This Video demonstrates Laparoscopic Myomectomy Lateral Wall Fibroid Uterus performed by Dr. R.K. Mishra at World Laparoscopy Hospital. Myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids — also called leiomyomas. These common noncancerous growths appear in the uterus. Uterine fibroids usually develop during childbearing years, but they can occur at any age. The surgeon's goal during myomectomy is to take out symptom-causing fibroids and reconstruct the uterus. Unlike a hysterectomy, which removes your entire uterus, a myomectomy removes only the fibroids and leaves your uterus. Women who undergo myomectomy report improvement in fibroid symptoms, including decreased heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pressure. Laparoscopy was performed with the patient in the lithotomy position by using video monitoring equipment. The telescope was inserted subumbilically and one 6 mm port was placed suprapubically and medially. Two 5-mm ports were placed in the lower quadrants at the lateral edge of the rectus abdominis muscle.
