The source of chronic pelvic pain may be reproductive organ, urological, musculoskeletal - neurological, gastrointestinal, or myofascial. A psychological component almost always is a factor whether as an antecedent event or presenting as depression as result of the pain.

A Non-surgical Outpatient Procedure for the Treatment of Symptomatic Fibroids

Uterine myomas are the most common tumors of the female genital tract. = Hysterectomy has been a very common therapy in patients who have completed reproduction. In fact, uterine myomas = account for 20% of the 650,000 hysterectomies performed annually in the United States. Interest in uterine = preservation and organ preserving surgery through techniques of minimally invasive surgery has increased since the first = reports of laparoscopic myomectomy in 1980.

Dr. Dubuisson stated that there is is a great demand from patients for minimally invasive surgery and it is important that the surgeon apply certain conditions to the selection of patients for successful treatment of leiomyomas by laparoscopy. Dr. Dubuisson said that the indications for a safe laparoscopic myomectomy include the following:
