Abstract

Laparoscopic radiofrequency thermal ablation is a promising new approach for the conservative treatment of a uterine myoma. I report a pad burn in a patient undergoing laparoscopic radiofrequency thermal ablation for a uterine myoma. The burn occurred at the leading edge of the pad attached to the patient's thigh. The burn was treated successfully with dressings.
