The study was undertaken to evaluate clinical safety and usefulness of laparoscopic myomectomy with analyzing clinical course and postoperative complications of 93 patients underwent laparoscopic myomectomy at Yosu Chon-nam Hospital and to introduce operative methods executed in this hospital. METHODS: Total number of patients underwent laparoscopic myomectomy at Yosu Chon-nam Hospital from May 2001 to December 2002 was 93. With ward chart and admission recordings, Age, parity, symtom, size of myoma, number of myoma, location operation time and hemoglobin change were recorded. Data were analyzed with Microsoft Excel. RESULTS: The mean age of patients was 42.68 ( +/- 6.05) years. The mean parity was 2.02 ( +/- 0.96). The mean number of myoma was 1.70 ( +/- 1.27). The mean weight of myoma was 71.7 ( +/- 56.4) gm. The most common symtom was hypermenorrhea. The location of myoma was submucosal, intramural, subserosal in large order. The mean operation time was 101.1 ( +/- 30.2) minutes. The mean hemoglobin change after operation was 1.40 ( +/- 0.81) g/dL. Mean hospital stay was 3.90 ( +/- 1.20) days. The operative complication was trocar site bleeding (2 cases), surgical emphysema (2 cases). In 2 cases, Laparoscopic procedure was converted to laparotomic method. CONCLUSION: Indication of operation was extended in almost all age (including reproductive age) and 93 Laparoscopic myomectomy was done safely and effectively without severe complications. However, to obtain more safety and usefulness of laparoscopic myomectomy, adequate laparoscopic instrument and expertized operative technic should be demanded. In near future, laparoscopic myomectomy will be more popular and effective by variable technical development and ordered discipline.
