Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Laparoscopic myomectomy is an alternative to the abdominal approach, with fewer complications, shorter hospital stay, and less disability [1, 2]. The laparoscopic route for performing myomectomy has been proven feasible in numerous studies. With the advent of better insufflators, light sources, cameras, improvement in suturing instrumentation and techniques, as well as the availability of electronic morcellators, the rate of laparoscopic myomectomy has increased in the past decade after being limited by the technical and surgical skill challenges it presented.
