Abstract

Objective: To describe a successful pregnancy after a change in configuration of the endometrial cavity after magnetic resonance imaging-guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) for leiomyomas. Design: Case report. Setting: University hospital. Patient: A 40-year-old woman with known leiomyomas and a history of secondary infertility. Intervention: Magnetic resonance imaging-guided focused ultrasound surgery treatment of two intramural myomas, one with a significant submucosal component. Main Outcome Measure: Change in conformation of the uterine cavity. Result(s): A viable intrauterine pregnancy, with full-term uneventful labor and vaginal delivery. Conclusion(s): Magnetic resonance imaging-guided focused ultrasound surgery changed the configuration of the endometrial cavity, and a subsequent pregnancy resulted in a term delivery.
