Live Video of Laparoscopic Surgery for Torsion of Ovarian Cyst
This video demonstrates Laparoscopic Surgery for Torsion of Ovarian Cyst by Dr. R.K. Mishra at World Laparoscopy Hospital. Ovarian torsion is when the ovary twists around its stalk. The blood vessels to the ovary are located in this stalk. The twisting cuts off the blood supply to the ovary, causing the ovary to possibly die. The Fallopian tube can also be involved in the twist.
Ovarian torsion is the fifth most common emergency of the female reproductive organs. Sometimes a mass or cyst in the ovary can cause twisting. If the stalk of the ovary is long, it may also lead to torsion.
