A Practical and Affordable Surgical Solution for a Troublesome Uterine Issue


Juan Luis Giraldo Moreno* and Walter Emilio Osorio Ramírez

We currently recognize uterine leiomyomas as a problem that affects thousands of women around the world. One in 5 women of reproductive age may suffer from uterine fibroids and up to 50% of women in their 50's have had fibroids at some point in their life time [1]. However uterine fibroids are benign fibromuscular tumors of the myometrium with low potential for malignancy, so many patients end up in a follow-up program that only offers to wait until their hormonal activity ends with menopause for symptoms related to with fibroids begin to disappear spontaneously.
