Abstract

As intervention techniques have been developed recently, minimal invasive treatment for uterine myoma using uterine artery embolization is receiving attention increasingly. Uterine rupture occurs rarely, but once it occurs, it may cause fatal results in both mother and fetus. Although the relationship between uterine artery embolization for treatment of uterine myoma and uterine rupture has not been clearly revealed yet, a case implying that the embolization for treatment of uterine myoma can be a risk factor of uterine rupture like previous caesarian delivery or myomectomy.
