Ashley Two of my aunts had fibroids and they just took out their uterus. So they don't have any children. Dr. Saffer Ashley has very large fibroids. It's not a cancer. So it's just an abnormal growth that just keeps on growing. If Ashley one day wants to get pregnant the only real option is removing the fibroids but not removing the uterus. Nurse You'll get prepped and ready to go to surgery. Dr. Saffer She's 20 and it's very unusual to see fibroids this big, early on in life. Louella I'm Louella. I'm Ashley's mom.
Nurse Her mom Okay. Ashley I'm Alexis, her sister. Nurse Okay very good. Dr. Saffer This is a da Vinci SI System. The first component is the arms of the robot maneuver very similarly to a human hand with perfect wrist movements. The second component is the actual surgical console. This manipulates the instruments on the robotic arms. When I put my head where the headpiece is, I'm immersed in a 3D field, of fantastic resolution. Fibroids can start to twist on themselves. And that can cause excruciating pain. Ashley It feels like something is like eating me from the inside out. My stomach rises up.
And it stiffens. I'm going to kill you. Dr. Saffer There are ways of removing fibroids, the conventional way is where you make a large incision and take them out. How you doing Nurse Hello. How are you Dr. Saffer With Ashley's surgery there's no way we could do this minimally invasively if it wasn't for the robotic system. I'm going to go through a couple of things, as to what's going to happen this morning. We'll make little incisions in your tummy, and if we can safely take the fibroids out robotically, then that's what we'll do.
Ashley Mmhmm. Okay. Male I'll kind of hold your hand while things are happening. Ashley Yeah. Colleen What seems very routine to us on a daytoday basis is not routine to our patients. They're in a world that's unfamiliar to them. Nurse Just kind of nervous Ashley Yeah. Nurse That's alright. Colleen We understand their fear. We're here to alleviate those fears. Nurse Even nurses get nervous. I had surgery a couple months ago, they kept saying are you nervous No, no, no, no, no, no. But when it got right down to the point it was yes,.
I was nervous. Colleen All of us just as human beings want to know what to expect. Nurse Hugs and smooches and see you later. You're in great hands. Dr. Saffer It's the only robotic system that's dedicated to women's surgery in San Diego County. Nurse Did you meet Sophia the robot Dr. Saffer She'll be out of the hospital the next day. Recovery instead of being six weeks, tends to be 10 days. We attach the robotic arms to the patient. And then I'm right next to her, at the console during the surgery.
Nurse Wow. Dr. Saffer The last thing that you need to do is to get that fibroid tissue out of the abdomen. And we use something called a morcelator. It is sucking the fibroid out. You take it out through a small incision in the abdomen. And close up the middle incisions and we're done. The biggest hole is this one, and it's about a centimeter. How you doing Everything went very, very well. Louella Uhhuh. Dr. Saffer The good news is we did it all robotically, as we planned. She has a beautiful.
Patient Story Robotic Uterine Fibroid Embolization with Magellan
Ivana I love to walk. It really feels great. I'm a teacher. Sometimes I work with the preschoolers or first grade, and you want to kind of be on their level, when you're sitting down. So I wasn't able to sit down a lot of times. And I noticed a lot of bloating. My body just wasn't functioning the way that it normally was. Last year the doctor noticed that I had fibroids that were the size of lemons. I was in pain a lot. I couldn't wear anything that buttoned. It literally looked like I was nine months pregnant. I was embarrassed. I sought.
Medical advice from my OBGYN about other options other than a hysterectomy. And he referred me to Dr. Bagla. Dr. Bagla Ivana, when she sought us out to have uterine fibroid embolization and it was performed robotically, she was ecstatic and knew that she was undergoing a procedure that would offer her a chance to really change her life. With traditional surgery, such as hysterectomy or myomectomy, there is an open incision, and most women are not ecstatic about having a large incision in the lower part of their abdomen, the scar, the potential.
For bleeding, or infections. With fibroid embolization as a whole, that procedure can be performed minimally invasively on an outpatient basis sometimes, and just through a simple needle hole. What's unique about the Magellan System is its ability to get to both right and left uterine artery, which is critical for the procedure. It offers support for our microcatheter to then deliver the embolic material right into the correct place within the uterus. Ivana The puncture that he made with the Magellan Robotics System, literally it was a little bandaid. And I remember, I had trouble finding where the incision was. Now I'm breathing.

Myoma Uterine Fibroids What is Myoma, Causes, Symptoms and Treatment for Myoma
A fibroid is a benign tumor that mainly consists have muscular tissue and usually grows inside the uterus. Fibroids are also called myomas. Its size ranges widely, from a small tumor the size of a pea to a large tumor almost the size of the uterus. Myomas are classified into three types, depending on the location where they are found. The intramural myoma, a fibroid that grows in the muscular wall of the uterus. This subserosal myoma, a fibroid located just beneath the outside mucosal covering of the uterus. Here the fibroid projects to the.
Outside and occasionally remains connected with the uterus only through a small stalk. The submucosal myoma, a tumor that grows beneath the surface of the uterus lining. Therefore, this type of fibroids can grow into the uterine cavity. The actual causes have development of a fibroid are still unclear. However, it has been documented that fibroids are associated with high levels of estrogen, the female sex hormone. Fibroids can only developed during reproductive years of women. Following menopause, the production of estrogen decreases which will usually cause fibroids to shrink or disappear.
Myomas are more common in nonpregnant and infertile women. In general, fibroids are asymptomatic or associated with just a few complaints if any complaints. If any complaints occur, then the location, size and type of the fibroid are the major factors. Fibroids can affect nearby structures. They can cause compression of the bladder, which may lead to urinary complaints, or may obstruct the intestine, which may result in constipation. Other complaints can be backaches, abdominal problems, menstrual flow disturbances. Fibroids can impede normal childbirth, which may require caesarean delivery. Fibroids relatively more often lead to miscarriages.
Whenever fibroids cause symptoms, they need to be removed or shrinked. Medications sometimes cause fibroid to shrink by blocking the production and secretion of estrogen. In other cases, surgery may be required to remove the fibroid. The type of surgery depends on the location of the fibroid. Sometimes it's possible to remove the fibroid with the help of the tube entered through the vagina and the procedure is called hysteroscopic myomectomy. In other cases, surgery through the abdominal wall may be necessary. In the case of a large fibroid, hysterectomy may be the only solution.
Sawsan Assanie, MD Tutorial Profile
Gtgt There's been a lot of tradition in my family. My father was actually a general OBGYN, and so I grew up in a family that gynecology and obstetrics was the routine. I think I went into OBGYN for very different reasons than my father, and have kind of developed my career specific to my particular interests. But the basis for it has always been a passion, particularly for women's health. My primary focus, or the way that I like to see patients is to make sure to see each individual patient as a unique person what are her specific needs,.
What are her specific goals and to make sure that she's very well informed about all of the options that are available to her, whether they're medical or surgical. And so I really like to tailor my treatment plan particularly to that patient's needs, and what seems to be best appropriate for her. My focus is in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, as well as I see a lot of patients with endometriosis, and chronic pelvic pain. I have specific training in advanced gynecologic surgery, particularly laparoscopic surgery, and robotic surgery, and I've tailored my practice to see patients with uterine fibroids,.
Understanding fibroids and abnormal uterine bleeding
Gtgt Sawson AsAsanie, M.D., MPH My name is Sawson AsAsanie, and I'm the director of the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Program at the University of Michigan. Today we're going to be talking about abnormal uterine bleeding, which is a very common condition that affects many women in their reproductive years. Abnormal bleeding is any type of bleeding that is irregular. That could be bleeding in between menstrual cycles, bleeding that is heavier than usual during menstrual cycles, bleeding after intercourse, or even bleeding after someone's gone through menopause. There are many different causes of abnormal bleeding, and some might be due.
To hormonal changes, some might be due to structural abnormalities such as lesions within the uterus, and others might be due to systemic medical conditions. When a woman has a menstrual cycle that occurs greater than 35 days from start to start, less than 21 days from start to start, or bleeding in between their menses, after intercourse, or after menopause, these are all indications that something might be abnormal, and she should be examined by her physician. Uterine fibroids are a common cause of abnormal bleeding, and the lifetime risk.
Of developing uterine fibroids is approximately 70 to 80 percent. Uterine fibroids are benign tumors of the uterus and can cause many symptoms such as abnormal uterine bleeding, which can be either heavy or irregular, pelvic pain, andor pelvic pressure related to the large size of fibroids. However, not all women with uterine fibroids have symptoms, and the decision to proceed with treatment for uterine fibroids really depends on whether or not those symptoms are bothersome. If you think that your bleeding symptoms are abnormal or bothersome, or if you suspect that you might have uterine fibroids, you should talk to your doctor.

Gtgt I knew I wanted to be in women's health. I wanted to do women's health preventive medicine, reproductive health kind of was a broad spectrum. And then, when I was in medical school, I was exposed to various subspecialties, and definitely, given my early interest in women's health, OBGYN appealed to me. But simultaneously, while I was in medical school, I also went to law school and got a J.D. and had a very strong interest in women's rights and reproductive rights. So, reproductive endocrinology and infertility was a natural field for me that allowed me.
To be involved in women's health, the medical piece of it, as well as women's rights, human rights, reproductive rights. So, the field allows me to incorporate all my training and participate in women's health, not just as a health care provider, but also as a advocate for women in every aspect of a woman's life. What excites me about my work is just from the initial contact with a couple who are struggling with infertility, which is something a basic human need, human desire.
