Large Fibroid Uterus - Laparoscopic Hysterectomy


A 44 year old woman presented with a 12 month history of abdominal distention, bloating, pelvic pain and urinary frequency. She had noted menstruation had become heavier.


Pelvic USS revealed a large multi-fibroid uterus.


She subsequently had a Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. The uterus weighed 750g.
