Myomectomy is a common procedure performed by gynecologists for the conservative management of leiomyomas (fibroids). The surgical removal of fibroids can be associated with significant intraoperative blood loss and subsequent blood transfusion, which is an important morbidity associated with this elective procedure in reproductive-aged women. This video demonstrates various evidence-based strategies aimed at minimizing surgical bleeding during myomectomy. Techniques covered in this presentation include: (1) Preoperative use of medications such as vaginal/rectal misoprostal and intravenous tranexamic acid, (2) Intramyometrial injection of dilute vasopressin and (3) Temporary uterine artery occlusion with pericervical tourniquet. We demonstrate how these techniques can be used to minimize blood loss during abdominal, laparoscopic and robotic myomectomy.

In this video, we demonstrate three approaches to uterine artery occlusion at time of laparoscopic myomectomy as a blood-sparing intra-operative technique. A step-wise approach is applied prior to beginning the myomectomy which includes the following: 1) Selecting the appropriate approach to uterine artery occlusion (lateral vs. posterior vs. anterior) based on individual anatomy; 2) identification of relevant anatomy and important landmarks for the procedure 3) isolating the uterine artery and identifying the ureter; 4) occluding the uterine artery. As illustrated in this video, uterine artery occlusion can be performed by three different approaches, depending on both surgeon preference and unique patient anatomy. A systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature supports the efficacy of this procedure in terms of limiting blood loss, blood transfusion, and fibroid recurrence, albeit at slightly longer operative times.

In this video we present a laparoscopic approach to trachelectomy following supracervical hysterectomy. We outline statistics regarding supracervical versus total hysterectomy, the reasons why some patients may initially choose to keep their cervix, and the sequelae that eventually prompt trachelectomy in several cases. The main purpose of the video is to demonstrate a stepwise approach to trachelectomy using a relatively uncomplicated patient case. The five steps are to restore anatomy, create a bladder flap, perform anterior and posterior colpotomy, lateralize the uterine artery pedicles and finally, to close the vaginal cuff. We highlight this straightforward five-step process as potentially feasible for any practitioner who is already performing total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Although other cases may bear more complexity than the one demonstrated in this video, adherence to our approach can also be successfully applied in those situations.
