We read with interest the article “Vaginal birth after prior myomectomy” by Gambacorti-Passerini, a retrospective review of patients with previous myomectomy via laparoscopy or laparotomy who subsequently became pregnant [
]. The study contacted patients with previous myomectomies to query their later pregnancy outcomes. The conclusion of the article was “A successful vaginal delivery was accomplished by 90.4% of women who had TOLAM (trial of labor after myomectomy), without any case of UR (uterine rupture) or severe maternal and perinatal complications.”
