Uterine fibroids are also known by the following names:

Uterine fibroid embolization is a non-invasive treatment that targets uterine fibroids by blocking their blood supply. This treatment is usually used as an alternative therapy for hysterectomy and myomectomy. In this procedure, a catheter is inserted in the leg or wrist through a blood vessel guided by fluoroscopic images. Tiny particles are then injected into the fibroids which gradually shrink them.
