Abstract

Laparoscopic bipolar coagulation of uterine vessels was performed in three women with symptomatic myomas who required conventional surgical treatment. Uterine size and dominant myoma size were assessed by ultrasonography before and after surgery. Both uterine arteries, as well as anastomosis zone of uterine arteries with ovarian arteries, were occluded in all three women. Surgery was uneventful, and patients were hospitalized for only 2 days. All women experienced improvement in symptoms with no complications. Postoperative ultrasound showed progressive reduction in size of the dominant myoma. A larger series and longer follow-up are required to evaluate long-term effects and to identify appropriate candidates.
