Hysteroscopic myomectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of uterine fibroids (also known as myomas) using a hysteroscope. Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in the muscular wall of the uterus.
During the procedure, a hysteroscope, which is a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light attached to the end, is inserted through the vagina and cervix and into the uterus. The surgeon then uses specialized instruments to remove the fibroids from the uterine lining.
Hysteroscopic myomectomy is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia, and patients can usually go home the same day. Recovery time is usually short, with most women able to resume normal activities within a few days.
The procedure is often used to treat symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, or infertility, which can be caused by uterine fibroids. It is considered a safe and effective treatment, with a high success rate in reducing or eliminating symptoms.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with hysteroscopic myomectomy, such as bleeding, infection, or injury to the uterus or surrounding organs.
