[Myoma and pregnancy].

[Article in German]


According to Kayser myomas occur in 20% of all women over the age of 35. Such patients require special attention from their obstetrician. Although the presence of small myomas may not necessarily interfere with the pregnancy, they can start to grow quite rapidly at this time. In such cases the rates of abortion and premature birth are enhanced and there are often serious puerperal complications. It is therefore recommended that the nodes are enucleated during early pregnancy. Here a 20% abortion rate is to be expected. In the case of large myomas it is necessary for postpartum to be supervised individually. Here two cases are reported, one conservative with long puerperium and one operative with twin pregnancy. Both patients were discharged with healthy infants.
