Uterine artery embolization for symptomatic fibroid disease in a patient with Stanford type B aortic dissection: a case report

Authors: Eleanor Danek, Warren Clements.

ABSTRACT

Background: Patients with connective tissue disease are a potentially challenging population to treat via an endovascular approach. Treatments carry a risk of new or further dissection, including at the arteriotomy, and challenges navigating true or false lumen. Case presentation: The authors present a case of a patient with a recent aortic dissection in the setting of presumed connective tissue disease, with coincidental symptomatic uterine fibroids, successfully treated via uterine artery embolization. Conclusion: To the authorís knowledge, this case report is the first to describe successful uterine artery embolization in a patient with existing type b dissection. With proper technique and preparation, uterine artery embolization and other endovascular treatments remain a viable treatment option in this patient population.
