Some surgical techniques and devices are shown in this uncommon myomectomy case. The procedure is begun with transitory clipping of uterine arteries and infundibulopelvic (IP) ligaments to avoid massive bleeding. Once the myomectomy has been performed, the uterine serosa is closed using the V-Loc™ barbed suture. The myoma is then morcellated with the Chardonnens cold knife, and finally the specimen is extracted vaginally through a culdotomy, which is partially closed using the EndoStitch® device.
