Uterine rupture in a nulliparous woman at 26 weeks’ gestation after laparoscopic myomectomy
Uterine scar dehiscence following laparoscopic myomectomy is very rare. We present a case of a nulliparous woman who was pregnant with twins and who had undergone laparoscopic excision of a small subserous myoma 2 years previously. The patient had subsequently developed a uterine rupture at 26 weeks’ gestation; however, this was not initially suspected as the cause of the patient’s abdominal pain owing to the rarity of this event. All pregnant patients who have a history of laparoscopic myomectomy, superficial or deep, should be closely monitored throughout pregnancy and uterine dehiscence or rupture should be suspected if they present with abdominal pain.
