The uterine silhouette is a settling place for different malformations and pathological processes, some of which can require surgical treatment, may it be via the abdomen (laparotomy, laparoscopy) or the vagina (hysteroscopy, laparoscopy). In certain opportunities one can also turn to endovascular treatment, as is the case of the chemoembolization of uterine myomas.
