Hysteroscopy – a thin lighted telescope is introduced into
the womb through the cervix. Abnormalities of the womb lining (endometrium) can
be diagnosed and treated using this method. These include abnormal growths
bulging in to the lining (polyps), disordered growth of the lining (endometrial
hyperplasia), fibroids, scarred womb, retrieving difficult-to-remove
contraceptive coils, as well as obtaining samples to assess for cancer of the
Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) – AKUH was the first
hospital in Kenya to offer this is a technique to control pressure, pain and
bleeding from uterine fibroids. Using a pencil-tip size cut in the artery at
the wrist or groin a slender flexible tube (catheter) is threaded through the
blood vessels to the fibroid's blood supply where small particles the size of
grains of sand are released to float downstream and block the small blood
vessels and deprive the fibroid of nutrients. The fibroids will then shrink
reducing the symptoms. Approximately 9 out of 10 women who undergo UFE report
their symptoms go away completely or reduced to a great extent.
Consultations with our gynaecologists are available from Monday to Saturday.
