Descriptive Information
Brief Title Patient Centered Results for Uterine Fibroids
Official Title Comparing Options for Management: Patient Centered Results for Uterine Fibroids
Brief Summary

The overall goal of this project is to better enable patients with uterine fibroids (UF) to make informed decisions about treatment options by leveraging the highest possible evidence of healthcare quality. The foundation of this project will be a multi-site, prospective registry of a diverse group of women who have undergone either medical or surgical treatment for UF.

Specifically, the investigators are interested in: comparing management options for symptom relief; comparing management options for preserving reproductive function; and comparing effectiveness among different subpopulations, including consideration of patient needs and preferences of treatment options.

Detailed Description

COMPARE UF will enroll approximately 10,000 subjects across 9 clinical enrolling centers in the US. We anticipate recruitment to last approximately 24 months. Sites will consent interested patients and have them complete a patient contact information form to be used to contact the patient for telephone interviews. Following informed consent, the site will collect clinical information and several patient-reported outcomes scales, including the Uterine Fibroid Symptom Quality of Life Questionnaire (UFS-QOL), the Menopausal Rating Scale, and the EQ-5D, a standardized measure of general health outcomes.

In year 01 of this study, among patients receiving a procedure to treat their UF, 1000 will be asked to provide two blood samples: the first at time of enrollment (before the procedure) and the second at 12 months after the procedure. Samples will be evaluated for ovarian reserve via a blood assay measurement of anti-mullerian hormone.

Additionally, for patients who have a procedure to treat their UF, they will have a routine clinic follow-up visit, sometime between 6 - 12 weeks post procedure. Additional clinical data will be collected at this time.

For patients who are treated medically, there will be no further study-related clinic visits. Follow-up will occur exclusively by telephone.

All consented patients will complete telephone interviews at approximately 12, 24, and 36 months following the initial procedure. It is anticipated that patients enrolled during the first study year will complete a maximum of three years of follow-up. However, if additional funds become available, the investigators plan to extend the follow-up of enrolled patients to five years.

Condition Fibroids, Uterine
  • Procedure: hysterectomy
    surgical removal of the uterus
  • Procedure: Uterine arterial embolization
    In uterine artery embolization, doctor uses a slender, flexible tube (catheter) to inject small particles (embolic agents) into the uterine arteries, which supply blood to your fibroids and uterus.the embolic agents are injected into these fibroid blood vessels. The goal is to block the fibroid vessels, starving the fibroids and causing them to shrink and die.
    Other Name: UAE
  • Procedure: myomectomy
    surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids, but does not remove uterus
  • Drug: Medical Therapy
    treatment of uterine fibroids with only medications, no procedure or surgery is used
  • Procedure: endometrial ablation
    surgical procedure that destroys uterine lining via a telescope placed inside the uterus
