Effect of Myoma Removal on Blood Pressure and Erythropoetin Level
Myoma is the most common gynecoid tumor and produces many vasoactive substances, which may
be a cause for secondary hypertension. Early reports suggested the association of myoma and
hypertension. We studied the effect of myoma removal on hypertension and erythropoietin
level to evaluate this hypothesis.
Patients & Methods:
In this single centered prospective cohort study, in twenty eight patients who were
candidates for myomectomy due to myoma, 24 hour holter monitoring of blood pressure and
serum erythropoietin were checked before and 6 weeks after hysterectomy.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
