[Treatment of fibroids with radiofrequency (11/01/2021)

Myomas are benign tumors, their degree of malignancy is less than 1% - they originate in the muscular tissue of the uterus.

The symptoms are diverse depending on the type of myoma, its location in the uterus or its size.

Thus, they tend to cause increased bleeding and pain, but also, fertility problems, difficulty in pregnancy, increase the probability of miscarriages, pelvic pain and even, depending on the size, increased abdominal volume .

The symptoms and the size of the fibroid determine the treatment to be used: hormonal treatments, surgical treatment (myomectomy or hysterectomy) and even the radiofrequency technique, which the Hospital de Molina has been developing for more than a year.

s one year.

"The radiofrequency of fibroids is an alternative to surgery and is minimally invasive.

Radiofrequency ablation acts directly inside the fibroid by thermocoagulating the tissue through a fine needle that emits at its tip radiofrequency, always in a controlled manner, in the myoma and without damaging the rest of the uterus.

In this way, the myoma reduces its size and symptoms ", explains the head of the Gynecology and Obstetrics Service of the Hospital de Molina, Esperanza Gadea Niñoles, who assures that "as it is a non-surgical technique, it does not damage the endometrium, which is very positive for the reproduction of women, since it avoids subsequent cesarean sections.

Likewise, the operating room and complications and length of subsequent stay ".

The appearance of fibroids is usually more frequent in women of childbearing age, although, according to Gadea Niñoles, they should also be checked during menopause.

Molina Hospital has successfully performed radiofrequency fibroids in patients with a desire for pregnancy and fibroids, in patients with excessive bleeding caused by these fibroids and also in adenomyosis.

In its commitment to minimally invasive surgery, the Hospital de Molina has "equipment for ambulatory hysteroscopy without the need for an operating room to assess the uterine cavity for fertility, as well as removal of polyps and Submucosal fibroids, that is, those that are within the endometrial cavity.In our Gynecology Service, we also perform an assessment of the cervix to assess cervical lesions through colposcopy, and treatments for tubal ligation and any other gynecological pathology using laparoscopy, whenever possible ", explains Esperanza Gadea.
