uterine leiomyoma, iron defi ciency anemia, embolization of uterine vessels, iron hydroxide polymaltose complex


Anemia correction in the treatment of symptomatic uterine leiomyoma is an important step that signifi cantly improves the quality of life of women with this
pathology, thereby increasing the effi ciency of organ surgery, reducing the risk of complications.
Anemia treatment in the preoperative period contributes to a more favorable course of the postoperative period after embolization of uterine vessels, reduces the
severity and duration of the postembolization syndrome, accelerates the timing of rehabilitation, reduces the risk of infl ammatory complications.
When you selecting drugs for the treatment of iron defi ciency anemia should be preferred non-ionic iron drugssuch as the iron hydroxide polymaltose complex as the most safe and highly eff ective.
