This study aims to evaluate the quality of life in patients treated for submucosal leiomyomas using the Truclear hysteroscopic morcellator compared to women managed medically. Study population includes women age 18 and older with symptomatic submucosal myomas. Patients will be asked to complete the Uterine Myoma Symptom and Health-related Quality of Life Questionnaire (UFS-QOL) at enrollment and at 1, 3, and 6 months after treatment.
Submucosal myomas are a common cause of pelvic complaints and abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) and there are many available modalities for treatment.
