Introduction: Submucous myomas represent one of the main indications of operative hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopic resection of submucous fibroids should be a simple, well-tolerated and effective procedure and ideally accomplished in in only one surgical step. Methods: Retrospective cohort single Centre study of 1244 women undergoing hysteroscopic myomectomy. Data analysis included patients' and the myomas characteristics. A multiple logistic regression was carried out in order to assess which variables were able to determine a multiple step procedure. Results: 1090 myomas (87.62%) were completely resected in a single-step procedure (SS group) whereas a multiple-step procedure (MS group) was needed for the removal of 154 fibroids (12.38%). The mean size of myomas resected in the SS group was 22.83 ± 9.36 mm whereas fibroids of the MS group measured 29.67 ± 10.76 mm The overall feasibility of hysteroscopic myomectomy in one surgical procedure was 88.28%. All hysteroscopic myomectomies of G0 fibroids were completed in a single step. The chance of success to accomplish the treatment in a single-step for G1 and G2 myomas were 88.59% and 82.55%, respectively. The multivariate analysis revealed an inverse correlation between age and multiple step procedures and size of myomas were all directly correlated to multiple step procedures. Conclusion: The grading, the size of the myomas and the age of patients play a crucial role in completing the hysteroscopic myomectomy in a single step. Only the diameter greater than 3 cm in G2 myomas is correlated to a higher risk of a multiple procedure.

Abstract

Introduction: Submucous myomas represent one of the main indications of operative hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopic resection of submucous fibroids should be a simple, well-tolerated and effective procedure and ideally accomplished in in only one surgical step. Methods: Retrospective cohort single Centre study of 1244 women undergoing hysteroscopic myomectomy. Data analysis included patients' and the myomas characteristics. A multiple logistic regression was carried out in order to assess which variables were able to determine a multiple step procedure. Results: 1090 myomas (87.62%) were completely resected in a single-step procedure (SS group) whereas a multiple-step procedure (MS group) was needed for the removal of 154 fibroids (12.38%). The mean size of myomas resected in the SS group was 22.83 ± 9.36 mm whereas fibroids of the MS group measured 29.67 ± 10.76 mm The overall feasibility of hysteroscopic myomectomy in one surgical procedure was 88.28%. All hysteroscopic myomectomies of G0 fibroids were completed in a single step. The chance of success to accomplish the treatment in a single-step for G1 and G2 myomas were 88.59% and 82.55%, respectively. The multivariate analysis revealed an inverse correlation between age and multiple step procedures and size of myomas were all directly correlated to multiple step procedures. Conclusion: The grading, the size of the myomas and the age of patients play a crucial role in completing the hysteroscopic myomectomy in a single step. Only the diameter greater than 3 cm in G2 myomas is correlated to a higher risk of a multiple procedure.
