Laparoscopic Myomectomy surgery
A laparoscopic myomectomy surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the cancerous growths from the uterus. This type of surgery is advantageous as compared to the conventional abdominoplasty as it requires less number and smaller size of incisions.
How Laparoscopic Myomectomy surgery works?
A laparoscopic myomectomy surgery is an advantageous surgery that is used to remove uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are certain non-cancerous growths that are seen growing inside most women’s uterus during childbearing years. These uterine fibroids can be seen at any age before a woman reaches menopause.
A myomectomy aims to remove the fibroids from the uterus as well as reconstruct it in case of any damage to it due to abnormal tissue growth (fibroids). This surgical procedure does not remove the uterus as is seen after a hysterectomy but leaves it intact.
A laparoscopic myomectomy works to relieve symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure, etc caused due to abnormal fibroids in the uterus.
Laparoscopic Myomectomy surgery procedure
A laparoscopic myomectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is used to remove uterine fibroid growth from the uterus of a woman. This surgical method uses a laparoscope (thin and flexible tube-like apparatus) to perform the removal of fibroids.
The surgeon will administer general anesthesia to you in order to avoid any kind of discomfort to you. Very small (keyhole) incisions are made in the abdomen (navel-level) to insert the laparoscope. This laparoscope has a cold light-source and a video camera attached to its end that allows the surgeon to view the interior of the uterus and the surrounding tissue to determine the size, number and locations of the fibroids. The surgeon will use other keyhole incisions below the pubic hairline to insert similar tubes attached with surgical instruments to remove the fibroids.
After the removal of fibroids is completed the surgeon will use specialized sutures to seal the opening in the uterus. This surgery is highly successful when performed by a well-trained and extensively experienced surgeon. This laparoscopic method of uterine fibroid removal is ideal when the fibroids are seen attached with a stalk outside the uterus or if the fibroids are close the wall of the uterus.
Who is a candidate for a Laparoscopic Myomectomy Surgery?
Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths seen in the tissue of the walls of the uterus in the form of fibrous growths. These can be single and small or they can be larger in size and multiple in numbers. Certain fibroids are seen attached to a clear stalk (pedunculated fibroids) with the uterus wall or they could be smaller in size and attached close to the wall tissue of the uterus.
Smaller sized fibroids are mostly harmless and do not show any visible symptoms however larger-sized fibroids at times cause severe signs that indicate to development of other disorders. These fibroids cause certain disorders and give rise to distinct symptoms, such as:
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Extended menstrual periods
- Pelvic pain/pressure
- Frequent urination
- Urine difficulty
- Leg pain
If you have not acquired menopause and are in your child-bearing years you may face the above symptoms. In such a case it is advisable to seek an opinion regarding diagnosis of uterine fibroids from an experienced doctor or physician.
