SIR Foundation Registries

The SIR Foundation (previously CIRREF) and the Society of Interventional Radiology , in cooperation with the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI), established the Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) Fibroid Registry for Outcomes Data (FIBROID). The registry brought together a tremendous depth of scientific and technical resources through the collaborative efforts and support of a professional medical society, academic research organization, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), industry and consumers.

The purpose of the FIBROID Registry was to assess the procedure's durability, impact on fertility and quality-of-life, and to obtain data which would allow researchers to compare UAE to other fibroid therapies. The registry was open to all SIR members performing UAE.
