Four out of five women who have uterine artery embolisation (UAE) for symptomatic adenomyosis will have no recurrence of pain and heavy bleeding for years postprocedure, a study shows.

Sydney doctors carried out extended follow-up of earlier research tracking 117 women (mean age 45)  who had UAE for symptomatic adenomyosis performed by one doctor operating at a single Sydney hospital between 2008 and 2015.
