Heavy Bleeding, Bloated Stomach, Cramps, and More

Women with unusual menstrual symptoms may suffer from more serious vascular conditions in their pelvic area. These women are often told that a hysterectomy is their only solution, but at Connecticut Image Guided Surgery, we have uterus-sparing options that may work better for you. Our minimally invasive treatments have faster recovery times and more optimal lifestyle impacts.

Uterine Fibroid EmbolizationUterine Fibroid Embolization

Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive treatment that safely and effectively shrinks fibroids and eliminates the unpleasant symptoms they cause - all without the need for surgery. You can also avoid an overnight stay in the hospital. At Connecticut Image Guided Surgery, UFEs are performed on an outpatient basis and offer a faster recovery time than more invasive hysterectomies and myomectomies.

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - Pelvic RefluxPelvic Congestion Syndrome / Pelvic Reflux

Pelvic congestion syndrome, or pelvic reflux, is associated with the presence of ovarian and pelvic varicose veins. As with varicose veins in the legs, the valves in the veins that help return blood to the heart become weakened and don't close properly. This allows blood to flow backwards and pool in the vein, causing pressure and making the veins bulge. In the pelvis, varicose veins can cause pain and affect the uterus, ovaries, and vulva. Up to 15 percent of women, generally between the ages of 20 and 50, have varicose veins in the pelvis, although not all experience symptoms.

Embolization is the treatment of choice for pelvic reflux. By blocking the blood flow to these abnormal veins, venous circulation is restored to the normal veins and symptoms improve.

Fallopian Tube RecanalizationFallopian Tube Recanalization

This nonsurgical procedure treats blockages in the fallopian tubes using minimally invasive techniques. No needles or incisions are required during the procedure. A speculum is placed into the vagina, and a small plastic tube (catheter) is passed through the cervix and into the uterus. To determine whether there is a blockage, an X-ray test called a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is performed, using a liquid contrast agent injected through the catheter. If a blockage is found, it can be opened right then and there by threading a smaller catheter through the first catheter into the fallopian tube.
