Abstract

Uterine fibroids cause heavy and prolonged bleeding, pain, pressure symptoms and subfertility but are mostly benign. The traditional method of treatment has been surgery as long term medical therapies have not shown to be effective. Uterine artery embolization (UAE - complete occlusion of both the uterine arteries with particulate emboli) has been reported to be an effective and safe alternative in the treatment of menorrhagia and other fibroid-related symptoms in women not desiring future fertility, but thus far this evidence is based on case controlled studies and case reports.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 February 2006.
All research outputs
#2,525,833
of 4,757,664 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#6,117
of 7,405 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#26,158
of 55,024 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#24
of 29 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,757,664 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,405 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 12.3. This one is in the 10th percentile – i.e., 10% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 55,024 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 29 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 6th percentile – i.e., 6% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
