Surgical management of broad ligament fibroids

Author and Disclosure Information

Overview and demonstration of successful, safe, minimally invasive technique


Although broad ligament fibroids are rare, their surgical management includes nuances of anatomical awareness, traction and counter-traction techniques, and proper hemostasis.

This month’s surgical video presents the case of a 40-year-old woman who presented to the emergency department with sudden-onset abdominal pain. She had a history of menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea and had undergone uterine artery embolization.

The objectives of this technique video are to provide:

  • an overview of the background, clinical presentation, and imaging related to broad ligament fibroids
  • pertinent anatomical landmarks
  • a clinical case of robot-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy, demonstrating surgical technique
  • key points for successful and safe surgical management.

I hope you find this video to be a useful tool for your practice and that you share it, and the other technique videos on my Video Channel, with your colleagues.
