1400 gram multiple myomectomy using Chardonnens knife and colpotomy

We present the case of a 36-year-old woman with a palpable voluminous mass above the umbilicus. The symptoms were mainly digestive, additionally to the visible abdominal deformity; the menstrual periods were regular, but abundant. The ultrasound exam reported a 17cm myoma. The patient was reluctant to laparotomy. When she came to the presurgical consultation, she was advised that a laparoscopic approach had a high risk of conversion. Finally, she accepted to take the risk. This video demonstrates how important the surgical diagnosis is for making a final decision about the surgical approach.

We present the case of a 36-year-old woman with a palpable voluminous mass above the umbilicus. The symptoms were mainly digestive, additionally to the visible abdominal deformity; the menstrual periods were regular, but abundant. The ultrasound exam reported a 17cm myoma. The patient was reluctant to laparotomy. When she came to the presurgical consultation, she was advised that a laparoscopic approach had a high risk of conversion. Finally, she accepted to take the risk. This video demonstrates how important the surgical diagnosis is for making a final decision about the surgical approach.
