Transvaginal radiofrequncy myolysis is minimally invasive treatment by creating thermal energy in myoma and causing the necrosis of uterine fibroid cells. Unlike myomectomy which is considered to be the most common treatment of uterine myoma in infertile women, transvaginal radiofrequncy myolysis can be performed as outpatient procedure using only sedation for pain relief without additional need for medication. Due to its less invasive approach, the hospitalization is not required. There are many published studies reporting the pregnancy complications and outcomes after myomectomy, but there are very limited data on pregnancy after myolysis. Therefore, we present a case of successful pregnancy and childbirth after transvaginal radiofrequency myolysis of uterine myoma in an infertile women with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Transvaginal radiofrequency myolysis, Myoma uteri, Pregnancy
