Pregnancy with submucous myoma
AbstractHysteromyoma is a common benign tumor in females. While pregnancy with
submucous hysteromyoma is rare in the clinical setting, it often results
in abdominal pain, red degeneration, abortion, placental abruption,
premature rupture of membranes, premature delivery, fetal malformation,
postpartum hemorrhage, and endometritis because of the tumor location,
which in turn increases the incidence of cesarean section and
hysterectomy. Submucosal myomectomy is not recommended during pregnancy
because of the risk of miscarriage, bleeding, and premature delivery.
Moreover, whether submucous myoma should be removed during cesarean
section remains controversial. Thus, this study aims to review the
diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy with submucous myoma.
