The minute methodical details and technical aspects of uterine arteries embolization, crucial for successful intervention, are reviewed in this article. The text provides detailed descriptions of roentgen anatomy of the internal iliac arteries, different variants of blood circulation in uterus and ovaries and various types of anastomozes between uterine and ovarian arteries. The techniques indispensable for successful embolization of uterine arteries in complex anatomic cases and in peculiar ways of uterine arteries formation are thoroughly described.
