Laparoscopic myomectomy (Removal of fibroids)

The uterus sometimes developes noncancerous tumours in them called fibroids.When single,they can be removed succesfully through the laparoscope allowing for early discharge. The procedure of removing fibroids with the laparoscope is called laparoscopic myomectomy.

The procedure is done through 3 or 4 tiny holes in the abdomen, with the help of the laparoscope. In the picture, Laparoscopic myomectomy. The white tumour in the center is the fibroid. The edges of the wound have to be sutured endoscopically.

There are many studies in medical literature which have shown scientifically that even in multiple fibroids, laparoscopy is better than laparotomy.

However, in the author’s opinion, Laparoscopic myomectomy is best reserved for single or at the most 2 or three superficially located fibroids.
