Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy (Removal of cysts in ovaries)

 

 

Ovarian cysts are small fluid-filled sacs that develop in a woman's ovaries. In some cases, the cysts may dissolve after some time. This is common in women of the younger age group and in such cases, only observation is needed.
Surgery is needed in most cases due to the large size of the cyst, torsion of the cyst or due to the fear of it becoming cancerous. Cysts may be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), in which case, surgery is urgent and required.

Symptoms
• Fullness in the abdomen
• Painful periods and abnormal bleeding
• Problems passing urine completely
• Pain with fever and vomiting


Solution
• Surgery can be done for most of these ovarian cysts except in later-stage ovarian cancerous cysts.
• In surgery, the laparoscope (a flexible surgical device equipped with a camera, forceps, scissors and more) is used to locate the cyst. Once located, one or two more tiny incisions are made, through which surgical instruments are inserted to remove the cyst. The cyst can be extracted intact or it can be aspirated and cyst wall can be either cut off or eroded. The removed tissue should be sent for biopsy.
