LAAM A Safer Minimally Invasive Myomectomy for Fertility at CIGC
When you have patients that come in who are frustrated and you see their exposure to robotics or open surgery, you're thinking to yourself, what can I do to make it better for that patient Well, the LAAM procedure, which is laparoscopicassisted abdominal myomectomy, is a sort of a hybrid between laparoscopy and a very small cut to take out the fibroids. We developed the LAAM procedure because the laparoscopic approach has a lot of limitations. It is unable to remove smaller fibroids and fibroids inside the uterine cavity, and there's also.
Limitation in the ability to reconstruct the uterus properly. Most fibroid removal from the uterus is done by an OBGYN physician as an open surgical procedure. Now, this requires a hospital stay of two to three days with a six to eight week recovery period. Minimally invasive approaches such as robotic or laparoscopic myomectomies can be used to remove fibroids from the uterus, but are usually limited to smaller fibroids on the outside of the uterus. So myomectomy generally means, take out fibroids. In order to do a myomectomy properly, you have to be able to feel where the fibroids are.
Robotic approach can't do that. The doctor is sitting at a console 15 feet away and doesn't even have the ability to feel the uterus or the fibroids. A laparoscopic approach for fibroid removal is sort of the same. The doctor can feel the fibers with metal instrumentation, but with LAAM, we're able to actually put a finger into the uterus, identify where those fibroids are, with a sense of touch or feel, can remove all the fibers in the uterus that are present. The LAAM approach is a small 14 inch.
Incision at the belly button. The other incision is about three centimeters, only about that big, way down on the bikini line. So with those two incisions, you are actually able to take out the fibroids and feel where they are. You're not going to miss smaller fibroids. You're not going to miss fibroids deep in the muscle. That's vital for patients, especially those that are thinking about getting pregnant or have bleeding from fibroids. The reproductive endocrinologist, for example, prefers our approach to robotic or laparoscopic myomectomy, because with those other procedures, smaller fibroids.
Maybe left behind, which will be detrimental to fertility. While it's a very innovative technique, the part that is so incredible about LAAM is that it gives women and an opportunity to conceive by sparing the uterus. Many of these women may have still had that opportunity, but it would have had to have been through an open procedure which would have been far more painful, more time out of work, and LAM is giving them this opportunity through a very small incision and less pain. Power morcellation is never used during a LAAM procedure.
LAAM procedures performed by CIGC surgeons do not use power morcellation for removal of fibroids from the uterus. Power morcellation is not beneficial for the LAAM procedure. It takes longer time to perform, it has more risks, and it can potentially spread cancer if the cancer is already present in the fibroid. Get a second opinion. Talk to other doctors. If your doctor is not doing a LAAM procedure for fibroids, find a doctor that is. CIGC surgeons are the only ones in the metropolitan area doing it. So LAAM is extremely thorough, very safe,.
Uterine Fibroids Raised Concerns In Women
Uterine fibroids, which are noncancerous tumors in the uterus, have raised concerns of fertility and cancer in women. I'm Shelby Cullinan for the dailyRx News Network. Two recent studies found that many women had fears that uterine fibroids would lead to future health problems, including cancer. Women also had fears that they would eventually need a hysterectomy. The researchers, led by Dr. Elizabeth A Stewart from the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the Mayo Clinic and Mayo Medical School in Minnesota, also found that African American women reported more severe symptoms of uterine.
Fibroids, including heavy or longer than normal menstrual periods, than other women. African American women with fibroids had significantly more symptoms and we had some indication that this might be true before. But what we found is that the disparities in fibroids for African American women were confounded at every step. They had more symptoms before seeking treatment Consult with your physician to learn more about the treatments for uterine fibroids. To keep up to date with all the latest health news visit dailyRx.
