Small myomas have a high potential to grow and either to become symptomatic or to cause complications in women of reproductive age. Furthermore, although the risk of malignancy is rare, even the most experienced operator cannot replace the histological analysis to exclude malignancy or premalignant lesions. Such small symptomatic and asymptomatic totally or partially intracavitary myomas may be treated effectively and safety in office setting. The aim of this paper is to describe the currently available hysteroscopic techniques to treat myomas <1.5 cm also with a minimal intramural component without anaesthesia or analgesia in ambulatory setting reducing patient’s discomfort.
