What is Laparoscopic Myomectomy?

During laparoscopic myomectomy, fibroids are removed from the uterus. This procedure is performed with a minimally invasive method that utilizes a laparoscope (a small video camera) and small instruments inserted through small incisions.

Also Known As:

·         Uterine fibroids removal

·         Laparoscopic surgery

Conditions Treated with Laparoscopic Myomectomy:

Laparoscopic myomectomy may be performed in cases of infertility, uterine polyps and uterine fibroids.

Non-Surgical or Other Surgical Alternatives to Laparoscopic Myomectomy:

Non-surgical alternatives to laparoscopic myomectomy include oral contraceptive pills (for fibroids), intrauterine contraceptive device and gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists. Abdominal and hysteroscopic myomectomy are surgical alternatives.

Anesthesia with Laparoscopic Myomectomy:

Laparoscopic myomectomy is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware during the procedure.

Potential Complications from Laparoscopic Myomectomy:

Possible risks following laparoscopic myomectomy include infection, bleeding, injury to the uterus and a negative reaction to the anesthesia. It is also possible to experience recurrence of uterine polyps or fibroids.

Prognosis after Laparoscopic Myomectomy:

The prognosis for a positive end result following laparoscopic myomectomy is good. However, younger women are more likely than menopausal women to experience a recurrence of fibroids.

Recovery from Laparoscopic Myomectomy:

Total recovery from laparoscopic myomectomy takes four to six weeks.
