Abstract

Objective: To determine the optimal surgical approach when patients are treated with laparoscopic uterine vessel occlusion (LUVO) combined with myomectomy in the management of women with symptomatic uterine fibroids. Design: An observational study. Setting: Medical centers. Patient(s): One hundred thirty-one patients with symptomatic myomas underwent LUVO plus laparoscopic myomectomy (LM; LUVO+LM) (n = 49) or LUVO plus ultra-mini laparotomy UMLT-M (LUVO+UMLT-M) (n = 82). Intervention(s): Myomectomy through laparoscopy or UMLT access. Main Outcome Measure(s): The outcome was measured by comparing surgical techniques, and 3-year follow-up, including symptom control and reintervention (hysterectomy or myomectomy), in both groups. Result(s): General characteristics of the patients were similar in both groups, except the number of myomas. Surgical techniques seemed to be easier in the LUVO+UMLT-M group than in LUVO+LM group, because of less operation time (56.1 ± 16.9 minutes vs. 73.4 ± 26.9 minutes; P=.009) and a higher success rate (100% vs. 91.8%; P=.018). There were no differences in the 3-year follow-up of the therapeutic outcomes of the LUVO+UMLT-M and LUVO+LM groups, with low reintervention rates (1.2% vs. 0) and good symptom control rates in both groups. Conclusion(s): The LUVO+LM, either through laparoscopy or UMLT, was acceptable in the management of symptomatic uterine fibroids. However, the LUVO+UMLT-M technique might be more feasible, as it required less operative time and had a higher success rate.
