We agree with much of what she has written but cannot help but feel that she presents an unnecessarily negative, alarmist and to some extent misleading view of the potential benefits of excising submucous fibroids in

Endometrial receptivity and implantation are not affected by the presence of uterine intramural leiomyomas: a clinical and functional genomics analysis.

Horcajadas JA, Goyri E, Higón MA, Martínez-Conejero JA, Gambadauro P, García G, Meseguer M, Simón C, Pellicer A. Fundación IVI-Instituto Universitario IVI-University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain. Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. 2008 Sep;93(9):3490-8. Epub 2008 Jun 17 abstract: CONTEXT: Uterine leiomyomas are the most frequent benign tumors during reproductive age. Whether intramural leiomyomas cause infertility and should be removed is controversial because no study has addressed the underlying mechanism of infertility. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to test the effect of intramural leiomyomas on endometrial function by comparing gene during the window of implantation and implantation in

Short-Term and Long-Term Results of Resectoscopic Myomectomy With and Without Pretreatment With GnRH Analogs in Premenopausal Women.

Campo, Sebastiano; Campo, Vincenzo; Gambadauro, Pietro Obstetrical & Gynecological Survey. 60(12):795-796, December 2005. This is a summary (with editorial comment) of an article that we had previously published on Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scadinavica (read more). Abstract: This paper presents data from a series of 80 premenopausal women who underwent resectoscopic myomectomy. Forty-two patients underwent myomectomy during the first few days of their menses (group A), and 38 were operated on after pretreatment with a GnRH analog consisting of 2 months of intramuscular triptorelin (3.75 mg Decapeptyl; group B). Pretreatment or no pretreatment was the decision of the managing gynecologist.

STUDY DESIGN: Out of 128 patients submitted to myomectomy, we considered eligible for this study only the 41 patients wishing to conceive after surgery and who did not present any plausible infertility factor, apart from the removed myomas. We have evaluated the pregnancy
