Fibroid Removal (Uterine myomectomy) Procedure
Myomectomy is the surgical removal of uterine fibroids while preserving the uterus. Uterine fibroids (leiomyofibromas) are benign tumors of the uterine muscle. Fibroids are classified by location in the uterus: those that grow into the uterine cavity are called submucous fibroids, those located in the uterine wall are called mural fibroids, and those that protrude outside the uterine wall are called subserous fibroids.
Several approaches are available for myomectomy, including abdominal myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy, and myomectomy performed through the woman's cervical canal, which does not involve abdominal incisions (hysteroscopic myomectomy).
