Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 24 hour holter monitoring of blood pressure [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • erythropoetin level [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]

Enrollment: 28
Study Start Date: May 2008
Study Completion Date: March 2009
Primary Completion Date: March 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: myoma, with or without hypertension
those with myoma with or without hypertension in holter monitoring
Procedure: myoma removal
surgical removal of myoma by hysterectomy

Detailed Description:


Myoma is the most common gynecoid tumor and produces many vasoactive substances, which may be a cause for secondary hypertension. Early reports suggested the association of myoma and hypertension. We studied the effect of myoma removal on hypertension and erythropoietin level to evaluate this hypothesis.

Patients & Methods:

In this single centered prospective cohort study, in twenty eight patients who were candidates for myomectomy due to myoma, 24 hour holter monitoring of blood pressure and serum erythropoietin were checked before and 6 weeks after hysterectomy.


Ages Eligible for Study:   22 Years to 55 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • candidate for myoma removal by hysterectomy
  • operable
  • hysterectomy is indicated

Exclusion Criteria:

  • patient refusal
  • inoperable patients
