AbstractThe objective of this prospective cohort study was to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy and safety of ultrasound-guided high-intensity focussed ultrasound (HIFU) in the treatment of uterine fibroids. Twenty premenopausal women with symptomatic fibroids underwent ultrasound-guided HIFU therapy. Twenty-two fibroids with a median baseline volume of 127.0 cm3 (range 18.5–481.2 cm3) were treated. The percentages fibroid volume reduction were 46.9 (range −8.8–73.1) at 1-month, 57.4 (−51.5–95.2) at 3-month, 60.1 (−18.9–97.8) at 6-month and 75.9 (−33.7–99.3) at 12-month, after treatment. The modified Uterine Fibroid Symptom and Quality of Life (UFS-QOL) scores were reduced by 40.7% (0–59.3%) at 3-month, 45.5% (0–70.4%) at 6-month and 44.9% (0–71.4%) at 12-month after treatment. Three patients required subsequent surgical interventions. No significant complications were encountered. Ultrasound-guided HIFU appears to be effective and safe for the treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids in selected patients.
