BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to verify the efficacy of sodium-2-mercaptoethanesulfonate (mesna) in the chemical separation of tissues in abdominal myomectomies when used with the traditional mechanical separation techniques. STUDY DESIGN In a prospective, randomized study, 58 women underwent abdominal myomectomy. In 29 of these, we used mesna for highlighting and separating tissues, and in the other 29 we used saline solution for the same purposes. The variables evaluated included the… CONTINUE READING
