STUDY OBJECTIVE To compare perioperative outcomes during laparoscopic myomectomy using a bidirectional barbed suture vs conventional smooth suture. DESIGN Retrospective analysis of 138 consecutive laparoscopic myomectomies performed by a single surgeon over 3 years (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING Major university teaching hospital. PATIENTS One hundred thirty-eight women with symptomatic uterine myomas. INTERVENTIONS In women undergoing laparoscopic myomectomy from… CONTINUE READING
