Uterine myomas are the most common pelvic tumors in women, diagnosed in approximately 12%-25% of reproductive age women. Most women with symptomatic myomas are between 20 to 40 years, which are prime reproductive years. Surgical myomectomy is performed secondary to infertility as it can significantly improve fecundity. Myomectomy has become increasingly prevalent secondary to minimally invasive techniques, which allow for reduction of blood loss and postoperative pain, decreased hospital stay, and recovery time.
