Submucosal myomas are a common cause of pelvic complaints and abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) and there are many available modalities for treatment. Hysteroscopic myomectomy is a minimally invasive approach for removal of submucosal leiomyomas. Alternatively, medical management can be attempted.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The period from onset of one menstrual bleeding (MENSTRUATION) to the next in an ovulating woman or female primate. The menstrual cycle is regulated by endocrine interactions of the HYPOTHALAMUS; the PITUITARY GLAND; the ovaries; and the genital tract. The menstrual cycle is divided by OVULATION into two phases. Based on the endocrine status of the OVARY, there is a FOLLICULAR PHASE and a LUTEAL PHASE. Based on the response in the ENDOMETRIUM, the menstrual cycle is divided into a proliferative and a secretory phase.
