  Purpose

This study is to collect supplementary safety and technical effectiveness data of Philips MRI guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) in ablating uterine tissue associated with symptomatic fibroids in a 3T MRI scanner. The importance of this therapy is that it offers a non-invasive, uterine sparing procedure for the treatment of uterine fibroids in pre- and peri- menopausal women. MRI guided high intensity focused ultrasound uses ultrasound to heat and thermally ablate fibroid tissue. The MRI system identifies the ultrasound path and monitors heat rise in the fibroid tissue. The goal of the study is to collect supplementary 3T treatment safety and technical effectiveness data in a 1 month follow-up study. MRguided HIFU will be performed in patients who pass inclusion/exclusion criteria. Safety, quality of life, and imaging endpoints will be evaluated in all study patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of HIFU for treatment of the uterine fibroids as determined by adverse event reporting. [ Time Frame: Day of treatment, 24, 48, 72 hrs, 1 and 2 wks and 30 days after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety of HIFU for treatment of the uterine fibroids as determined by adverse event reporting.

  • Technical efficacy of HIFU for treatment of uterine fibroids as assessed by a change in the Symptom Severity Score [ Time Frame: Day of treatment, 30 days after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Technical efficacy of HIFU for treatment of uterine fibroids as assessed by a change in the Symptom Severity Score


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Quality of Life Scores [ Time Frame: 0, 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in Quality of Life Scores

  • Pain score [ Time Frame: 0, 24, 48, 72 hours and 1 and 2 weeks, and 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain scores before, during and after treatment: This endpoints will be recorded using a 10-point visual analog scale for pain 4-point scale for discomfort.

  • Timeframe before returning to daily activities [ Time Frame: 0, 24, 48, 72 hours and 1 and 2 weeks, and 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Timeframe before returning to daily activities

Study Completion Date: October 2011
Primary Completion Date: October 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treated leiomyomas
Philips MR-guided HIFU
Device: Philips MR-guided HIFU
HIFU is the use of focused ultrasound energy to penetrate through soft tissue and causes localized high temperatures (55°C to 70°C) for a few seconds within the target producing well defined regions of protein denaturation, irreversible cell damage, and coagulative necrosis.
