In this video, we present an approach to previously described suprapubic laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy that we feel mitigates some of the disadvantages of traditional myomectomy - increased operative time, increased blood loss and surgical expertise in laparoscopic suturing. Using footage from our own procedures of this kind, we propose a method by which a fibroid is just partially dissected free of the myometrium, is tagged with a unique suture and morcellated while still within the myometrium.
