uterine leiomyoma
Uterine Leiomyoma
  • “fibroids”
  • “uterine myomas”
  • benign proliferations of smooth muscle cells of the myometrium.
  • Cause of uterine leiomyomas is unclear
  • Fibroids are monoclonal
  • Each tumor resulting from propagation of a single muscle cell
  • Proposed etiologies include development from --smooth muscle cells of the uterus or the uterine arteries ,from metaplastic transformation of connective tissue cells, and from persistent embryonic rest cells

Hormonally responsive to estrogen and progesterone

  • Pregnancy- grow quickly and to huge proportions
  • Menopause- stop growing and atrophy in response to naturally ↓ endogenous estrogen levels.
classification by locations
Classification by locations
  • Submucosal- beneath the endometrium, commonly assoc w/ heavy of prolonged bleeding
  • intramural- in the muscular wall of the uterus, MC
  • subserosal -beneath the uterine serosa
  • 30% of all American women and 50% of African American women will develop leiomyoma by age 40
  • highest prevalence occurring during the fifth decade
  • Rare before puberty
risk factors
Risk Factors
  • increasing age
  • early menarche
  • low parity
  • tamoxifen use
  • Obesity
  • 2.5x more likely develop fibroids-1st degree relatives
  • and in some studies a high-fat diet.
  • Smoking has been found to be associated with a decreased incidence of myomata
clinical manifestations
Clinical manifestations
  • 50-65% have no clinical symptoms
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding- MC symptom
  • Menorrhagia- presents as increasingly heavy periods of longer duration
  • Metrorrhagia- bleeding between periods
  • Menometrorrhagia- heavy irregular bleeding
  • Chronic IDA, dizziness, fatigue
physical examination1
Physical Examination
  • Depending on their location and size
  • uterine leiomyomas can sometimes be palpated on bimanual pelvic examination or on abdominal examination
  • nontender irregularly enlarged uterus with “lumpy-bumpy” or cobblestone protrusions that feel firm or solid on palpation.
diagnostic evaluation
Diagnostic Evaluation
  • Pregnancy test- all women
  • History and PE
  • Ultrasound (pelvic/transvaginal) – MC means of diagnostics
  • Most cases of uterine fibroids do not require treatment
  • Px with actively growing fibroids- ff up every 6months to monitor size and growth
  • Treatment- severe pain, heavy or irregular bleeding, infertility, or pressure symptoms; extremely rapid growth

Treatment depends on the patient’s

    • Age
    • Pregnancy status
    • Desire for future pregnancies
    • Size and location of the fibroids
medical therapies
Medical Therapies
  • Medroxyprogesterone- shrink fibroids by decreasing circulating estrogen levels
  • GnRH agonists- shrink fibroids by decreasing circulating estrogen levels; stop bleeding, and increase the hematocrit prior to surgical treatment of uterine fibroids.
uterine artery embolization uae
Uterine artery embolization (UAE)

decrease the blood supply to the fibroid, thereby causing ischemic necrosis, degeneration, and reduction in fibroid size

  • No to women planning to become pregnant after the procedure
surgical intervention
Surgical Intervention
  • Myomectomy- surgical resection of one or more fibroids from the uterine wall; preserve fertility; increase risk of recurrence- 50%
  • Because of the potential for hemorrhage, surgical intervention should be avoided during pregnancy, although myomectomy or hysterectomy may be necessary at some point after delivery.

Indications for Surgical Intervention for Uterine Leiomyomas

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding, causing anemia
  • Severe pelvic pain or secondary amenorrhea
  • Uterine size (>12 weeks) obscuring evaluation of adnexae
  • Urinary frequency, retention, or hydronephrosis
  • Growth after menopause
  • Recurrent miscarriage or infertility
  • Rapid increase in size
