Abstract STUDY OBJECTIVE: To assess recurrence of leiomyomata after laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) and evaluate predictive factors of recurrence. DESIGN: Observational study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING: University hospital. PATIENTS: One hundred ninety-six women. INTERVENTION: Laparoscopic myomectomy with mean follow-up of 47 months. MEASUREMENTS AND RESULTS: Myoma recurrence included recurrence of initial symptomatology before LM, recurrence at clinical examination, and appearance of a myoma 2 cm or larger on ultrasound examination. Recurrence was observed in 45 patients (22.9\%). The mean time before recurrence was 42 months (range 4-95 mo). Eight women (4.08\%) required reoperation. The cumulative recurrence risk was 12.7\% at 2 years and 16.7\% at 5 years. Predictive factors for recurrence were number of myomas and nulliparity. CONCLUSION: According to our results, the cumulative rate of myoma recurrence within 5 years appears greater after LM than after laparotomy. However, this should not lead us to reject laparoscopy, which has many advantages compared with laparotomy, in particular its low morbidity.
