What is Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy

An ovarian cyst is a condition in which a sac, filled with fluid or semisolid material, is developed inside or on the surface of one or both ovaries. Ovaries are the small organ present in the pelvic region in women. There are also different types of cysts that are normal and harmless. If a cyst is not related to any disease, it is known as a functional cyst. A functional cyst is formed each month during ovulation. Functional cysts shrink in size within 60 days without any treatment. Sometimes, ovarian cysts may cause complications, especially when they ruptured. Surgical interventions became more advanced and less invasive.  Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy is one of those minimally invasive procedures which is performed to remove cysts from ovaries.

Laparoscopic Ovarian cystectomy.

The procedure of laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy

  1. The patient is asked to be in a modified dorsal lithotomy position (A position in which the upper body rests on the bench and both the legs are raised above the ground using support).
  2. A small cut is made near the naval for inserting the laparoscope.
  3. A laparoscope (a thin, flexible tube having a camera and a light source at the tip) is then inserted into the abdomen through this cut.
  4. A needle is inserted about 2 centimetres above the symphysis pubis (a region below the urinary bladder where the two hip bones joints). A laparoscope is used to guide and confirm the aspiration of the cyst.
  5. A long artery forceps is then inserted into the abdomen for holding the affected ovary. Then the artery is pulled gently to the outside (at the surface of the incision). 
  6. The ovary is handled carefully, and gentle traction is applied to avoid injury to the ovary.
  7. The opening of the abdominal incision is temporarily closed using a rubber seal. It is done to prevent the seeping of cystic fluid into the abdominal cavity.

  9. The ovary is again suspended back into the abdominal cavity after removing the rubberised seal.
  10. Then the instruments are taken out and sealed using a suture.
