Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the outcome of laparoscopic uterine artery occlusion (LUAO) on ovarian function in the treatment of uterine fibroid and its influence on complications. Materials and Methods: A total of 61 patients with uterine fibroid accept LUAO from January 2013 to December 2015 were selected as the research objects. The changes of ovarian hormone secretion volume, internal blood supply of uterine fibroid, uterine volume, fibroid volume, and the occurrence of complications were observed before and 3, 6, 12, and 24 months after surgery. These results were compared with the outcomes of 63 patients with uterine fibroid accept myomectomy. Results: Compared with myomectomy treatment, the length of intraoperative blood loss, operation time, and hospitalization time of patients in the LUAO group were shorter (P < 0.05). Menstruation characteristics, uterine volume, and uterine fibroid volume postoperation were better than the prior ones in the LUAO group (P < 0.05). The ovarian secretion of luteinizing hormone, estradiol, and follicle-stimulating hormone levels in patients in the following 24 months after surgery were not statistically different in two groups (P > 0.05), and the pelvic floor function had similar results. Conclusion: Uterine fibroid treated by LUAO is effective, it can decrease the internal blood supply of uterine fibroid, narrow the volume of uterine fibroid, and little impaction on ovarian function. Hence, this kind of treatment is worthy of promotion.
