Uterine fibroid pseudocapsule studied by transmission electron microscopy
European Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, 06/08/2012
Malvasi A et al. – This ultrastructural feature suggests that when removing fibroids their pseudocapsules should be preserved. This study confirms preliminary evidence that pseudocapsules contain neuropeptides together with their related fibers, as a neurovascular bundle. The surgeon's behavior should be directed to carefully control and spare this muscular surrounding tissue during fibroid excision, in order to preserve the myometrium as much as possible.
