[DJR-138 1.0 CE] Intraprocedural Superior Hypogastric Nerve Block Allows Same-Day Discharge following Uterine Artery Embolization

In a single-arm, nonrandomized, retrospective case-control study, 39 patients (mean age, 44 y) who underwent elective outpatient uterine artery embolization (UAE) with the use of superior hypogastric nerve block (SNHB) for pain control over a period of 3 years were identified. Technical success of SNHB was 87%. Of the 34 patients who received SNHB, 97% did not need a patient-controlled analgesia pump. The median opioid requirement for the 17 patients who needed opioid agents was 7.5 morphine milligram equivalents (interquartile range [IQR], 10). The median length of stay was 2.2 hours (IQR, 1.7 h). SHNB offers a safe and effective intervention that significantly reduces pain and the need for opiate agents and allows same-day discharge after UAE.
