Abstract
For minimally invasive resection of large prolapsed pedunculated submucous myomas, improved techniques need to be established. An intranodal loop elec trosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) was specifically developed for the mo rcellation of myoma tissue during vaginal myomectomy. Vaginal myomectomy wa s performed on a 28-year old woman with a larg myoma occupying the small pe lvis. A prolapsed pedunculated leiomyoma of the uterus 13 cm in maximal dia meter was resected by intranodal morcellation of the myoma tissue employing LEEP. Intranodal morcellation technique utilizing LEEP is an effective met hod for the minimally invasive resection of large prolapsed pedunculated my omas.
