Myolysis is a strategy to uterine fibroids (noncancerous tumors in the inner or outer uterine lining) which involves using a laser to coagulate (clot) the circulation towards the fibroid, blocking further blood flow and causing the fibroid to shrink and finally die.
It is not unusual for women to develop uterine fibroids in the couple of years before menopause, as well as for these women, uterine fibroids are harmless and could go completely unnoticed. But some women experience pain or other complications as a result of uterine fibroids, which might include: dysmenorrhea (painful menses), dyspareunia (pain during sexual intercourse), digestive problems or urinary problems because of pressure on the digestive or urinary system, abdominal pain and bloating or swelling, lower back pain, and irregular or heavy menstrual bleeding. If these symptoms occur, they could warrant treatment of the fibroids with surgical procedures or other means.
Myolysis is one of the less invasive options for the treatment of uterine fibroids. It is generally suitable for smaller fibroids, but not as ideal for larger ones. The therapy isn't usually recommended for patients who hope to have children, because it may cause serious pregnancy complications; these can be dangerous to both mother and child, such as uterine scarring and infection.
During the treatment, someone is offered anesthesia and then a medical instrument known as a laparoscope is inserted into the uterus. Next, a laser or high frequency electrical current is run to the fibroid itself, which acts to chop from the blood supply towards the fibroid without having done the same to the surrounding tissue. Once the circulation towards the fibroid is cut off, the fibroid ceases growing, shrinks, and finally dies.
Another method of uterine fibroid treatment, called cryomyolysis, relies on a similar technique, but rather than a laser or electrical current, liquid nitrogen can be used to freeze the tissue. This causes it to stop growing and shrink to some less disruptive size.
Following the treatment, that takes around an hour, patients are kept for observation for a few hours, and then released within 24 hours. Following the procedure, patients can experience pain, tenderness or cramping within the abdominal area. For some, it will be intense enough to require pain medication. Most sufferers are advised to take time off from work and normal activities for a few days following the procedure.
