To report a safe and minimal bleeding procedure of abdominal myomectomy and to assess perioperative morbidity associated with this procedure. METHODS: From January 1998 to April 2000, We Studies 33 gynecologic patients undergoing abdominal myomectomy at department of obstetrics and gynecology, Choon-Hae Hospital, retrospectively. Particular attention was given to intraoperative estimated blood loss, blood transfusion requirement and the febrile morbidity rate. RESULTS: Myomectomy was performed successfully in all patients for whom it was scheduled. Mean intraoperative estimated blood loss was 211.5+/-91.3 mL. Four cases (12%) had an estimated blood loss greater than 400 mL. Preoperative, intraoperative or postoperative transfusion occurred in 6 cases (18%). There were no other intraoperative complications. Febrile morbidity occurred in 6 (18%) cases. Two cases (6%) experienced wound infection. CONCLUSION: We conclude that this procedure is safe and appropriate alternative for most women who want to preserve or enhance fertility potential.
