Abstract Surgical myomectomy is currently regarded as the standard conservative treatment for patients who wish to preserve their fertility. However, it presents two main problems: the intra- and postoperative risk of bleeding and the risk of recurrence of leiomyomas. Preventive occlusion of uterine arteries was described during laparoscopic myomectomy as one of the procedures addressing these issues.
