Objective: To assess the feasibility and outcome of laparoscopic Myomectomy and multiple layer closure of myoma bed for management of myomas at a tertiary care hospital. Materials and Methods: Four hundred and seventeen patients from September 2005 to September 2010 with large and moderate size myomas were managed by laparoscopic Myomectomy. Indications were subfertility, menorrhagia and abdominal mass. Pre-operative evaluation included history, clinical examination and sonographic mapping. Myomas were enucleated and retrieved laparoscopically. Myoma beds were sutured in multiple layers by endoscopic intracorporeal suturing. Results: Three hundred and fifteen patients presented with subfertility, 45 with menorrhagia and 57 with abdominal mass. The average maximum diameter of myoma was 9 cm. The mean duration of surgery was 120 min. The mean post-operative stay was 24 h. No intra-operative complication occurred and hospital course was uncomplicated. In one case, minilap incision was given for retrieval of myoma and suturing of the bed. Two patients had minor delayed wound healing of the morcellator port site. The patients did not report any complaints during follow-up except one patient who developed omental hernia at morcellator port site. There was no rupture of scar and very low adhesion scores in subsequent caesarian sections or second look scopies. Conclusion: With proper multilayer closure of the myoma bed, laparoscopic Myomectomy is feasible for moderate and even large myomas and has excellent outcomes.
