1/1. Delayed leiomyoma degeneration after microwave endometrial ablation.

    BACKGROUND: Microwave endometrial ablation is an effective treatment for dysfunctional uterine bleeding. patients with leiomyomata, including submucosal leiomyomata up to 3 cm, may also be treated with microwave endometrial ablation. CASES: A 46-year-old woman with multiple leiomyomata and menometrorrhagia underwent microwave endometrial ablation. Two months after microwave endometrial ablation, she developed signs of peritoneal irritation. A negative laparoscopy excluded a thermal bowel injury. Imaging and clinical examination ultimately determined that her symptoms were due to leiomyoma degeneration. A 38-year-old woman with menometrorrhagia and leiomyomata underwent microwave endometrial ablation. Fifteen days after microwave endometrial ablation, she developed signs of peritoneal irritation. With a presumptive clinical diagnosis of microwave endometrial ablation degeneration, the patient was expectantly managed with pain medications and observation. CONCLUSION: Fibroid degeneration may have a delayed presentation after microwave endometrial ablation. Thermal bowel injury must be excluded in a patient presenting with signs of peritoneal irritation after microwave ablation of the endometrium before diagnosing leiomyoma degeneration, which can be managed expectantly.
