Abstract:

Reflections on “In-bag manual versus uncontained power morcellation for laparoscopic myomectomy: randomized controlled trial” by Venturella et al.

  • Daniel J. Kaser M.D.

    Dear Drs. Falcone and Flyckt,

    Thank you for this thoughtful reflection on Venturella et al.’s RCT in this month’s F&S comparing the total and morcellation-specific operative times of in-bag manual tissue extraction to uncontained power morcellation of fibroids.

    Has your group had any experience with the PneumoLiner, the recently FDA-approved containment system for power morcellation?

    Thanks for your input.
