Laparoscopy uterine fibroids - therapeutic or diagnostic in nature

May 26, 2013

 laparoscopic uterine fibroids
 Laparoscopy uterine fibroids - a diagnostic study or operation, which is carried out using special equipment - a laparoscope, which provides access to the body through a few small holes. Laparoscopic access is widely used for operations in benign uterine fibroids.

   used in uterine cancer is rare. Basically it is required in the case where it is difficult to distinguish subserous (located under the outer shell of the uterus) myoma on a long thin stem from tumor abdomen or retroperitoneum.

The diagnostic study carried out using endoscopic equipment - laparoscope under general anesthesia. On the skin of the anterior abdominal wall is made of micro-incision, which is administered through an optical system (a tube with a diameter of less than 1 cm) from the illuminator. After that, the abdominal cavity is introduced special gas to spread the tissue. After researching on the skin is a little scar that eventually becomes invisible.

Diagnostic laparoscopy allows accurate diagnosis and, if necessary, take a piece of tissue for research to eliminate cancer Malignant tumor: cells are mad  Malignant tumor: cells are mad
 . Sometimes, diagnostic laparoscopy can go to a treatment - removal of fibroid surgery is performed.


Laparoscopic myomectomy

Laparoscopic myomectomy - the removal of uterine fibroids using a laparoscope, which provides gentle an operation without a significant cut tissue. The operation is performed under subserous uterine fibroids and intramural fibroids located inside the muscle layer of the uterus closer to its outer layer.

Laparoscopic myomectomy is sparing sparing surgery, which is performed mainly to women of reproductive age who are planning a pregnancy in the future.

Operation is conducted under general anesthesia. The skin is somewhat small (less than 1 cm) incisions through which the abdominal cavity is entered optical system and instruments. Using the laparoscope the doctor controls the instruments and see what is happening on the screen.

Fibroids removed with minimum damage to surrounding tissues. The postoperative period after such an operation takes place much easier and faster.


Laparoscopic hysterectomy with uterine uterus

Hysterectomy - the removal of the uterus Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) - a terrible need  Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) - a terrible need
 . The operation is considered to be a radical as ever saves a woman from fibroids and significantly improves the quality of her life. Conducted such an operation at the uterine myoma Uterine fibroids - operation can be carried out in different ways  Uterine fibroids - operation can be carried out in different ways
   only with the consent of the woman in the case, when a woman does not plan to have children in the future. That is, in fact, surgery is performed primarily for women who are already out of child-bearing age.

Hysterectomy can be complete or total - this operation involves removing the uterus and cervix, and is also called estirpatsiey uterus. This operation is carried out mainly when multiple fibroids, when the nodes are arranged not only in the body region, but in the area of ​​the cervix.

In most cases, subtotal hysterectomy is performed or supravaginal amputation of the uterus, when the cervix is ​​not removed. Since the cervix is ​​the basis of the perineum, subtotal hysterectomy preserves the function of the pelvic organs.

Laparoscopic hysterectomy is performed using the laparoscope, the optical system and the tools which, just as in the myomectomy, introduced through small incisions in the skin of the abdominal wall. The uterus was cut into small pieces and removed through a tube introduced into the abdomen.

Indications for laparoscopic hysterectomy are uterine fibroids and multiple rapidly growing fibroids. Laparoscopic hysterectomy is contraindicated in very large (more than 16 weeks) fibroids.


After laparoscopic surgery

After laparoscopic surgery does not require a long recovery, as the healthy tissues at the same time does not suffer. At the hospital, after surgery the woman is usually no more than two days. Wounds heal very quickly - only for the first day after surgery, a woman may need painkillers. During the six weeks after the operation should not be allowed sexual contact, within three months after the operation the woman should avoid significant physical activity.

Laparoscopic instruments allows surgery to remove uterine fibroids (myomectomy) or the entire uterus (subtotal and total hysterectomy) sparing methods, without damaging surrounding tissue. The postoperative period in this case is quick and almost painless.
