Sarcoma post-embolization for presumed uterine fibroids

Uterine artery embolization has increasingly been used in the last decade as a conservative treatment approach for uterine fibroids.

It remains unclear whether a change in diagnostic work-up is required prior to uterine artery embolization in order to avoid missing sarcomas and delaying definitive treatment.
