Primary Completion Date: September 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Control Drug: Normal saline 0.9%
Normal saline 100mL(guess as 2㎍/mL):the infusion of 0.2㎍/kg/hr is started at 30 minutes before the procedure and the infusion dose is raised to 0.4㎍/kg/hr after completion of procedure
Active Comparator: Dexmedetomidine Drug: Dexmedetomidine
Dexmedetomidine(Dexmedetomidine 2 mL and normal saline 98 mL mixed -> 2㎍/mL) : the infusion of 0.2㎍/kg/hr is started at 30 minutes before the procedure and the infusion dose is raised to 0.4㎍/kg/hr after completion of procedure

Detailed Description:
Leiomyoma are the most common female reproductive tract tumors. Uterine artery embolization(UAE) is a minimally invasive treatment alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy. However, post-procedural pain control after UAE remains a major problem. Therefore, the aim of study is to evaluate the efficacy of dexmedetomidine in pain control after UAE.
