Other treatments that doctors can offer to patients are minimally invasive procedures, such as UFE (Uterine fibroid embolization) and UAE (Uterine artery embolization), explains Dr. Adam Geronemus, Associate Director of the Fibroid Center at South Miami Hospital. There are other treatments like surgical options: endometrial ablation, hysteroscopy and laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy and hysterectomy, he describes.
A heavy menstrual bleeding that could cause large blood clots (Metro raja) is the most common symptom of uterine fibroids. Big pain, pressure in the pelvis, infertility or miscarriage are other symptoms according to Dr. Adam Geronemus, Associate Director of the Fibroid Center at South Miami HospitalÂ´s explanation. Dr. James Benenati, Director of the Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory at Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute says itÂ´s important to notice that fibroids are present for a long time, but the symptoms develop gradually.
Dr. Adam Geronemus, Vascular and Interventional Radiologist at Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, explains varicocele is dilatation or dilated veins within the scrotum. "When the valves don't function, if the blood flows the wrong way, the veins become dilated. It is a tangle in the scrotum," he says. Dr. James Benenati, Director of Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory at Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, points out the veins generally work passively by allowing gravity to push the blood back towards the heart, but when those valves malfunction, the blood flows up and it flows back down.
Dr. Adam Geronemus, Associate Director of the Fibroid Center at South Miami Hospital, says kyphosis is when your spine angles change and you are actually hunched over and looking down. "And the main cause of kyphosis happens in the thoracolumbar junction which is from the eleventh thoracic spine to about the second lumbar vertebral body." He also explains if you have a compression that causes wedging where the anterior portion of this vertebral body is lower than the posterior portion, you lose height.
When the hormones change with menopause, fibroids generally tend to retract and regress in size and symptoms diminish significantly, says Dr. James Benenati, Director of the Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory at Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute. Dr. Adam Geronemus, Associate Director of the Fibroid Center at South Miami Hospital advises women in perimenopause to try to wait and control fibroids regularly.
