Special Issue Introduction

Uterine fibroids (UFs) are the most common benign solid tumors in the female reproductive tract, which can cause severe menstrual bleeding and may affect fertility. It seriously affects the quality of life, work efficiency and sex life. The current management strategies mainly involve surgical intervention, but the choice of treatment depends on the age of the patient and the desire to maintain fertility or avoid "radical" surgery. Hysteroscopy and ultrasound hysterography can be used to assess the characteristics of uterine fibroids. Hormone therapy has been widely used to treat symptoms caused by uterine fibroids. However, these treatments are not curative, and symptoms usually recur after the treatments stop. Alternatively, these diseases can be treated with minimally invasive surgical techniques.
