatment of symptomatic fibroids.

In brief: Ufe

No not rare. This is performed every day across the country.
The procedure is effective with good data behind it and allows women to be treated without surgery / hysterectomy which can be associated with morbidity.

In brief: No very effective!

An effective non-surgical way of getting rid of fibroids! (actually considered surgery, but not traditionally!).
