About one-third of 125 women subjected to myomectomy had a solitary tumor; only 11% of this group subsequently required hysterectomy because of recurrent tumor. The remaining two-thirds underwent multiple-type myomectomy; of these, 26% were later reoperated upon because of leiomyomas. Solitary-type myomectomy offers more favorable prognosis regarding recurrence of tumor.
