INTRODUCTION-uterine fibroids are common tumor of uterus, seen in reproductive age group. Fibroids during pregnancy produce special challenges during labour. Small fibroids with minimal symptoms treated with medical management, while large, multiple fibroids with pressure symptoms require surgical management. Fibroids during pregnancy produces special challenges during labour.
AIMS & OBJECTIVES –To study and analyse the Risk factors associated withfibroids, Clinical features according to different type offibroid, Different types of management of fibroid.
METHODOLOGY- fibroid cases were diagnosed clinically and with ultrasonography. Details of clinical examination findings, investigations and treatment modalities used were noted. Difficulties during surgery and methods to overcome were studied.
Histopathology details of specimen and other associated findings were studied.
RESULTS- Fibroids are Commonly seen in reproductive age group showing 45.5% cases. Majority cases are multipara seen in 79.35% cases and 5.14% cases are pregnant patients with fibroid. Intramural fibroid was seen in 60% and presented with menorrhagia (73%) and dysmenorrhea (50.5%). Fibroids presented with menstrual symptoms were seen in 96.15% cases. 61.7% cases underwent surgical management in that Total Abdominal Hysterectomy alone constitute 76.19%. neglected fibroids were common in rural areas making surgical management more common.
CONCLUSIONS- Pre-operative adequate preparations with general build-up for anesthesia and surgery, imaging studies, ureteric stenting where-ever required, use of GNRH analogues and following the principles of Fibroid surgery, made successful surgeries with no surgical morbidity and mortality. Caesarean section is common mode of delivery in fibroids in pregnancy with no complications.
