Despite the amount of research into hysteroscopic myomectomy, questions about the optimal treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding remain. This study reviewed publication trends on this topic from 2002 to 2019 and assessed the usefulness of studies. A total of 580 articles were published on PubMed in this time frame, in 15 different languages. There were meta-analyses (1.6%), systematic reviews (12%), and randomized controlled trials (4.2%). Twelve percent were published in high impact factor journals. After applying our selection criteria, the usefulness of 37 articles was assessed: one article scored high, 31 scored moderate, and five scored low. The costs of these studies were estimated at US$ 971 700.
