We report the limits, complications, subsequent fertility and outcome of pregnancies after laparoscopic myomectomy. From January 1990 to October 1995, 143 patients underwent a first laparoscopic approach to myomectomy. A total of 41 patients (28.7%) had a laparoconversion (12 cases for a number of myomata >5, 15 cases for myoma diameter >7 cm, 12 cases for peroperative haemorrhage and two cases for adenomyosis). Seventy patients (49%) wished to conceive: 26 had undergone laparoconversion and 44 laparoscopic myomectomy. A total of 19 pregnancies were obtained in 17 patients after laparoscopic myomectomy (38.6%): eight vaginal deliveries, three Caesarean sections, four miscarriages, two abortions, one ectopic pregnancy and one therapeutic abortion. The pregnancy rate in patients with unexplained infertility and with multifactorial infertility was 48.2% and 20% respectively. The mean delay to conception was 11.3 months. No uterine rupture was noted. Pelvic adhesions were found in the four patients who underwent second-look procedure. Our preliminary results indicate that laparoscopic myomectomy is a useful technique.
