Understanding Hysteroscopic Myomectomy

Hysteroscopic Myomectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove fibroids that project into the uterine cavity (the inner hollow space of the uterus). This approach utilizes a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted instrument inserted through the cervix (the opening of the uterus). The hysteroscope allows for visualization of the fibroids, and specialized instruments are then used to remove them.

Hysteroscopic Fibroid Removal

Hysteroscopic Myomectomy Procedure

During the procedure, performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, here’s a general overview of what to expect:

  • Cervical dilation: The cervix is gently dilated to allow access for the hysteroscope.
  • Visualization and removal: The hysteroscope is inserted into the uterus, and the fibroids are visualized. Specialized instruments, like resectoscopes or lasers, are used to remove the fibroids with minimal bleeding.
  • Closure and recovery: Once the fibroids are removed, the hysteroscope is removed, and the cervix may not require any closure. You will be monitored in the recovery room until awake and stable, then typically discharged on the same day.

Symptoms Indicating the Need for Fibroid Treatment

While some women experience no symptoms with fibroids, others may face challenges like:

  • Heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding: Leading to fatigue and potential anemia.
  • Pelvic pain or pressure: A dull ache or pressure in the lower abdomen or pelvis.
  • Frequent urination: Fibroids can press on the bladder, causing urgency to urinate.
  • Pain during intercourse: Fibroids can sometimes cause discomfort during sexual activity.
  • Abdominal bloating or fullness: A feeling of a swollen or tight abdomen.
  • Back pain: In some cases, fibroids can cause back pain.
  • Difficulty getting pregnant: Large or multiple fibroids can obstruct the fallopian tubes or impede implantation.

Diagnosing Uterine Fibroids

Our experienced gynecologists at Emirates Hospitals Group will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose fibroids and determine if Hysteroscopic Myomectomy is the right approach. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Detailed Medical History: Your doctor will inquire about your symptoms, menstrual history, family history of fibroids, and your desire for future pregnancy.
  • Pelvic Examination: A physical examination of the pelvic organs to assess the size and location of the uterus.
  • Imaging Tests: An ultrasound scan is often used to visualize the uterus and identify fibroids. In some cases, an HSG (hysterosalpingography) X-ray or an MRI scan may be recommended for a more detailed picture of the uterine cavity and fallopian tubes.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The cervix is dilated to allow access for the hysteroscope, a thin lighted instrument inserted into the uterus. The fibroids are visualized, and specialized instruments are used to remove them with minimal bleeding. You will be monitored in the recovery room and typically discharged on the same day.

Recovery is typically quicker than traditional open surgery. You can expect some cramping or discomfort, managed with medication. While some activity is encouraged, avoid strenuous activity for a few days. Pelvic rest and follow-up appointments with your gynecologist are crucial for monitoring your recovery.
