Laparoscopy for ovarian cysts
Ovarian cuts are solid or fluid-filled sacs or pocket (cysts) within or on the surface of an ovary. Simple ovarian cysts are prevalent and harmless & reported in 10 million every year. Ovarian cysts usually disappear on their own but if they don’t, it can cause trouble later. There are different kinds of ovarian cysts simple cysts, complex cysts, malignant, non malignant, which can be follicular cysts or corpus luteum cysts. Generally, ovarian cysts are harmless but sometimes they can cause complications like:
- Ovarian torsion. Cysts that enlarge can cause the ovary to move, increasing the chance of painful twisting of your ovary (ovarian torsion).
- Rupture. A cyst that ruptures can cause severe pain and internal bleeding.
Symptoms of ovarian cysts:
- Lower abdomen or pelvis pain
- Fullness or heaviness in the stomach
Hysterectomy is the permanent solution to these problems but you can’t conceive after hysterectomy.
For other conditions — including fibroids, endometriosis and uterine prolapse — you may be able to try less invasive treatments first. There are risks of hysterectomy like infection after the surgery, blood clots, excessive bleeding, and early menopause.
Most of the ovarian cysts that are less than 1cm disappear on their own within a few months. So watchful waiting is advised in most cases. Birth control pills can also be a treatment modality. And surgery like oophorectomy or laparoscopy is also a choice of treatment for more giant cysts. Some cysts can be removed without removing the ovary (ovarian cystectomy). In some cases, your doctor might suggest removing the affected ovary and leaving the other intact (oophorectomy).
Laparoscopy or robotic myomectomy helps in the removal of ovarian cysts. A laparoscope is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen to remove cysts. Larger cysts can be removed by breaking them into small pieces; this process is called morcellation. Robotic myomectomy gives a magnified, 3D view of your uterus, offering more precision, flexibility, and agility than is possible using some other techniques. Laparoscopy is the best and latest technique for the removal of ovarian as it has more minor complications than open surgery and has less scarring and blood loss.
