Myomectomy at best of Hospitals and Wellness centres

Overview

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.


Why it's done

Your doctor might recommend myomectomy for fibroids causing symptoms that are troublesome or interfere with your normal activities. If you need surgery, reasons to choose a myomectomy instead of a hysterectomy for uterine fibroids include:

  •  You plan to bear children
  • Your doctor suspects uterine fibroids might be interfering with your fertility
  • You want to keep your uterus


Operation procedure

In most cases, the surgeon performs a dilatation and curettage (D&C) to check for irregularities in the inner surface of the uterus. The kind of myomectomy performed depends on the type, size, number and location of the fibroids, but can include:


Abdominal myomectomy - the uterus is accessed via one large incision through the abdomen. Usually, a horizontal cut just on the bikini line is performed; in some cases, the incision may need to be made vertically in the midline of your abdomen. The uterus is cut, sometimes with a laser (which closes off blood vessels and reduces bleeding). The fibroids are then removed and the uterus, abdominal wall and skin are closed with sutures. This type of myomectomy is preferred for multiple or deeply rooted fibroids.

Laparoscopic myomectomy - Subserosal fibroids can often be removed via laparoscopic myomectomy. The surgeon makes a number of small incisions, which allow different instruments access to the uterus. Among these instruments is the laparoscope, which contains fibre-optic camera heads or surgical heads (or both). The fibroids are removed, and the small wounds sutured (sewn) closed.

Hysteroscopic myomectomy - the fibroids are removed via the dilated cervix, so no abdominal incisions are needed. The instrument is called a resectoscope, which is a hysteroscope fitted with a wire loop. The instrument is inserted through the cervix, and the wire loop slung over the fibroid. Electrical energy passes through the loop, which cuts the fibroid loose. The fibroid can then be removed through the vagina.


Recovery times for each procedure are:

Abdominal myomectomy: four to six weeks

Laparoscopic myomectomy: two to four weeks

Hysteroscopic myomectomy: two to three days
