Hysteroscopic Myomectomy

Myomectomy is surgery to remove uterine fibroids. Hysteroscopic myomectomy is a minimally invasive approach to myomectomy, widely used nowadays for uterine fibroids removal.

Uterine fibroids

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tissue growths that develop inside the uterus. There are three types of fibroids.

Intramural fibroids:

Grow within the uterus’ muscular wall

Submucosal fibroids:

Grow just beneath the uterine lining

Subserosal fibroids:

Grow on the uterus’ outer wall

Myomectomy leaves the uterus intact, so people can still become pregnant after the procedure.

About hysteroscopic myomectomy

Hysterectomy myomectomy, which is also called hysteroscopic resection surgery of fibroids, is performed by surgeons for fibroids removal by inserting a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted, flexible tube, into the uterine cavity through the vagina or cervix.

Hysteroscopic resection of fibroids is performed for submucosal fibroids removal in which the fibroid bulges into the uterine cavity. Ideally, women with submucosal fibroids are eligible for this type of myomectomy. 

This method cannot be used to remove fibroids that are inside the uterine wall. Hysteroscopic myomectomy is typically an outpatient procedure. After observing for 4-5 hours in the recovery room, patients are sent home. Most people simply need a few days to recover. Following the surgery, the skin has no visible scars.

When is it recommended?

The most prevalent reasons for hysteroscopic myomectomy in Dubai are abnormal uterine bleeding and reproductive difficulties. While hysteroscopic myomectomy in Dubai by Dr Pranjali Singh has been proven to be safe and successful in the treatment of menstrual problems, in some cases, may not be recommended.

Procedure of hysteroscopic myomectomy in Dubai

Hysteroscopic excision of fibroids involves inserting a tiny fiber-optic instrument called a hysteroscope through the cervix to see the uterus from the inside.

Hysteroscopes are so narrow that they may pass through the cervix with little or no dilatation. Since the instruments are passed through the cervix, no abdominal incisions are required. 

A hysteroscope employs high-frequency electrical current to cut or coagulate tissue and is then inserted to remove the fibroids. The fibroid is finally removed through the cervix.

This procedure is done on an outpatient basis under general anaesthesia, which takes about 30 – 60 minutes precisely depending on the size & number of submucous fibroids and the expertise of the surgeon.

Potential benefits of hysteroscopic myomectomy in Dubai

Submucosal fibroids are found to have strong association with lower pregnancy rates through decreased implantation. Also, submucosal fibroids can distort the uterine cavity causing implantation and fetal growth difficulties and even miscarriages. 

The primary benefit of hysterescopic myomectomy is in preserving fertility so that women can become pregnant after fibroid removal. Also, hysteroscopic myomectomy in Dubai is practiced to relieve severe cramp pain women go through during menstruation.

Hysteroscopic myomectomy recovery

Hysteroscopic myomectomy is typically a day procedure and one needs only one to two days to recover. Individuals can return to work as soon as they feel good.

Hysterectomy myomectomy in Dubai is a common and safe procedure that has fast recovery, no external scars and immense benefit in helping pregnancy. However, these growth may come back, but a quality hysterectomy treatment can prevent the reoccurrence.
