The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on Ultrasound-guided high-intensity transcutaneous focused ultrasound for symptomatic uterine fibroids in July 2019. In accordance with the Interventional Procedures Programme process guide, guidance on procedures with special arrangements are reviewed 3 years after publication and the procedure is reassessed if important new evidence is available. The guidance was considered for reassessment in July 2022 and it was concluded that NICE will not be updating this guidance at this stage. However, if you believe there is new evidence which should warrant a review of our guidance, please contact us via the email address below.
