Abstract


OBJECTIVE
The aim of this study was to estimate the feasibility, safety and surgical outcomes of single port access laparoscopic myomectomy (SPA-M).
METHODS
We reviewed the medical records of 29 patients with uterine leiomyoma who underwent SPA-M in Gumi CHA hospital between March 2010 and August 2010. We performed SPA-M with conventional rigid straight laparoscopic instruments in all cases.
RESULTS
In this study, the mean of leiomyoma weight, operating time, and estimated blood loss were 55.43 gm(+/-54.79, range 5~220 gm), 69.68 min (+/-32.99, range 20~120 min.), 100 mL (+/-104.26 range minimal~300 mL), respectively. Transfusion was done in the one case.
CONCLUSION
SPA-M using conventional rigid straight laparoscopic instruments was feasible and could be an alternative to conventional multi-port access laparoscopic myomectomy (MPA-M).
