“Laparoscopic myomectomy - the limits of laparoscopic management”
John Einarsson, Harvard Medical School, Boston (USA)
Laparoscopic myomectomy presents advantages vs abdominal myomectomy: quicker recovery, shorter hospital stay, decreased blood loss, decreased adhesion formation and comparable pregnancy rate. For this reason, it is the surgical option of choice for women who want to retain their options for future fertility, but there some limits that we must take into account such as size, number, location, the goal of surgery and blood loss.
