Poster Information
Abstract: A local departmental audit was carried out at the Radiology department in Kent & Canterbury Hospital that showed the provision of Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (for symptomatic uterine leiomyomas) to be well within the standards recommended by the Royal College Radiologists, Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and NICE.[1-6] 24 consecutive patients were audited over a 10 month period. There was 100% technical success with no major complications. All pre- and post-procedural targets were met and patients were exposed to radiation levels well below the standard. This service provision can be improved by better follow-up and online digitalsation of follow-up appointments and letters.Summary: Assessing the departmental provision of Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (UFE) References: Gupta JK, Sinha A, Lumsden MA, Hickey M. Uterine artery embolization for symptomatic uterine fibroids. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2014, Issue 12.
