Myolysis

Myolysis is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove damaged or diseased muscular tissues due to certain medical conditions. It is usually performed to remove or reduce the size of abnormal uterine, prostate, or cardiac tissues. Sometimes, the surgeon leaves the destroyed tissues within the body, allowing body fluids to use them for the body's metabolism.

What is the cost of Myolysis?

The cost of myolysis surgery in Pakistan ranges between 1000 - 5000 PKR. However, it varies depending on the organ undergoing the surgical procedure and the surgeon’s fee.

What diagnosis leads to Myolysis?

Your doctor will recommend myolysis if he diagnoses the following health conditions:

  • Non-cancerous growth of uterine tissues or uterine fibroids 

  • Abnormal enlargement of prostate gland or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

  • Thickening of the heart muscles or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 

What is the procedure for Myolysis?

Once the medical condition is diagnosed, your healthcare provider may follow this procedure for myolysis:

  • You will be administered with general anesthesia to make you unconscious. This will help reduce your pain during surgery.

  • The surgeon will make an incision at the surgical site with the help of surgical instruments. 

  • During the procedure, the surgeon will also use imaging techniques - such as ultrasound, fluoroscopy, laser, or radiofrequency energy waves. This will help him determine the exact surgical site and the precision of ongoing treatment. 

  • The surgeon will then use surgical techniques that involve energy - such as heat, cold, or electric current. This energy is used to destroy the targeted tissues. In some cases, the surgeon removes these tissues from the body. While in others, the tissues are left in the body, which dissolve into the patient’s body over time.

  • Finally, the surgical site is closed with the help of stitches and bandages.  

What are the risks & complications associated with Myolysis?

The risks & complications associated with myolysis include:

  • Post-surgical bleeding

  • Risks of developing infections at the surgical site

  • Mild or severe pain or discomfort

  • Unintentional damage to the blood vessels, tissues, or organs surrounding the surgical site

  • Allergic reactions to the administered anesthesia

What to expect after Myolysis?

After undergoing myolysis, the patient can expect:

  • Prolonged pain and discomfort at the surgical site. For this, your surgeon will prescribe certain medications.

  • The surgeon will also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor wound healing and your overall well-being. 

  • As a postoperative precautionary measure, your healthcare provider will advise you to avoid lifting heavy objects and tough body exercises.
