The purpose of this study is to demonstrate comparability between Contour SE™ Microspheres and Embosphere® Microspheres for achieving post UFE fibroid devascularization in women with symptomatic uterine fibroids.
The purpose of this prospective randomized single-center study is to demonstrate comparability using Contour SE™ Microspheres (700-900µ and 900-1200µ) using a near stasis endpoint and Embosphere® Microspheres (500-700µ) using a "prune tree" endpoint for achieving post UFE fibroid devascularization in women with symptomatic uterine fibroids. The study will demonstrate (with the use of contrast enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at baseline and 24-hours post embolization) that uterine fibroids can successfully be devascularized using the embolization protocols. Contrast enhanced MRI will be performed at baseline, 24-hours, and 3-months post UFE. The subjects will be followed through 12-months post UFE and change from baseline in symptom severity (Quality of Life (QoL) Questionnaire) will be assessed at 3 months and 12 months.

The use of embolizing agents to block the arterial blood supply to parts or all of the UTERUS. The procedures are done to control bleeding or to cause destruction of uterine tissues.
Small uniformly-sized spherical particles, of micrometer dimensions, frequently labeled with radioisotopes or various reagents acting as tags or markers.
A biocompatible, hydrophilic, inert gel that is permeable to tissue fluids. It is used as an embedding medium for microscopy, as a coating for implants and prostheses, for contact lenses, as microspheres in adsorption research, etc.
Iron (II,III) oxide (Fe3O4). It is a black ore of IRON that forms opaque crystals and exerts strong magnetism. The NANOPARTICLES; and MICROSPHERES of its mineral form, magnetite, have many biomedical applications.
A benign tumor derived from smooth muscle tissue, also known as a fibroid tumor. They rarely occur outside of the UTERUS and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT but can occur in the SKIN and SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE, probably arising from the smooth muscle of small blood vessels in these tissues.
