Successful use of magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery to relieve symptoms in a patient with symptomatic focal adenomyosis.

OBJECTIVE: To report a successful treatment of symptomatic adenomyosis using magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS).

DESIGN: Case study.

SETTING: General hospital.

PATIENT(S): A 47-year-old premenopausal woman with focal symptomatic adenomyosis.

INTERVENTION(S): MRgFUS.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Score on the Uterine Fibroids Symptoms Quality of Life (UFS-QOL) questionnaire and the degree of menstrual pain.

RESULT(S): Uterine Fibroids Symptoms reduced from 53 to 28 and the degree of menstrual pain reduced from 10 to 5.

CONCLUSION(S): For adenomyosis patients who wish to preserve their uterus, MRgFUS may be a promising alternative to hysterectomy. Additional studies of the safety and efficacy of MRgFUS in this indication should be conducted.
