3-D Versus 2-D Laparoscopic Myomectomy
The study suggests that no additional benefits are linked with three-dimensional (3D) laparoscopic myomectomy. It was published in the European Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Reproductive Biology.

This study aimed to compare the surgical outcomes of three-dimensional (3D) and two-dimensional (2D) laparoscopic myomectomy.

A total of 64 patients with symptomatic uterine fibroids were randomly assigned to either the 3D (n = 32) group or the 2D group (n = 32). The primary outcomes were operative blood loss and change in hemoglobin levels. The secondary outcome was operative time.

The 3D and 2D groups were not significantly different in terms of operative blood loss, change in serum hemoglobin levels, and operative time. Furthermore, no differences were observed between the groups with regard to other surgical outcomes.

In particular, the 3D imaging system had no additional surgical benefit in laparoscopic myomectomy compared with the conventional 2D imaging system.
