The purpose of this research study is to obtain preliminary data of the safety and effectiveness of Sepraspray in a limited number of patients who are under going a laparoscopic myomectomy. Sepraspray will be applied to the organs in the pelvic cavity following laparoscopic myomectomy. We will compare treatment with Sepraspray as a adhesion prevention barrier after laparoscopic myomectomy versus no adhesion barrier.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The safety endpoints will include the type and incidence of AEs, vital signs, wound healing, laboratory examinations, and medication usage. [ Time Frame: 30 Days post surgery ]
  • Efficacy endpoints are on adhesion formation and will include the success the success criterion for the individual patients as either anterior or posterior uterus free of dense adhesions. [ Time Frame: Until end of study ]

Enrollment: 41
Study Start Date: November 2007
Study Completion Date: December 2008
Primary Completion Date: December 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Sepraspray
Sepraspray applied directly to both sides of the uterus, Fallopian tubes, and ovaries (or opposing sites if not possible to apply directly). Sepraspray was applied via a sterile cannula at a tissue concentration of approximately 5 mg/cm^2.
Device: Sepraspray
No Intervention: Control
No anti-adhesion treatment was used.
