Dr. Nezhat’s Tissue Extraction Technique
December 30th, 2014
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.
