Bilateral Salpingo-oophorectomy for Ovarian Mass with Transvaginal Retrieval
11 months ago
We performed a microlaparoscopic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy using a 10-mm umbilical port for laparoscope insertion and two 5-mm ports for the ligasure and the grasper. The transvaginal route was used for specimen retrieval. A unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy is the surgical removal of one ovary and one fallopian tube, both of which are located on the same side of the body and share a common blood supply (in contrast, a bilateral procedure involves the removal of both ovaries and fallopian tubes). Laparoscopy, also known as diagnostic laparoscopy, is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It's a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions. The instrument is inserted through an incision in the abdominal wall.
