  Purpose
The aim of this study is to test our hypothesis that the use of unidirectional knotless barbed suture in single-port laparoscopic myomectomy could facilitate the suture of uterine wall defect after myoma enucleation as multi-port laparoscopic myomectomy did.

Condition Intervention Phase
Uterine Myoma Procedure: Single-port laparoscopic myomectomy Procedure: Multi-port laparoscopic myomectomy Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Single-port Laparoscopic Myomectomy Using Barbed Suture Versus Multi-port One: a Multi-center Randomized Controlled Trial

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Suturing time [ Time Frame: Intra-operative ]
    the time duration for the suture of uterine wall defect after myoma enucleation during laparoscopic myomectomy


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Cosmetic satisfaction [ Time Frame: Post-surgery 1 month and 3 month ]
    We will compare patient's cosmetic satisfaction through self-reported questionnaire (Body image Questionnaire).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Single-port laparoscopic myomectomy
We will use barbed suture (V-Loc) under intervention of single-port laparoscopic myomectomy
Procedure: Single-port laparoscopic myomectomy
The aim of this study is to compare single-port laparoscopic myomectomy using barbed suture (experimental group) with multi-port laparoscopic myomectomy using barbed suture (control group) in terms of operative time (esp. suturing time).
Active Comparator: Multi-port laparoscopic myomectomy
We will use barbed suture(V-Loc) under intervention of multi-port laparoscopic myomectomy.
Procedure: Multi-port laparoscopic myomectomy
The aim of this study is to compare single-port laparoscopic myomectomy using barbed suture (experimental group) with multi-port laparoscopic myomectomy using barbed suture(control group) in terms of operative time (esp. suturing time).

Detailed Description:
The investigators plan to perform a multi-center randomized clinical trial on women scheduled for laparoscopic myomectomy. All women will get the same preoperative and postoperative care. Women will be assigned by chance to one of two groups: one group will receive single-port laparoscopic myomectomy using V-Loc™ suture material (study group). The other group will receive conventional multi-port laparoscopic myomectomy using V-Loc™ suture material (control group). The investigators will collect information on suturing time and complications related to surgery.
