Uterine anteversion after uterine fibroid embolization
The present case report has been published in the journal Radiology Case Reports. The authors describe a case of uterine orientation change from retroversion to anteversion presenting 6 months after uterine fibroid embolization.

Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) has been proven effective in treating symptomatic uterine fibroids for appropriately selected patients as an alternative option to surgical approaches. The most common adult uterine position is anteverted followed by a retroverted uterus which can be found in roughly 15%-20% of normal adult females.

Forty-six-year-old nulliparous female, status post prior myomectomy for dysfunctional uterine bleeding presented to our multidisciplinary uterine fibroid clinic with menometrorrhagia. Patient's preprocedural MRI revealed multiple intramural fibroids within an overall enlarged retroverted uterus measuring 9 cm × 6.3 cm × 5 cm.

The largest fibroid which we termed the index fibroid was located within the uterine fundus and measured 2.3 cm × 2.1 cm × 2 cm. The second largest fibroid was located anteriorly and measured 1.8 cm × 1.7 cm × 1.5 cm. Both fibroids demonstrated post contrast isoenhancement compared to the background myometrium. Other much smaller intramural fibroids we also noted.
