Abstract

There is a place for both laparoscopy and laparotomy in the surgical management of patients with uterine myoma. The surgeon's expertise in laparoscopic suturing is a crucial requirement for laparoscopic myomectomy. Hysteroscopic myomectomy is the best treatment of women with submucous myoma.
