“Myoma is one of the most common benign tumors in women of reproductive age and is among the leading reasons for removal of the uterus. It is proven in 80% of surgically removed uteruses, and in a large percentage of cases, a fibroid is never alone…
Treatment methods need to be carefully selected so that they are minimally invasive and maximally effective for the patient. If there is an opportunity and conditions, it is good to choose the organ-preserving treatment.
This is the medication, which aims to reduce blood loss and the size of the fibroid, as well as suppress pain. This method is maximally effective, especially for patients who wish to postpone surgical intervention, including with the aim of preserving the woman's reproductive capabilities", shared Dr. Madeleine Kitanova, head of the department at the Sheynovo General Hospital.
Within the framework of the project, a special Facebook campaign with prizes is implemented on the page of the National Patient Organization, and informational materials have been prepared that will be distributed in he althcare facilities.
