Uterine fibroids are benign neoplasms that can cause distressing symptoms in women during their reproductive age. They are often associated with menorrhagia that can determine anemia or bulk-related symptoms. Different treatment options are available: medical therapy has the goal to treat related symptoms, while semi-invasive or non-invasive uterus-sparing procedures aim to treat symptoms and eventually to determine a reduction in fibroids size. In this review we illustrate the current semi-invasive and totally non-invasive most frequently used uterus sparing procedures available. A review of the literature along with personal experience will offer the readers a panoramic view of these up-to-date treatments to be considered as different possibilities to treat women affected by uterine fibroids looking for uterus conserving non-surgical approach.
