Transvaginal Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery Myomectomy: A Novel Route for Uterine Myoma Removal.

J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2018 Sep - Oct;25(6):959-960. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China; Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas. Electronic address:

Study Objective: Transvaginal surgery is the most minimally invasive surgery for a gynecologic procedure, but it has the limitation of lack of exposure and limited surgical space when using traditional vaginal surgical instrumentation, such as in a hysterectomy for a uterus without descent or for a myomectomy. Transvaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) offers similar benefits of traditional vaginal surgery but also expands the horizon of transvaginal surgery by allowing the surgeon to perform procedures that are typically limited to an abdominal approach. The advantages of NOTES may include no incisional pain as well as a better cosmetic outcome. Read More

Indications for morcellation in gynecologic surgery.

Authors:
William H Parker

Curr Opin Obstet Gynecol 2018 Feb;30(1):75-80

Department of Reproductive Medicine, UC San Diego School of Medicine, San Diego, California, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Minimally invasive gynecologic procedures, in particular laparoscopic hysterectomy and myomectomy, often require tissue morcellation.

Recent Findings: Whether morcellated or not, myometrial cells can be found in the abdomen and pelvis after either laparoscopic or open myomectomy. Following morcellation, careful inspection for and removal of tissue fragments and copious irrigation and suctioning of fluid can remove residual tissue and cells without the use of containment bags.

Economics of gynecologic morcellation.

Curr Opin Obstet Gynecol 2018 Feb;30(1):89-95

Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Purpose Of Review: As the Food and Drug Administration raised concern over the power morcellator in 2014, the field has seen significant change, with patients and physicians questioning which procedure is safest and most cost-effective. The economic impact of these decisions is poorly understood.

Recent Findings: Multiple new technologies have been developed to allow surgeons to continue to afford patients the many benefits of minimally invasive surgery while minimizing the risks of power morcellation. Read More

Tissue Extraction Techniques for Leiomyomas and Uteri During Minimally Invasive Surgery.

Obstet Gynecol 2017 12;130(6):1251-1260

Center for Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California; and the Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

Fragmented tissue extraction (morcellation) of uterine and leiomyoma tissue in gynecologic surgery has been performed for decades, but recent years have seen a vast expansion of techniques to address risks associated with tissue dispersion. Use of power, or electromechanical, morcellation has largely been replaced by manual morcellation with a scalpel. Morcellation can take place through a laparoscopic incision, a minilaparotomy incision, or through a colpotomy. Read More

Morcellation of occulted sarcomas during laparoscopic myomectomy and hysterectomy for patients with large fibroid uterus.

Minerva Ginecol 2018 Feb 3;70(1):84-88. Epub 2017 Oct 3.

Joan and Sanford I. Weill Medical College, The Graduate School of Medical Sciences, New York, NY, USA -

In April 2014, the United States of America Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a safety communication warning of the risk of an unsuspected uterine sarcoma being morcellated during a laparoscopic procedure, and advised against the use of power morcellation. In November of the same year, this agency stated: 1) laparoscopic power morcellators are contraindicated for removal of uterine tissue containing suspected fibroids in patients who are peri- or postmenopausal, or are candidates for "en bloc" tissue removal; 2) laparoscopic power morcellators are contraindicated in gynecologic surgery in which the tissue to be morcellated is known or suspected to contain malignancy. In addition, the FDA warned that uterine tissue may contain unsuspected cancer, and the use of laparoscopic power morcellators during fibroid surgery may spread cancer, and decrease the long-term survival of patients.

Laparoscopic uterine artery bipolar coagulation plus myomectomy vs traditional laparoscopic myomectomy for "large" uterine fibroids: comparison of clinical efficacy.

Arch Gynecol Obstet 2017 Dec 27;296(6):1167-1173. Epub 2017 Sep 27.

Department of Woman and Child Health, Università di Padova, Padua, Italy.

Purpose: Laparoscopic myomectomy is the uterus-preserving surgical approach of choice in case of symptomatic fibroids. However, it can be a difficult procedure even for an experienced surgeon and can result in excessive blood loss, prolonged operating time and postoperative complications. A combined approach with laparoscopic uterine artery occlusion and simultaneous myomectomy was proposed to reduce these complications. Read More

Are preoperative experimental pain assessments correlated with clinical pain outcomes after surgery? A systematic review.

Scand J Pain 2017 04 19;15:44-52. Epub 2016 Dec 19.

Department of Clinical Research, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark; Pain Research Group, Pain Center South, Odense University Hospital, Odense, Denmark. Electronic address:

Background: Pain after surgery is not uncommon with 30% of patients reporting moderate to severe postoperative pain. Early identification of patients prone to postoperative pain may be a step forward towards individualized pain medicine providing a basis for improved clinical management through treatment strategies targeting relevant pain mechanisms in each patient. Assessment of pain processing by quantitative sensory testing (QST) prior to surgery has been proposed as a method to identify patients at risk for postoperative pain, although results have been conflicting.
