Abstract

Study Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of the Gynecare Morcellex tissue morcellator (Ethicon, Inc., Somerville, NJ) in laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy and myomectomy. Design: Randomized controlled trial (Evidence I). Setting: University department of obstetrics and gynecology. Patients: Seventy-four patients with symptomatic uterine myomas scheduled for laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy or myomectomy. Interventions: Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy and myomectomy followed by tissue morcellation using the Gynecare Morcellex (experimental group) or the Rotocut G1 morcellator (Karl Storz GmbH & Co. KG, Tuttlingen, Germany) (control group). Measurements and Main Results: Patient characteristics and surgical data were noted for both groups. No difference was detected between groups in any parameters assessed, whereas a significant difference (p
