Laparoscopic Myomectomy and Salpingectomy
11 months ago
Recently there is an increasing trend for minimal access surgery for myomas. Laparoscopic myomectomy has provided an alternative to laparotomy for subserosa and intramural myomas. It is associated with faster postoperative recovery and potentially less postoperative adhesions. Main concerns are however subsequent fertility, reproductive outcome and long-term recurrence. Other alternatives are laparoscopic assisted myomectomy, laparoscopic ultraminilaparotomic embolised myomectomy, laparoscopically assisted transvaginal myomectomy, myolysis and cryosurgery. This laparoscopic myomectomy and salpingectomy is performed by Dr. R.K. Mishra at World Laparoscopy Hospital. The idea of this review is to analyse recent techniques which are used to treat uterine myomas. Recent evidence favours safety and reliability of laparoscopic myomectomy. Prospective randomised controlled trials comparing laparoscopic myomectomy with laparotomy myomectomy will clarify the status further.
