Laparoscopic myomectomy can be carried out in cases of subserosal and intramural fibroids. Laparoscopic myolysis can be proposed as an alternative to laparoscopic myomectomy in cases of large or multiple intramural fibroids in women aged over 40 or not desiring to bear more children but wishing to avoid a future hysterectomy. The authors report the technique and the long-term results in a series of 48 women with fibroids treated by myolysis. Because of the risk of bowel adhesions, further studies with another type of laser fiber are required. [less ▲]

The use of laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy with or without annexectomy has been widely discussed. We report the technique of laparoscopic supracervical (subtotal) hysterectomy (LASH), which was first performed in 1990. Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy was carried out in a series of 36 women. The duration time was 60 min in experienced hands. There were no major complications. The feasibility and low morbidity rate of this laparoscopic approach led us to propose LASH in certain indications, particularly in cases of a uterus with multiple submucosal myomas where hysteroscopic therapy is less successful.

Various treatments have been proposed for vaginal agenesis. The authors describe successful procedures using amniotic membranes as a graft on vaginoplasties. The amnion was not stripped from the chorion. The results showed the vagina to be well formed and of normal depth and caliber. [less ▲]

In order to prevent postoperative adhesions often present after CO 2 laser vaporization of large endometriomas, 62 patients with endometriomas greater than 3 cm diameter were treated with a new procedure. Partial cystectomy was performed using the CO 2 laser. Residual endometrial cyst was then vaporized. After laparoscopic vaporization of the interior cyst wall, a fibrin glue (Tissucol) was injected onto the vaporized area to close laparoscopically the ovarian cyst cavity. When performed, second-look laparoscopy demonstrated healing of the ovary without any periovarian adhesions. The incidence of periovarian adhesions was significantly lower (p less than 0.01) than in the group of women treated by laparoscopy and in whom the glue was not used to close the ovarian cyst cavity.

In 10 rabbits, ablation of the uterine horn endometrium and the fallopian tube was performed with the Nd:YAG laser at a power of 60 W using the touch technique. Eight weeks postsurgery, biopsies of the tissue site were obtained showing that the endometrium and tubal mucosa were completely destroyed. Thirty women were sterilized using a similar technique hysteroscopically. Tubal occlusion was demonstrated by hysterosalpingography in all cases at 3 months postoperatively. [less ▲]
