Clinical characteristics, laboratory data and postoperative results were analyzed. RESULTS: Mean size of myoma is 3.5 cm, mean op. time is 47 minutes, mean deficit of distension media is 193 cc, types of distension media is URIONE(R) and normal saline, average duration of hospitalization is 4.9 days, average changes of Hb. is 1.5 g/dL, complications of op. were happended in 14 cases, that is uterine perforation (n=8), hyponatremia (n=2), pulmonary edema (n=2), delayed bleeding (n=2). CONCLUSION: The indications of hysteroscopic myomectomy can be extended. In case that patient want to preserve the uterus, deep myometrial embedded or pure intramural myoma might be resected hysteroscopically by single- or multi-step procedure. Hysteroscopic myomectomy performed at observational period may be alternative to hysterectomy in selected cases. In case of recurrence, repeat procedure may reduce the chance of hysterectomy. Intraoperative ultrasonographic guidance is an important procedure in hysteroscopic myomectomy. It lower the complications and morbidity rate.
