OBJECTIVE. We aimed to assess the delayed effects of uterine artery embolization on ovarian arterial perfusion and function by performing ovarian sonography immediately before and after uterine artery embolization, as well as several months later. CONCLUSION. Although persistent loss of detectable arterial perfusion after uterine artery embolization occurs in some women, most patients reestablish arterial perfusion and do not develop symptoms of ovarian failure.
