The diagnosis of a uterine myoma size and location can be very precise when a 3D sonograph and knowledge are available. The majority of fibroids are asymptomatic, and expectant management is recommended. In young patients, fibroids cause infertility and in middle-aged women, abnormal uterine bleedings. Laparoscopic myomectomy is the preferred way of surgery for IM and SS fibroids, versus hysteroscopy for SM fibroids. In both cases, the size, number of fibroids and the surgeon's experience determine the limitations of the MIGS...

A 63-year-old woman presented with abnormal vaginal bleeding. Her disease history was significant, and included advanced lung adenocarcinoma with a deletion mutation in exon 19 of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene, which was managed by concurrent chemoradiotherapy, followed by molecular targeted therapy with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) for a two-year period. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography showed the enlargement of a previously suspicious myoma node, with peripheral enhancement. Hemorrhagic necrosis was also observed on magnetic resonance imaging...

PURPOSE: Until now there are no systematic studies about the long-term course of myoma growth. Therefore, the aims of the present study were: (1) ultrasound monitoring of the natural course of growth of uterine leiomyomas; (2) assessment of whether the growth of myomas depends on the age of the patients, the location, or the initial size (possible co-factors/predictor criteria for increase of growth); influence of oral contraceptives (OC). METHODS: Patient records (2010-May 2016) were retrospectively and systematically evaluated in regards to their growth and clinical course...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate a minimal invasive surgical (MIS) technique for curative excision of extensive secondary disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis (DPL). SETTING: In MIS, the myoma has to be divided into small fragments for piecemeal retrieval through a small incision [1], a widely used technique is morcellation (confined or unconfined) [2]. Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis (DPL) is a rare sequel following laparoscopic morcellation. Since this entity is rarely reported, this video demonstrates laparoscopic technique for safe removal of DPL post laparoscopic myomectomy and morcellation...

Cervical myomas are rare and account for <1% of uterine leiomyomas. Clinical complications include bulk-related symptoms of pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding and infertility. While hysterectomies may be readily performed for postmenopausal women; the management of women with cervical myomas of childbearing age remains a challenge.Traditionally described fertility-preserving procedures such as myomectomy, endometrial ablation or myolysis may only be applied to leiomyomas within the uterine corpus. Little is known about the surgical management of its cervical counterpart...

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive uterine fibroid treatment option for patients who want to preserve fertility. However, according to several reports regarding ablation of solid tumors by HIFU, there are rare complications in patients with uterine leiomyomas, and overall data are still insufficient. Here, we report rare and major complications of HIFU, such as delayed intestinal perforation, uterine perforation with recto-uterine fistula, and osteomyelitis 29 days after the HIFU procedure to treat multiple myomas...

Ulipristal acetate (UPA) has been recognized as an alternative strategy to surgery in the management of symptomatic women with uterine fibroids. We present a case report on a woman with hereditary fibrinogen deficiency exclusively treated with UPA for myoma-related menorrhagia and abdominal pain, who subsequently underwent a hysterectomy because of clinical worsening. A FIGO IB uterine leiomyosarcoma was found among multiple myomas. A review of the literature found two other cases of uterine leiomyosarcoma in patients treated with UPA: clinical data are reported...

Pulmonary benign metastasizing leiomyoma (PBML) is a rare disease entity that usually occurs in females of reproductive age with a previous history of uterine myoma. It is typically characterized by multiple pulmonary tumors consisting of benign leiomyoma cells. In the present study, two cases of PBML are discussed. The patient in each case underwent 2-deoxy-2-(fluorine-18)-fluoro-D-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18-FDG-PET/CT) scans. One patient demonstrated a lack of 18-FDG uptake and a quiescent clinical course...

The purpose of this systematic review is to evaluate if uterine myomas impact the likelihood of pregnancy and pregnancy loss, and if myomectomy influences pregnancy outcomes in asymptomatic women. There is insufficient evidence to conclude that the presence of myomas reduces the likelihood of achieving pregnancy. However, there is fair evidence that myomectomy (open or laparoscopic) for cavity-distorting myomas (intramural or intramural with a submucosal component) improves pregnancy rates and reduces the risk of early pregnancy loss...
