Abstract


OBJECTIVE
To evaluate the outcomes of pregnancy after laparosocpic myomectomy.
METHODS
A total of 99 cases of pregnancies after 512 cases of laparoscopic myomectomy which was performed at different 6 hospitals between 1995 and 2004 was selected. Retrospective chart review and telephone survey were performed for identifying outcomes of pregnancies, ectopic pregnancy rate, abortion rate, preterm delivery, spontaneous or cesarean delivery and presence of dangerous outcomes of uterine rupture.
RESULTS
There were 20 (20.2%) spontaneous abortion, 2 (2.0%) ectopic pregnancy. Among the delivery of 77 cases, 4 (5.2%) had vaginal deliveries and 73 (94.8%) had cesarean section. No case of uterine rupture was reported.
CONCLUSIONS
Outcomes of pregnancy after laparoscopic myomectomy showed safe and successful outcomes
