Hysteroscopy and removal of polyps using Myosure Morcellation

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop from the muscular tissue of the uterus. Most women will develop uterine fibroids at some point in their lives, although most cause no symptoms. In some cases the fibroids can cause symptoms including heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure or pain, and / or frequent urination, requiring medical or surgical therapy.

Hysteroscopy is a procedure used to look inside the uterus as part of the investigation into abnormal bleeding. Polyps (usually benign growths inside the cavity that look like fleshy grapes) and fibroids (benign muscle growths often on a stalk) are common causes of irregular, heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, or bleeding after the menopause.

Myosure is a new technique, performed by Mr N Holland, Consultant Gynaecologist, whereby they are removed under direct view. The device (a Morcellator) removes the abnormality and provides a specimen for analysis. This is a performed as a day-case procedure and in appropriate circumstances can even be done whilst the patient is awake.

It is simpler and  safer than other techniques such as formal resection, and it reduces the need for alternative surgical intervention such as hysterectomy.
