Dr. Nezhat’s Tissue Extraction Technique

Intracorporeal power morcellation is used during minimally invasive gynecologic procedures, including total hysterectomy, supracervical hysterectomy, and myomectomy. Two current alternatives—­laparoscopic-assisted minilaparotomy and tissue extraction through a posterior colpotomy—show promise in minimizing the risks of tissue dissemination.

In this article, Dr. Nezhat describes contained transvaginal tissue extraction through a posterior colpotomy in the setting of laparoscopic myomectomy. A video of Dr. Nezhat’s technique is available at obgmanagement.com.
