Laparoscopic Myomectomy

Laparoscopic Myomectomy

This outpatient procedure involves laparoscopic removal of uterine fibroids (muscle tumors in the uterine wall) with repair of the uterine wall. This outpatient approach is associated with less pain, fewer adhesions, and a quicker recovery than the open approach. The uterus is repaired with the same size sutures and strong closure as when done open. Other conditions such as endometriosis and adhesions can be treated at the same time.

Uterine fibroids can be deep within the uterine wall, known as Intramural ("mura" means wall) or so large that they go from inside the uterine cavity, through the uterine wall, to the outside of the uterus, known as Trans-mural. Uterine fibroids can be mostly on the outside of the uterus, known as Subserosal.

*** THERE IS CURRENTLY A CONTROVERSY WITH LAPAROSCOPIC MYOMECTOMY. IN THE SMALL CHANCE THAT A UTERINE FIBROID IS MALIGNANT, THE PROCESS OF MORCELLATION COULD SPREAD AND UPSTAGE THE UTERINE FIBROID MALIGNANCY.

THEREFORE, MORCELLATION OF UTERINE FIBROID TUMORS IS CURRENTLY NOT AN OPTION, AND A MINI-LAPAROTOMY INCISION IS REQUIRED TO REMOVE THE SPECIMEN.
