Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To describe the diagnosis and management of uterine artery pseudoaneurysm after laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy. DESIGN: Case reports. SETTING: Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Radiology at General Hospital. PATIENT(S): A 32-year-old woman and a 41-year-old woman each developed uterine artery pseudoaneurysm after laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy. INTERVENTION(S): Uterine artery pseudoaneurysm after laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy was diagnosed on ultrasonography, computerized tomographic angiography, and digital subtraction angiography, and treated by transcatheter arterial embolization. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Uterine conservation. RESULT(S): Fertility preservation was achieved in both of these women who developed uterine artery pseudoaneurysm after laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy. CONCLUSION(S): Early diagnosis and endovascular management of uterine artery pseudoaneurysm after myomectomy are important to prevent life-threatening hemorrhage caused by pseudoaneurysmal rupture.
