Background. The aim of this study is to check whether there exists a difference in restitutio ad integrum of the uterus after myomectomy performed during Caesarean section and out of pregnancy.
Methods. Two different groups are considered: Group A (n=8) that underwent myomectomy during Caesarean section; Group B (n=10) in which myomectomy was performed out of pregnancy. All patients were followed with serial scan evaluations.
Results. The results showed a much more complete and faster absorption of hyperplasia and hypertrophy surrounding fibroid nodules when myomectomy was performed during Caesarean section.
Conclusions. A later pregnancy in patients who underwent myomectomy during Caesarean section might have a favourable outcome, possibly reaching a term gestation and vaginal delivery.
