Heaviest Fibroid of the World Removed by Laparoscopic Surgery
GURUGRAM, HARYANA, INDIA, May 22, 2019. Dr. R.K. Mishra of World Laparoscopy Hospital has created a World Record. First time in the World 3.5 Kg Fibroid, Ovarian Cyst, Gallbladder and Appendix removed by Laparoscopy in the Same Patient. The patient has torsion of Myoma giving severe pain, She had multiple episodes of appendicitis in the past. She had Cholelithiasis and one para ovarian cyst. All were removed by laparoscopy. The surgery took 6-hour time. Only 4 ports were used to remove all these pathologies. She was also having hydronephrosis due to the pressure of fibroid on the ureter.
Uterine leiomyomas are the most common benign neoplasms of the female reproductive tract. Laparoscopic Myomectomy is the preferred surgical treatment in reproductive-aged women who desire to retain their fertility. The use of a laparoscopic approach for large myomas is still controversial because difficulty in removing it and inability to suture the uterus by many gynecologists, although there are several compelling reasons for its use. The laparoscopic removal of giant uterine myomas is rare, and only a few cases have been published in the literature.
Laparoscopic myomectomy offers many advantages compared with abdominal myomectomy. Although the use of a laparoscopic approach to treat very large myomas is controversial and technically demanding, we successfully performed a laparoscopic myomectomy in a patient with a giant myoma of 3.5 kg weight. This case confirms the efficiency, reliability, and safety of a minimally invasive surgical approach to treating a giant uterine myoma. Laparoscopic myomectomy can be performed by experienced surgeons regardless of the size of the myoma.
